    I have been working at Warner Chilcott Limited full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    More generous bonus structure than other pharmaceutical companies, employees were offered stock options. The better the rep, the more stocks you received.

    Cons

    They were acquired by Activas Inc. Upper management was always changing as well. Shortly after I was hired it seemed like the company was becoming more and more unstable.

    Pros

    Great 1st job in the industry. If you do well you will make good money. Great insurance benefits. Great company car and phone allowance.

    Cons

    Minimum requirement for med ed dinners a month so you are never home with your family. Trimester timelines change mid-trimester. Only paid once a month. Always a fear of getting fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with actual management experience. Not sure who senior management is...disconnect between reps and senior management.
