I worked at Allergan as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Great pay
Great work environment, always very helpful
Great co-workers

Cons

If you come to work everyday and do your job well, thats not enough. When I said there was corporate politics, you need to make friends with upper management to get heard. Some of the veterans do not not deserve to be there but since they have been there so long the newer, fresher candidates loose opportunities because they do not have seniority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should listen to their employee suggestions. Job hires should be based on job performance not how long you have been with the company.

    As a mid-cap pharma company, it's an excellent launching pad into the industry

    I have been working at Allergan

    Pros

    Flexibility, conservative casual dress albeit slightly more "business" than other company HQs in southern California. Pay, on average, is slightly less, though many positions will provide you with a broader range of experiences across different areas than large pharma, weather, clean and beautiful campus

    Cons

    Less exposure to the more expensive consulting firms, less services and benefits than large pharma, company gym

    I have been working at Allergan

    Pros

    Working at Allergan has many pros such as good healthcare insurance, nice Irvine campus, employee benefits such as discounted products.

    Cons

    A couple of downsides to working for any big company is the difficulty of getting promoted within the company. It is very hard to climb up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have more visibility to upper management and their decisions that may affect employees such as cutting down on healthcare benefits.
