Mismatch between public face and private culture

Former Employee - Executive  in  London, England (UK)
Former Employee - Executive in London, England (UK)

Pros

Broad-based pharmaceutical company with opportunities in multiple professional and geographic areas. The range of the company - including human and animal health, prescription and OTC pharma, research as well as sales - provides good scope for lateral moves. The company is well represented in most countries, however expatriate assignments are not fostered.

Cons

Very significant disconnect between values espoused in public and the business culture actually in place. The company and Fred Hassan present a very attractive philosophy and vision, however in reality the company is very aggressive commercially with a lot of cynical attitudes among staff who must act in ways that are not reflected in the espoused culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow through with the espoused values.
