    Pros

    This review is before the Valeant acquisition and will most likely not apply after. Great perks; yoga classes, game room, benefits, 401K/ profit sharing, and competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Very process heavy, regulatory and legal processes are extensive for all departments. Some higher up management are not good managers and would be best utilized in other areas. Certain departments do not recognize hard work; advancement opportunities come through being here a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Reallocate manager positions to those that can and want to manage people.

    Pros

    Kinda seems like a moot point since all the pros will be gone in a little while since Medicis was purchased by Valeant

    Cons

    Purchased by Valeant, worst decision ever.

    Pros

    Compensation is great if you're performing.
    Great ability to pursue additional career options.

    Cons

    Compliance is a bear---harrowing and mandating everything.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the sales force to do its job.
