    King Pharma was a fantastic employer!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexibility in work schedules, great benefits, good wages, wonderful coworkers

    ConsVery political, ceo had a personal adjenda to sell the company and get an outrageous severance package... he succeeded

    Advice to Senior ManagementOfficers should not be provided golden parachutes. If they can't or won't do their jobs, replace them without paying millions in severance packages to one person

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
