Great company, terrible IT department and management

(Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsGreat company to work for, provide good benefits and healthcare options, work life balance is great. CO seems like they have a good pipeline

ConsIT department is a total wreck. Both CIO and IT Corporate SVP lack integrity, effectiveness and honesty. No transparency. Management spends unnecessary budget to get the same or higher budget following years. Give too much business to friends and relatives.
It is also disappointing to see multiple internal fraud instances over last few years in IT but the top management culprits are not held responsible.

Great company, CEO, CFO are extremely bright but If you want to work for Forest, avoid Informatics department by all means.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove CIO and SVP Corporate IT and directs. Appoint new CIO and IT management .Make the department better and there will be no negative impact to the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Informatics is a mess, Wake up Forest - Corruption

    IT INF (Current Employee) New York, NY

    I have been working at Forest Labs


    Pros: Good benefits Work Life benefits Some smart innovative people Cons: Unrealistic expectations, Infrastructure expects you to Work 24/7 Lots of Nepotism - family, past colleagues and friends get it all, esp. in Informatics Little… Advice to Senior Management: The problem is the CIO and his SVP, VPs . Never meet with IT staff and I am in IT… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
