    I worked at Warner Chilcott Limited as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing I can of think of.

    Cons

    Old mind setting in iT department in 21st Century. I would say very backward. Unprofessional IT department, No communications. Supervisor acts like fast food restaurant manager. Too many contractors with too much decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire IT managers with the latest mindset. Not jokers.

    Pros

    If you are good, you will make a ton of money and move up in the company quickly.
    Good benefits including free car, free gas, unlimited expenses to grow your market share(basically) and nice insurance package.

    Cons

    If you are bad, you will be fired very quickly. More often than not, management is a bit quick on the trigger as far as firing employees goes. (yes, I am still an employee)

    Pros

    If you have little experience in the pharmaceutical industry, this might be a place to get your foot in the door and get some experience.

    Cons

    Senior management creates an enviroment where employees are encouraged to turn on each other instead of working collaborately. Very little support for professional development. Sink or swim environment.

    I worked at Warner Chilcott Limited

    Pros

    I had a great drug to sell and hit bonus every trimester. Great opportunity to make money, great benefits and vacation etc. Management is okay....

    Cons

    I read on several boards before I took the job that they have the highest employee turnover in the industry but thought its just disgruntled employees, it couldn't possible be as bad as they say. I placed in the top 20% and hit bonus every trimester and still got layed off with one day notice right before Christmas along with a couple hundred other people. They require two dinners a week, no exceptions which was a little exhausting. When you work your butt off for a company you expect more respect than a one day notice (the day before payday, which means you don't get paid the next day because that will come a month later in your severence package...Merry Christmas!)

    I have been working at Warner Chilcott Limited

    Pros

    It gives you a chance to work in pharma with little to no experiene needed. There is a great oppertunity to make great money, if you willing to put in some long hours.

    Cons

    Un-realistic expectations, uncomfortable situations with doctors at dinner programs, micro managed, very unprofessional, stack ranked, lack of leadership, direction changes every trimester, I have yet to have 6 months in a row where I have been reporting into the same manager.... YOU have to QUALIFY to get the pay out you earn and its a moving target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on developing and maintaining talent, would be nice to have a consistent message to promote in offices. As a sales rep, you talk to others in the division and no one will have the same idea as to whats going on, communication could use some work.

    Pros

    -Great bonus potential if you are at the top
    -Decent salary
    -Nice car, free gas, great benefits
    -Left alone to do your job, managers stay out of your way unless of course you aren't performing

    Cons

    -Force ranking system needs work, you are constantly trying to beat yourself from the previous trimester. Also if you have negative growth with a product you receive no bonus even if you are at the top of the ranking report.
    -Bottom 30% receive no bonus no matter what
    -Middle of the line products, poor formulary coverage in many areas.
    -Required to do 2 medical education programs per week, little work/life balance.
