I worked at King Pharmaceuticals (More than 10 years)
King was an excellent employer. I found it to be very forward looking and progressive in terms of advancing the organization, at least in the business unit where I was. I don't have any regrets or complaints.
I don't really have any big cons to report. I only wish the company were still around. It was a unique and enjoyable place to work.

Negotiation was n/a. The offer presented was more than I anticipated. Benefits were outstanding at the time I was hired.
