I have been working at Allergan

Pros

Some of the people are worth getting to know
Training provided is quite good

Cons

Gossip goes unchecked
Accused of wrong-doing by management that may not be true
HR give you a 1 day warning to move your belongings out and leave the office once you have resigned
Do not work in the clinical research department

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some sort of policy on office gossip and enforce it, do not listen to it.
Locate the narcissistic employee within your department and report their actions to HR and if HR will not help (and they most likely won't), get the Fair Work Ombudsman involved

    Pros

    Allergan is works to develop their people not only for their current role, but also future roles in the organization. They focus on how to be fully enegaged at home and work.

    Cons

    The only downside is that with so many talented indivduals and a small organization don't allow for quick movement up the career ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on how we can move within different divisions. Also keep integrating trainings on how to be fully engaged at work and home

    I have been working at Allergan

    Pros

    Very diversified business, which bodes well for the stock performance. Has significant investment in R&D that should lead to strong future growth (pharma and breast divisions). Very mellow place to work and is probably the most relaxed field sales environment that i have experienced in 12 years and three different medical device companies.

    Cons

    Allergan is still working to best integrate medical devices into its diverse portfolio. Need more diversity in that space but they have a few years experience in this sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stay diverse as it is a true advantage. Look to find ways to incorporate additional medical device experience in all functional areas.
