Growing Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cephalon

ProsGreat Benefits, ability to innovate, evolving culture, summer Fridays, most people are easy going and friendly, faster pace than big pharma, great pay,

ConsGrowing organization that is still refining processes and procedures. This may not bode well for those seeking structure. Culture is evolving and requires flexibility.

A Changing Environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cephalon

ProsGood salary
Not big pharma
Some latitude to choose targets

ConsProduct going off patent and nothing in pipeline
Senior management keeps changing
More big pharma tools being implemented

Advice to Senior ManagementThe patent expiration for our main product is unsettling and the sales force needs some information about our future so we can stay motivated.

Great Pay & Benefits, if you can stand constant change of policies and procedures

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cephalon

ProsGreat Medical Benefits, and good dental/vision (new)
Salary
Excellent PTO

ConsSenior Management continue to change policies and procedures for multiple things without asking feedback, checking programs before initiating, and little communication (if any) before rolling new procedure out.

Overlook slackers and come down hard on those that bust their humps if one thing is not 100% accurate.

End of yr review is pointless, especially when finding out that "ratings" were given based on how many for each team (ie: Team with 10 ppl told can only give out so many "2s" - which means above satisfactory)

New VPs all from Wyeth - trying to make us the next Wyeth

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the little men. Things may run smoother if you took the time to ask our opinion about something before changing policies.
