    I worked at Watson Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had good benefits for a reasonable price and decent salary with fairly wide pay ranges. Most Co-woworkers knowledgeable, helpful & friendly.

    Cons

    Too many lay-offs. Too much out-sourcing of jobs. Watson was a small company that became a much larger company through acquisiton over a relatively short period of time. Unfortunately, management didn't grow with the company & didn't know how to merge & manage all the acquisitions.
