Pros

Congenial environment, managment is up front and honest about future plans.

Cons

Pay and benefits are very slightly lower than other leading pharmas.... but only slightly. Location in Jersey City seems to be mostly a down side but of course it depends are your specific needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Standards are designed and implemented but not always followed.completely.. not always clear to all levels of staff.

    Pros

    Very nice office environment, good location, some managers value opinions from all levels (including below their own). Good benefit package. Ability to move up in many groups.

    Cons

    I hear that pay is low compared to others. Have seen others reach the top in their group and then leave. Some managers aren't good leaders. Management is often not transparent about the plans and goals for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure managers have management experience or are trained to be good managers.

    Pros

    Colleagues told me that Forest had an excellent Work/Life balance compared to other pharma companies. Solid leadership at the top, good benefits package. Opportunities to learn, encouraged to attend at least one conference/training session per year.

    Cons

    Inefficient operations, redundant depts and too many middle managers even after reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is doing well but that may be contributing to inefficiencies. It's time to cut the fat from operations and merge document/regulatory functions.
