I have been working at Forest Labs

Pros

Its an OK place...depending on the department. Some departments allow you to grow and move into different areas while others do not.

Cons

Depending on the department, you are not "allowed" to move to other departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow your employees to move and grow in their career. This would be beneficial to them and your group as well. This would allow you to obtain new talent and fresh ideas while your former associate can grow into a new role within the company.

    Pros

    Strong cash position, staffing up, not downsizing yet

    Cons

    If you are your own man/woman look out. Micromanagement that is downright annoying. If you were not there at the beginning your experience will be second class. Duplicity and backstabbing are the rule in FRI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization is upside down, you hire experienced people from great companies, but ignore them regularly. I would not be able to encourage someone I respected to work here, unless they were looking for a shorter leash.
