Work life balance is impossible to maintain here. Extensive pressure to sales team but training is very much influensive in career for future opportunities. Managers and HR is so strong for performers but increment process is not so smooth here to get.

For 1st job only. It is although a very employee friendly but few grey areass can hold your progress. Sometimes they will give you irrational assignments which have no practical implications for the growth of the company.

Good Environment to learn and good processes are in place the only draw back is No time for family if you are in managerial role, incentives are there but on lower side. Acknowledgement of good work is rare and job pressure is huge,management is cumbersome.
Pros
Good process and system
Cons
Too many people make the process clumsy.

It is more of a boos driven culture. The boss is the deciding factor. He can make or brake you. But on the other hand this is not a good sign for a organisation, the meritocracy should prevail
Pros
Its ok. The partying

Long hours

If you want to learn systems and processes then this is the ideal organisation. A lot of zonal power is vested on to the zbm. Good place to be into but there were certain issues related to immediate managers and top management

A typical day is when there is no actual atmosphere for work and make a decision clear.

I have learned how to work under pressure, making the negative possibilities into affirmative, finishing a tough task easily and smoothly.


Management is very supportive and friendly.


Co-workers are very supportive. Their advises are very useful.

They are very frank.


The hardest part of my job is when closing comes at month end.


I learn some new lessons everyday during my working. It gives me enjoyment and make my work easy.

High objective setting and high achievement was the yardstick of measuring people performance. A challenging environment was always there which helped an individual to be more competent to handle any complex situation more successfully.
Pros
Yeanding gala meeting and recognition time to time as well as salary.
Cons
Family life was compromised to some extent

I Am Attached With The Job of Medico Sales And Marketting. Where In One Side I Always Have To Be Updated About Marketting Scenarios, I Have To Know My Products,My Competitor Also, & On Other Sides Achieve My Target Month After Month.
I was learnt From The Management Why Availability Is A Major Concern For Any Brand To Make It Big.

Hardest Part Of Our Job Is To Convert A Doctor Prescribing Brand Into OTX Brand.

Most Enjoyable Part Is To See These OTX Component Is Converting Into OTC Component As Soon As Possible.
