    A good company with poor department managment at the local, site, level

    Associate Scientist II (Current Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsTeva is a great company in the Pharmaceutical industry. As a global leader in the generic market Teva is a front runner in the drive to make medicines, some of which are life saving, more affordable. Knowing that your job is helping to save lives and help people get access to the medications they need is very rewarding. Teva also has an excellent benefits package.

    ConsTeva, Irvine has been mismanaged. The research and development department specifically suffors from poor overbullying underappreciating negative-feedback type managment at the upper levels. Some supervisors are excellent but are hindered by the inept leadership in upper managment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGlobal managment and decision making is above my level so I am not qualified to applaud or critique it. I feel that the upper level managment of the Irvine site has been very poor over the past few years, especially within the research and development department.

    Teva is a great company to learn about the pharmaceutical industry.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Horsham, PA

    Prosexcellent benefits
    friendly environment
    professional growth encouraged
    flexible when emergencies arise
    outstanding senior management
    very open to suggestions/ideas on how to improve efficiencies

    ConsChange is so rapid here that at times you feel like if you blink you will be behind the eight-ball.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees suggestions on how to be more productive rather than just automatically assuming that the only way to do this is by eliminating additional employees. Remember, you hired these people because of their education, experience and background. Why not let them show you how they got where they are?

    Teva Pharmaceuticals

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sellersville, PA

    ProsTeva has a great benefits plan and is people oriented. There is a good life/work balance that allows the employee to prosper both personally and professionally.

    ConsThe organization is dysfuntionally structured with major departmental silos that make it difficult to work or improve cross-funtionally. The growth of the company has outpaced the growth of many of the managers abilities to support the company but there is no program in place to address this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake accountability for the people and processes and actively manage and support your areas. Stop relying on the methods that used to work when Teva was significantly smaller, and start managing and supporting change that helps the company be successful now.

    Decent place to make fairly good coin

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYour manager will make or break your experience with Teva. There are some good ones and some nut jobs. It is not huge mega pharma.

    ConsThere have been times that sales support has been lacking. A few of the managers are nut jobs. The products are not exactly exciting blockbusters.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the managers should have been screened a little better for personality defects. There should be more management training for lower level and new managers.
