    I worked at Allergan

    Pros

    They pay you enough to not want to leave.

    Active culture outside of work.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy beyond belief. VP+ count their money and have little clue what's going on beyond Pyott's goals.

    Directors are playing power games amongst themselves to no avail.

    Workers put their heads down and collect their $100k.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Allergan.

    Interview Details

    I had to work hard on this one - I sent a ton of emails to family friends who I knew worked there. Got only a couple unsuccessful responses. But I got my resume floating around, and someone at HR picked it up and referred me to the VP of international sales. I had a quick phone call with him where he asked me about my past experience and why I wanted to work with them. Very casual and unlike a formal interview. I then met up and grabbed coffee with him where we discussed what the work was, and he gave me the offer
