I have been working at Allergan full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Stable company, solid revenue gains and stock performance. Difficult take over target do to corporate structure. Good products. Front line employees are only a few steps from top. David pyott is very accessible and personable with good business mind.

Cons

Botox accounts for to much corporate revenue. Corporate politics are terrible at with middle level management. Lots of big pharma drop outs that bring their negative politics and title first performance second mentality. General council, human resources have a negative strangle hold on company. Recruite to many second rate pharma executives. Business operations, IT, accounting are inefficient and use very cheap applications that reduce productivity.

Advice to Management

Hire the best, brightest, top performing people, pay them the best to retain them. Improve R&D new technology development in device units. Stop the branded generic strategy in pharma units. HR needs to get rid of arrogant middle management.

    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 Management

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