Good depending on who you know. Just OK otherwise.

I have been working at Forest Labs

Pros

People are smart, at the lower levels at least. Can't speak for upper management.

People are also hard-working and collaborative.

Cons

Rampant micromanagers every where. Sink or swim mentality, and it is difficult to push innovative marketing tactics through the approval process. Analysis paralysis. Not into risk taking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to embrace the changing market environment, and get with the times! Stop being such stick in the muds, please!

    I worked at Forest Labs

    Pros

    good start in the industry but not a high paying position relative to others....very much a hunter sales position

    Cons

    lack of work life balance, lots of travel, lots of red tape and bs....bottom line is the only line and they are not a real pharmaceutical company, rather they license other compunds and promote them effective business strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote reps simply because they do well in sales. Being able to manage a team of reps and being a good rep are 2 different issues
