Best Pharmaceutical Companies of 2013 and How to Evaluate Them

medical sales job webinarIf you are a pharmaceutical sales representative looking for a new position, you need to know which pharmaceutical companies are the most stable.

Before I list the names, there are many events going on behind the scenes that require a little research on your part to make sure the company you are applying to fits your needs:

  • Is this company going to lose a patent or have a patent expire?
  • If so, how much of a market share might the company lose?
  • Does the company have any up and coming drugs or patents that can replace the losses?
  • What is the average compensation for sales people?
  • How do they compensate? Is there a base salary? What are commission percentages?
