    Pros

    Barr was a special place to work, and I think most people appreciated how lucky we were to work with Bruce and his team.

    Cons

    Always more work to do than there was hours in the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are always a few bad apples in a bunch -- get rid of those.

    Pros

    Room to grow with a progressive company. Good salary and benefits. Solid training and employee development opportunities. Really visionary senior management that cared about its people.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment required wearing many different hats. Internal communication could have been more efficient and timely to help employees position themselves to support company initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Savor the quality of the people within the organization and their commitment to supporting/responding to corporate objectives without wavering from an ongoing compliance focus.

    I worked at Barr Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Very generous salary, bonus, 401K company matching, and health benefits.

    Cons

    It's a 40 hour week vs. 35 hour week. No flex hours and telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the company was never sold to Teva. It seems investment returns for shareholders are more important than employees.

    Growing company that enabled and encouraged employees at every level to grow with it.
    Very committed Human Resource team really cared about employee needs.

    Commitment to quality and compliance.
    Some of the best, most talented employees in the industry work there.

    Cons

    Need to improve internal communication channels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In spite of being an acquisition target because of a solid product pipeline and a very well trained workforce please don't allow us to lose our unique identity to the corporate giants that may not be as able to manage the business as effectively as the current executive group..
