Pros

Benefits, annual profit share, perfect place to slack off (if you've been employed long enough), okay salaries (on the cheap side)

Cons

- Type A personalities not appreciated. Preference goes to low risk employees (w/ kids, debt, no ambition)
- You will find managers/directors with an associate bachelor degree managing people with top MBAs!
- CEO is a high schooler. I want to know which high school he attended so I point it out to Bloomberg to include in their MBA rankings.
- It is who you know ... friends are hiring friends.
- Firm is lacking integrity; currently under Corporate Integrity Agreement with the Federal Government for off labeling marketing of Depakote (= reason for the split from Abbott)
- Disorganized company still trying to separate from the mother ship (Abbott). Cultural survey pointed out lack of work life balance.

Advice to Management

- Get an educated CEO.
- Maintain or increase the stock price until I cash out (that is, before Gilead launches its hepatitis C drug ahead of ABBV).

    Pros

    great comp and benefits
    awesome landscaping
    plenty of parking

    Cons

    In Training and Development there is such an overemphasis on "perception", that all objectivity is lost. This would not be the worst if the directors were competent. Unfortunately, most are not. This leads to all sorts of dysfunction. Unfortunately, the T&D dysfunction pipeline will carry this right into the rest of company.

    Advice to Management

    -Don't be afraid of dissenting opinions.
    -If you want to be "nimble and decisive" as the CEO suggests, perhaps you should develop those that are nimble and decisive. They seem to leave. You cant expect people who have been ponderous, bureaucratic, and political, to change into nimble and decisive. Not. Gonna. Happen.
