    I have been working at Watson Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary; several dedicated employees who are admirable

    Cons

    Constant downsizing, unstable environment, most higher level positions are recruited from outside, giving employees little or no career opportunity within the company; company is too spread out geographically, which hampers the already poor communications. Company is getting too big without putting real working systems in place, and many leaders are arrogant and selfish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of integrating departments when acquisitions are made, rather than letting the new sites conduct "business as usual". This creates communication problems, resentment, and insurmountable issues when trying to implement new systems across the entire organization.

    I have been working at Watson Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One who work here for more than 4 years, will earn Good Corporate knowledge rather than technical knowledge.

    Cons

    Totally uneven work load. Pathetic working culture.
    - Mainly, Most of the employees are interested in exchanging emails and highlighting problems instead of working on solutions.
    - Working at the plant level ( all the plants ) is highly difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No use of advise since they wont listen to you .

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
