I worked at IPSEN as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart people, lively energy. I worked for Ipsen as a contractor for several years and they treated me very well. For such a large company, they were very flexible in their policies and procedures. They generally made good business decisions that worked toward the betterment of their staff.

Cons

Perhaps too many miscellaneous positions leading to a large, top-heavy organization. There were many people at the Director and VP levels who were in charge of tiny, niche areas in the company. If you didn't know exactly who was running the tiny area you needed access to, you were kinda out of luck. And it could take you a week to figure out who WAS in charge of that tiny niche area.

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Inept senior management. No understanding of the speciality market and refusal to listen to the field. Management tries to rule by intimidation.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your experiences people.

    I worked at IPSEN full-time

    Pros

    Well paid; worked with a great group of people (the majority of which were from the previous company that Ipsen bought out).

    Cons

    French headquarters wanted to call all the shots, even thought they did not know the US culture/market. They were very bureaucratic and countless of committees that took ages to make decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the local people that know the way things are done in the US!
