    Pros

    Income was great; stress was, too

    Cons

    Company comp plan forces employees to pay the company $$ back if they don't hit at least 85%
    Mob mentality in upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they are gone now with the Valeant purchase

    Pros

    This review is before the Valeant acquisition and will most likely not apply after. Great perks; yoga classes, game room, benefits, 401K/ profit sharing, and competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Very process heavy, regulatory and legal processes are extensive for all departments. Some higher up management are not good managers and would be best utilized in other areas. Certain departments do not recognize hard work; advancement opportunities come through being here a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reallocate manager positions to those that can and want to manage people.
