    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    We were well compensated and had great benefits before Valeant took over. It typically was a great work environment before Sept. 2012. After the news of the Valeant acquisition, employee moral dropped significantly. The "real" Medicis died on 12/14/2012.

    Cons

    Late hours, lots of overtime, boys- club mentality. Many hoops to go through just to get something through the FAC process. The process was much more complicated than it needed to be.

    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job growth was great, salary and bonuses were great too. Manager was competent and fun to work with. Creativity was encouraged and my ideas were taken seriously. Flexible work environment and great culture. The people were phenomenal and competent in their job skills and level. Employee training and support were superb.

    Cons

    It was sold to another pharmaceutical company and all of the great aspects of the company went away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too bad the company was sold, I enjoyed my time very much.

    I have been working at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I think the IT department has been a cohesive backbone for this company and that was because we brought our desk up to ITIL standards

    Cons

    I cannot think anything negative to say about this company. Our team comes in and gets the job done.

    Pros

    Company is growing rapidly, which translates into opportunities for you to work on special projects that support business growth initiatives.

    Cons

    Company generally hires seasoned professional. It's a little more difficult to get into the door if you are just out of college.
