    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.

    No opinion of CEO
