    I worked at Forest Labs

    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!

    Some micromanaging

    Lots of politics that came to the forefront quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good to treat all employees the same, the assistants are your backbone and should be treated that way.
