I'm sooo fed up with pharma . . .
Some of you probably have already noticed. I'm getting real tired of writing about stodgy pharma companies, so a few other stories have appeared on this site.
After writing tons of articles about the drug industry, for Brandweek, and a couple of books, I feel like I've just about had it with the geeks in that industry and the rich men who gulp it down at the trough.
Let's get real, we can kid about good-looking pharma sales reps, hired for theis sex-appeal, and we can make fun of Kool-Aid drinking Pfizer reps hanging out at Starbucks, but fact is that they resemble preaching mormons more than anything more exciting. Many of them reputedly even are mormons.
And anyone who stands at the gates of one of our wealthy pharma companies as the masses take off from work in their BMWs and Audis and Toyotas will note that the crowd getting out is all but exciting.
Of course, that doesn't mean it isn't fun to sometimes write about the fat cats that make it to the corner offices, but let's get real, to write about that stuff every day? Nor can any pharma blog ever aspire to really significant readership, simply because very few people think that area is all that fun to read about.
Then again, good advice is to write about what you know, and to stick by the stuff to which you can add value.
Well, I don't care.
I'm really bored.
And this blog is branded as questioning any authority, so right now I'm questioning myself. Shouldn't I change something?
