Before I joined the company, I thought that the position of an MR required mostly humble bowing to generate business. That aspect does exist, but a lot of the work is creative, such as making proposals based on doctors' needs and refining the details through discussions with many doctors. It's almost as if my expectations before I joined the company were betrayed, but in a good way.
The name Otsuka Pharmaceuticals made me think of POCARI SWEAT and Oronamin C. Because it's a large firm, I thought it would be difficult to carve out my own space, but after joining the company, I discovered that each of us is assigned an area and the ability to make our own proposals, as if we were the area president. I find it so interesting that each and every one of us is given the authority and the freedom to take action as required, within that authority. It's safe to say that Otsuka Pharmaceutical has a culture and climate that fosters creativity.
