I worked at VIVUS

Pros

Slow paced, quality driven work environment that allowed anyone to halt production if quality problems were noticed. Management recognized that employees needed time for personal reasons and were happy to work with vacation/personal time on short notice.

Cons

The management at VIVUS was unresponsive to suggestions for improvement. Management was content to keep the status quo with no drive to modify or improve any function, afraid to make any mistake. This attitude resulted in the sale of the NJ manufacturing plant to another company, Upper management has not managed to bring any new product to market since the introduction of its lone ED product, Muse, over 12 years ago. Alibra, Qnexa, Evamist, and one or two other products never made it to market under the guidance of VIVUS management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would have been nice if the employees at the Lakewood facility were suported and made to feel like they were actually part of the company. Senior management did not even visit the NJ plant for over six years and basically pretended that it did not exist.
