Pros

Nice work-family balance. Nice benefits, clean environment, nice people, decent location, minimal micromanagement from the executive level.

Cons

SALARY!!!!! Clearly well-below average. Other than that, it would be career opportunity. They do not have a good career path for employees; therefore, we rarely retain good to excellent talent. It seems to be a "starting" place for many college graduates and then they move on. Executives seem "okay" with this concept.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay people what they deserve with respect to other jobs in the same market. We have a talented group of people and it would be wise to retain best talent as opposed to train and rehire, constantly!

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are excellent at Forest Labs. If you work hard you can make a lot of money as with any pharmaceutical job.

    Cons

    Success can depend on many factors such as territory, managed care and most important your manager. Your manager can make or break you at Forest Labs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more communication to the field in terms of future product pipeline. Limit territories to one or two representatives max.

    Pros

    FOrest has good pay and good benefits. The people really do care about the company and the management seems to aswell.

    Cons

    There is alot of politics and Forest seems to have a bad reputation among the sales force. Additionally, it is highly structured and you cannot advance redily before its time...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Keep it family friendly and keep the generous profit sharing plan in place. Also, keep the office nice!
