I worked at Forest Labs full-time

Pros

They had a technical 35 hour work week; although many worked more than that. Also in the summer they had half day fridays; you worked a little long monday to thursday but had a longer weekend.

Cons

The culture is changing they dont come across as caring about their people as they used to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A lot of people talk make it seem like they like you but then talk bad behind your back. Be aware of under the surface concerns.

    Pros

    Good location with nice views. Great benefits and perks. Salary is decent as well although stock options not performing.

    Cons

    Informatics senior executives do not really listen and do not manage their staff due to lack of professionalism and it is reflected on everyone downstream several levels below.

    only in it for themselves and managing up by putting on a different face so to look good is not a very good way to run IT. Staff productivity, morale, motivation and attitudes are really poor across all Informatics areas due to extraordinarily bad management. Unnecessary stress, politics and pressure.

    It is true that most of the folks in senior roles are in some shape or form "connected" to CIO and SVP and hired from outside - clear sign that there is no internal staff development to move up. Forest has a lot of good talent that is not being utilized effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appoint new SVP Corporate Informatics and direct reports.
