    Pros

    Solid core of management team. Very flexible company for top performers. Consistently strong performing company with opportunity for career growth.

    Cons

    Stability over the last year has been called into question given the recent merger activity. Massive layoff possibilities has caused many to lose focus.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency throughout the merger process would help to allay the fears of the workforce. A more refined program for career development pathways.

    Pros

    Descent pay and benefits. The facility closed down as part of some merger money saving scheme. I was hired towards the end, so I can’t say I know too much about working there, but that is irrelevant now anyway.

    Cons

    Research Facility closed in Goleta.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Allergan is the atmosphere of the staff. Everyone is very professional and willing to listen to their colleagues opinions.

    Cons

    The company was purchased by another company Actavis so not sure how that will affect the Irvine location. The intention of Actavis is to keep the Irvine facility but I don't know more than that.

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated people. Focus on patients. Quality products. Beautiful campus. Good pay and benefits. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Ridiculously bureaucratic, even though management prides itself on being "nimble." Way too many meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on data and results. Determine the organizational structure based on what works, not consulting firm's advice.

    Pros

    Great Products and growth potential.

    Cons

    Used to be great, used to care about employees. Cut staff in half with the same workload, unstable, layoffs every few months. Stressful and emotionally exhuasting.

    Advice to Management

    Don't step on the older experienced employees to advance the new hires who are fresh out of school PHDs. Create more advancement opportunites for employees. New high deductible medical plans are the pits.
