    Pros

    nice holiday party and picnic
    work from home is convenient

    Cons

    Leadership in Informatics Business Operations is just awful. VP was written up for behavioral issues on more than one occasion. She now has a coach and it has become comical to watch. Staff retention is terrible.

    Everyone is silenced through threats and intimidation so now no one speaks up anymore and most of the staff who are competitive are looking for new jobs. Way to go!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the VP everyone knows she is a train wreck.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    The focus is placed all on the MDs - employees feel like second class citizens

    Pros

    Job security - 6 new products in 3 years says a lot - this can be a good place for new college grads looking to get into pharma sales - no one with experience comes to Forest

    Cons

    micro managaed not necessarily by manager but by daily activity expectations - 10-12 calls per day; 80% signatures, 80% top ranked targets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    undo these call per day averages and focus on the quality of the calls which really make impact and drive sales - it's the classic work smarter not harder mentality that needs to be implemented
