    I have been working at Allergan (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a very good company to work for until Actavis took over. Great salaries, great location and a great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    The environment is not the same anymore and the morale is still very low since Actavis took over. A lot of the great people that made the company great were left go.

    Advice to Management

    Leave Allergan alone. They were one of the most successful companies before. Obviously the knew what they were doing.

    I worked at Allergan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smaller company, access to leadership, accountability

    Cons

    Recently bought by Actavis. Even though keeping the Allergan name in the US, Actavis is the "ruling company" and I'm concerned that the culture may change. Change isn't always bad - if you're interviewing with them, ask a lot of questions about what's going to change in 2016 and beyond.


  7. Clinical research associate

    I worked at Allergan full-time

    Pros

    With a good lead, there are many opportunities for growth, therapeutically aligned studies and regionally based territories for the most part.

    Cons

    Career development is a slower ladder to climb. A conservative company, challenging to find strong leadership.

    Well known company with good, efficacious products and great research and development. Great at building markets and supporting those markets with sizable investment in marketing tools

    I have been working at Allergan full-time

    Pros

    Empowering, can move between divisions and careers, like a family, constantly learning new things, allows telecommuting, encourages fitness and healthy lifestyle

    Cons

    not a place to just put in your 8 hours and go home, a lot of uncertainty and churn since the recent acquisition

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can to keep the good people that stayed, but allow those that are not happy to go so the company can move on to the next challenge.
