I have been working at Allergan

Pros

very professional coworkers, ability to partner with customers and a high level satisfaction in beneifts of my product and what it can do for patients.

Cons

We are beginning to loose the small company feel, limited professional growth opportunites, limited opportunity for advancement and very poor support from HR.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please wake up and show some appreciation for longer term employees. The rush to be more like big Pharma is very unsettleing.

    I have been working at Allergan

    Pros

    The benefits are comparable to other companies of the same size.
    The pay is low, but Allergan is a good starting point into the pharma industry. A great place to learn and move on.
    The company seems financially stable and conservative.

    Cons

    Nepotism within some of the facilities is rampant.
    Don't expect to work your way to a promotion.
    Little to no recognition is given for a job well done.
    "Bonuses" are very small compared to other companies of similar size unless you are at a directors level or above.
    No flextime is offered.
    Use of sick time is forbidden.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more competitive pay and bonuses.
    Better recognition opportunities to the hourly employees would help retain talent.
    Stop allowing relatives to work within the same facility.
    Promote more from within the company.
