    Pros

    Good pay, Excellent place to learn new technologies, Had a couple of great managers and a couple I could pass on.

    Cons

    Constant acquisitions lead to never ending implementations of new business entities. Constant reorganizations of departments though this seems to be the Pharmaceutical business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop looking for escape goats. Suck it up. You only think it makes you look bad.

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary for the work.

    Cons

    Sloppiness and the
    Mediocrity is prevalent at Teva. If you want to pass time for higher pay, spend some time and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nepotism is the name of Teva management, for the money they spent on salary and benefits they could get the best employees but upper management doesn't care about it.

    Pros

    This is a fast paced company where you are constantly busy so the days fly bye. Being a generic company the focus is always on short timelines and nimble strategies. The benefits are pretty good and the compensation is competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    Communication from management (at all levels) and interdepartmentally is lacking. Harmonization among the acquired companies is also lacking. Heavy focus on internal cost cutting and head count reduction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Harmonize procedures and decision making among all of the locations.

    Pros

    I loved my boss, loved my health benefits, and it was a short drive for me (15) minutes.

    Cons

    Constant sexual harassment by male co-workers, no way to move up from within the company. HR flat out lies to you when you get hired. Seriously they only hire their relatives and best friends for any decent jobs there. Micro managed to death in this place. Like I said I made it out alive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop ruining people's lives and picking any choosing who succeeds and who does't based on personal relations.

    Pros

    Great environment and benefits, relaxed atmosphere. Overall, a good place to work.

    Cons

    Incompetent people tend to be in higher positions, only certain chosen people get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees equal. Management and HR tend to do nothing but give you excuses if you ask about promotions.

    Great Benefits, Overall good company

    Cons

    Managemen have too much power, HR is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are not infalliable. But this is typical of Big Pharma Companies. Also, Teva and Big Pharma need to understand that the old ways of doing busines i.e. dinner programs for older products, are are waste of money and time for everybody involved.

    Pros

    Good benefits ... that's about it now.
    It used to be great all around, that was only a years ago...lots of changes took pleace with previous CEO...now it is hurting good people. Not sure about the current CEO, hope he will make right decisions.

    Cons

    work you to death, nights, weekends, and of course holidays. Overloaded work. No life and work balance at all. (It used to be great)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, your empoyees are getting burnt out. Stop playing with headcount!!!
    Teva used to be a great company, many of us have left and there are many to follow...
    Bring back great Teva culture!!!

    Pros

    Health Benefits; No Layoffs while I was there.

    Cons

    Management was horrendous, zero communication with them at all, no advancement from within the company. There was drug and alcohol abuse running rampant in the warehouse from higher management on down. Every time an employee brought up a problem to management their response was "Be lucky you have a job". There was also a lot of racism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with people when you hire them. Tell them that the job you come in with is the job you will leave with. And please for the love of God find it in your heart to stop destroying people's lives.
