I worked at Forest Labs

Pros

Colleagues told me that Forest had an excellent Work/Life balance compared to other pharma companies. Solid leadership at the top, good benefits package. Opportunities to learn, encouraged to attend at least one conference/training session per year.

Cons

Inefficient operations, redundant depts and too many middle managers even after reorganization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company is doing well but that may be contributing to inefficiencies. It's time to cut the fat from operations and merge document/regulatory functions.

    Pros

    for an entry level position in and around NY borough, Forest Lab provides good enough foundation for later on endeavors

    Cons

    Nepotism, Favoritism, incompenet and cluless managment, unfair evaluation, salary raise in below satisfactory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have competent managment who know there stuff, stop hiring third grade level scientist from India and China. Major overhall in the R&D section from top to bottom.
