Check out our preliminary pharmaceutical industry survey results for yourself…

Recruiting Executives Inc. has conducted a pharmaceutical industry survey for females. Survey invitations were sent via an email message which contained a link to the survey hosted by Survey Monkey. This link is uniquely tied to the survey and the participants email address.

What we learned thus far:

Preliminary survey results underlined the difficulties that the pharmaceutical industry faces in trying to develop and promote females. I can speak first hand for the tremendous efforts undertaken by the industry since I joined in 1996 as I successfully completed an extensive management development program, several other leadership training programs and was promoted three times; twice to a management level position. Moreover, I was offered a third management level position but declined as my top priority was keeping a great quality of life for my daughter. There are a number of positions within the pharmaceutical industry that offer a great work-life balance for working mothers.

Preliminary survey results include:

  • 93.7% of all female pharmaceutical industry survey respondents identifying themselves as consistent top performers as evidenced by their national sales rankings, contributions or performance results.
  • 90.55% of female pharmaceutical industry survey respondents reporting being promoted at least once and 37.79% of females reporting being promoted into management level roles and above.
  • 80.31% of females indicating that they have been invited to further develop their skills or the skills of others within the pharmaceutical industry.
  • 56.69% of females indicating that they currently do not want or are unsure if they want a management role making it very difficult for the pharmaceutical industry to promote females.
  • 51.18% of females indicating that they “self-selected” out of promotion pools on one or more occasions again making it very difficult for the pharmaceutical industry to promote females.
