    Good hard working people. Management tends to operate based on fear.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Nice people. Development opportunities available. Hard work recognized. Team oriented. Strive to acquire top talent in most fields.

    Cons

    Consultants advice taken as gospel. Desire to save money causes harried workers. Quality suffers. Acquisitions of overrated and overpriced drugs. Failure to innovate. Value for shareholders overshadows value for patients.

    Advice to Management

    Greed and questionable decisions eventually have consequences.


  2. It's easy to work here because the pay is better than average and the work isn't straining.

    I have been working at Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers! Decent pay. Flexible schedule for most employees. They are always feeding you and have an on site gym.

    Cons

    No opportunity to develop your career due to organizational structure. Crossing the new bridge becomes frustrating. The traffic is difficult to predict. Favoritism at its work.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You are not going to be there forever. Start developing your staff!

    I have been working at Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers, networking opportunities, location, campus.

    Cons

    Unstable as the company transitions to a high-performance culture. Hundreds losing jobs. Some of the best and brightest leaving and being laid off as long-timers and cliques remain intact.

    Advice to Management

    This company has always had a hard time attracting talent. Hand pick the one's who should stay during lay-offs and offer them development opportunities.

    Pros

    Pay is fair and benefits are great. Good deal of autonomy. Bonus potential is decent if you have a high volume territory.

    Cons

    Too many changes in the last 6 months. Just had a mass layoff. Future is uncertain, but it looks as if management is concerned.

    Advice to Management

    We need more incentives to keep the reps happy. Avoid turnover by being more transparent. Adding an additional product or two will greatly help.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are ok. Can't think of anything good to say about company.

    Upper management ruining the company. They are losing many good employees. Happy to take my severance pay and move on to a better company!

    Advice to Management

    Think about what the hell you are doing and about other employees for once. Mark Trudeau had destroyed this company!!

    Pros

    We are a newly acquired company of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Have not worked long enough to know many pros. What can be said is they are maintaining our current pay structure and insurance offerings.

    Cons

    My position is being eliminated due to my being a synergy.
