    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We were well compensated and had great benefits before Valeant took over. It typically was a great work environment before Sept. 2012. After the news of the Valeant acquisition, employee moral dropped significantly. The "real" Medicis died on 12/14/2012.

    Cons

    Late hours, lots of overtime, boys- club mentality. Many hoops to go through just to get something through the FAC process. The process was much more complicated than it needed to be.

    Pros

    Income was great; stress was, too

    Cons

    Company comp plan forces employees to pay the company $$ back if they don't hit at least 85% Mob mentality in upper management

    Advice to Management

    None, they are gone now with the Valeant purchase

    Pros

    Job growth was great, salary and bonuses were great too. Manager was competent and fun to work with. Creativity was encouraged and my ideas were taken seriously. Flexible work environment and great culture. The people were phenomenal and competent in their job skills and level. Employee training and support were superb.

    Cons

    It was sold to another pharmaceutical company and all of the great aspects of the company went away.

    Advice to Management

    It's too bad the company was sold, I enjoyed my time very much.
