Pros

Brands name, company recognition in the field.

Cons

Terrible communication from senior management to lower levels, global and local strategy doesn't exist or hasn't been deployed properly. Promotions based on seniority not performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication and empower lower levels.

    Pros

    Allergan has a great senior management team who set up reasonable goals and directions.

    It's about the right size that tele-conference is not yet the norm and you get to work and communicate with team members daily.

    Promote learning and growth.

    Have great teams that takes responsibility of their individual functions.

    Cons

    Workload can be heavy.

    Compensation is sometimes below industry standard especially for junior level employees. When combined with the high living cost and fewer pharmaceutical job opportunities in southern california, it can be quite discouraging to attract talents.

    Allergan is a very frustrating place to work if you have ambition.

    Pros

    The workload at Allergan is fairly low and so are expectations by management. The RDIS department in particular spends a substantial amount of money on contractors that deliver nothing to projects.

    Cons

    Complete lack of accountability and direction. Promotional opportunities are based on time at the company instead of performance and successful delivery of projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start providing clear leadership and strongly consider a drastic restructuring of the RDIS department. Focus on retention of new employees and begin transitioning work away from the 'close to retirement' staff. Enforce consequences relating to missed delivery on commitments and gross overspending.
