    I worked at Forest Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Forest provided a very in depth training program that helped you learn the products well. They were constantly looking at compensation policies and changing them to help you make more money and making sure they were as fair as possible. Great benefits, plenty of time off, plenty of sick days, company car, gas, cell phone, internet paid. A lot of new products and new products in the pipeline.

    Cons

    Some expectations were unrealistic. Policies were for the company as a whole and did not take into consideration how different the markets or different territories could be. Targets were assigned by a computer program or someone in an office who had no knowledge of the territory. Reporting seemed to always be delayed and not accurate as well.

    Pros

    At least the checks cleared and the health care benefits were ok.

    Cons

    Toxic management and culture. Complete lack of leadership. Lack of ethics and integrity. More focused on shareholder value than on the people making the place function.

    Advice to Management

    Drop dead!

    I worked at Forest Labs full-time

    Pros

    Forest labs took good care of its employees - benefits including pay, profit sharing, bonus etc and most importantly investment in the growth of employees by investing in training - both internal and seminar/specialized courses.

    Cons

    M&A posed typical challenges but it was managed reasonably well - but can always be improved.
