I worked at Allergan full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Nice vacation allotment if you can find time to take it. Pretty campus. A great place to learn a variety of skills.Cons
1.) Too many layers of ineffective management. Directors, Sr. Directors, & VPs are routinely hired from outside the company (advertised job descriptions will specify that they want people from outside) rather than growing internal talent and promoting from within. These managers frequently have no experience with the tasks their reports perform and have no idea how the tasks are accomplished but will happily tell you it is taking too long to do it and you have to find a way to speed it up. VPs and Sr. VPs often seem more interested in increasing their headcount and building their empires than in getting quality drugs on the market to help consumers.
2.) Frequent organizational changes. The constant managerial instability makes it difficult to perform at an optimal level as you spend a huge amount of time trying to explain to new managers what you do. Averaging more than a supervisor a year is normal.
3.) Work/life balance seems to depend on your role. There were some people who only put in 30-35 hours a week and others who routinely worked 60+ but could never catch up on their assigned tasks and metrics.
4.) Getting promoted is difficult (my department averaged only about a 7% rate per year) and even when you are promoted it isn’t really worth it as the raise is only about 5%. Management is however, happy to revise your job description giving you additional responsibilities (but never removing existing ones) without an increase in compensation or title.
5.) Telecommuting, flex-time,etc. are not a thing here. Pretty much everyone is a salaried employee. Some managers recognize work-life balance, others will demand to know every time you leave 15 minutes early for a dentist appointment while ignoring the weekends worked and 12 hour days you put in.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Look at the organizational charts. How many Supervisors, Managers, Directors, Sr. Directors, VPs, & Sr. VPs do you really need and what are they actually contributing?Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
