It's good money, that's for sure! If you're able to keep up a good rapport with doctors, clinicians etc, you'll be fine. What kind of med sales are you considering?

If you are a social person and well organized do it. Work life balance and pay is a lot better than most jobs. Always a risk your position gets cut (sales seems to be first on chopping block) so don’t spend all those quarterly bonuses.

You make good and reasonable pay in sales. There are bonuses given to employees who meet the target quarterly and annually. Overall if you have the personality needed for client engagement, then you go for it.

From what I understand, pharma and med device sales is incredibly lucrative (at least at this point in time). If you've already got experience in sales, the transition should be pretty easy.

I’m a fourth-year associate who just got an offer to go in house. My experience is in litigation but I’d be working on more corporate matters, which scares me. But I hate billables and firm culture and the in-house company is a huge company where you can make moves in once you’re there.

My salary would be the same but I’d get better benefits and bonus opportunities in house. Plus I’m a mom and will have on-site childcare. Should I be scared that switching from litigation will be boring?

I have a total of 4 years sales experience, 1 year in life insurance sales and 3 in retail banking (lending, investment referrals, merchant services referrals).
