Work atmosphere and schedule are great, but scheduled promotions limit career advancement

Current Employee - Business Process Analyst in Irvine, CA
Current Employee - Business Process Analyst in Irvine, CA

I have been working at Allergan full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Work life balance
- Flexible work schedules
- Campus accommodations (soccer field, baseball field, tennis courts, gym)
- Growth opportunities outside of normal job description

Cons

- Promotion opportunities are limited to once per year, company wide. If you don't get promoted then, you have to wait an entire year for the next opportunity. This makes employees severely discouraged about their career advancement opportunities if you don't want to wait an entire year just to be considered again.

- I've heard starting salaries are generally mid-range to mid-high, but after you're in, salary increases are very minimal

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't have promotions based on a schedule. It's incredibly demoralizing to employees.

    Former Employee - Systems Coordinator in Irvine, CA

    I worked at Allergan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Allergan is a solid company that offers a good benefit plan, as well as potential for bonuses for all levels. They treat their employees well and communicate thoroughly.

    Cons

    The company struggles to stay "flat" and there for leaves no room for development and growth. This goes for all levels of positions. It is a good transition job, but they do not hire within as much as they like to claim. Management does not seem to care about retaining talent in this way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend reviewing your current development strategies as well as creating a more work-life balanced environment following market-place trends.
