Typical day:Organizing a week and month in advance: Calls on doctors, specialists and pharmacies. Arranging functions and meetings.

I learnt never to give up, and that the client is the integral part of my business.


Management: Area Sales Manager and Management team very supportive and knowledgeable.


Workplace culture: Very ethical and service orientated.


Hardest part of the job: A lot of competition in Medical products, sales depend on one's knowledge and customer service.


The most enjoyable part of the job: Working with people, making targets and helping patients with your product.
Pros
Car allowance, Medical Aid contribution
Cons
None

Extremely supportive of work/life balance. Provides tools and resources to work from home. All employees are treated as equals- all staff are on first name basis and can present concerns and successes without judgement.

Company with great potential, but lacks good leadership. Everyone is concered about covering their backs and people will throw you under the bus just to save themselves. HR department is almost non existence, the employee turnover is the worse I've seen for a such a small company.

The performance management process is pour and floured and very subjective.


Unless there is change in leadership and senior management i wouldnt recommend joining the organisation
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Bad organisational culture

In my view, management is everything. the management soured my entire experience and view of the organization.
work life balance was bad

the culture was made by the people I knew and grew to love.

meeting targets was near impossible, there were so many boxes to tick

the colleagues were the most enjoyable aspect of the job
