If you don't care for politics, then don't work for this company

I worked at Depomed

Pros-people at the bench level are pleasant to work with.
-people at the lower level are technical and knowledgable

Cons-collusion between people in upper management designed to undermine others efforts;

-lack of accountability, responsibility by upper management "Lead by Consensus" philosophy;

-decision making is done by consensus. If you disagree with the consensus (2-3 people in upper management) you are labeled a "problem";

-management approach is to take the shortest, highest risk route rather than the "right" approach. Often make decisions predicated on time lines rather than "correct/industry standard"" or "ethical" approach;

--promotions through Nepotism

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster a culture of diversity in opinion & experience rather than going with the corporate "Bobble Heads"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
