    I worked at Valeant

    Pros

    The people were the best part of Valeant. Almost everyone was very professional and competent. Sales force is recognized as some of the best sales representatives in the business. They have some good products and strong executive leadership with an aggressive strategic plan.

    Cons

    Valeant laid off alot of their good talent and knowledge resources after merging with BioVail last fall. Rumor has it that communication down to the sales force is scarce and has many people wondering what is really going on at headquarters.

    I worked at Valeant full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Philosophy of CEO, that remuneration will always be based on performance. A tight knit community that permits upward mobility, as well as vast leadership opportunities

    Cons

    Fast paced decision making dealing with global footprint divesting due to focus of core business, followed by rapid acquisition of other pharma with similar core product lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all stakeholders with respect and consideration. Grant a degree of autonomy to non manufacturing department such as Sales and Marketing.
