Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Corona, CA

I have been working at Watson Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Very good 401K plan and reasonably good benefits in general.

Cons

Culture of bullying, finger-pointing and punishment, highly political environment, employees discouraged from challenging status quo, opaque review process, silo mentality and culture, us vs. them attitude with quality vs. manufacturing (quality vs. quantity), culture to "release everything" and rush everything through at all costs, focus on petty issues instead of big picture, blatant favoritism (good ole boys club type environment) exhibited within certain groups by management, weak site HR, no systems to protect and fairly evaluate strong individual contributors who are not "popular" with management, long history of regulatory compliance issues, lack of clear standards for promotions or personal development, unfair work distribution, history of unqualified or insufficiently qualified personnel and management, poor communication, no leadership training (and it shows), lack of professionalism by many site managers, no 360 reviews for management despite repeated requests by employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read the cons.

    I have been working at Watson Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has good general benefits, active in March of Dimes charity

    Cons

    new CEO has brought a morale that makes 'lower' level positions feel as though their contribution is not worthy of recognition. Former CEO and upper management geniuely cared for ALL employees. This new regime lost that.
