I have been working at Allergan

Pros

- Interesting, diverse, fast moving projects
- Opportunities to grow and learn
- Great campus and overall location
- Decent compensation

Cons

- Some in senior management roles are out of touch
- Some people in key decision making roles seem to be there because they have paid their dues and not necessarily because they are the best fit for the current company culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the dead weight. It is demoralizing to see people who are openly negative and poor performers continue to do OK while you are working hard to meet company goals.

    Pros

    Allergan supports work/life balanace, senior management communicates to subordinates very well; benefits are withing industry standard.

    Cons

    Allergan's senior management communicate well to employees. Unfortunately when senior level management leaves the company, incoming management replaces or find the reason to get rid of employees who have been working in the department for a long time. I am not sure if it is compensation related, but senior level employees provide stability and value added knowledge to the company. On the other hand, a new chief would rather bring his/her own soldiers to make sure that he/she does not get stabbed at the back.
    The company is very political to the extent that the branding of Allergan being one of the best company to work for becomes qualified, that is, you are happy only if you are not affected by the politics.
    The emphasis on the business bottom line has made R&D and Sales as the only departments that are worthwhile to be funded. All other departments are not important. The company can get by by outsourcing or hiring temporary employees, creating a feeling of uncertainty to the not-so-important employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should commit to providing the best working environment by balancing life, work advancement, and the business. Lately, much emphasis has been on the business side, creating a feeling of uncertainty amongst its employees.

    Pros

    They have a great benefits plan! They're also employee oriented and host Christmas parties, special events, pot luck lunches, and other events for employees and their families. Many on-site amenities.

    Cons

    There is little to no room for growth or advancement. High amount of micro-managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more acocuntable for your actions. Also, be more supportive of your team and back them when needs be. Promote more from within the company to boost morale and increase retention.
