    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Forest Labs has great products, a stellar team, a bevy of new compounds coming to market in important categories where pay, benefits and career growth is possible for serious, dedicated team workers.

    Cons

    The company is undergoing great strains as it moves to a mature pharmaceutical company in a difficult market for sales at historical profitable levels. There will be a lot of turmoil in the next few years due to patent expiry in important products

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to better communicate with employees and the public about strategy, position the business is taking, and change in the marketplace as it pertains to the business.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    IT 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 Management

    Remove 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.
