    Compensation and benefits are competitive.

    Company is in transition as a result of acquisitions made over past few years. Stressful environment and long hours. Senior management does not value or recognize the efforts of their staffs.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive

    Cons

    Actavis is going through constant mergers and acquisitions. With that comes job insecurity as jobs are duplicated. The new IT management established a year ago, does not believe in personal time or work / family separation, and manages with threats. Actavis does not allow working from home and do not foresee the company allowing it for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Employees need personal and family time.


  7. Very good company

    Pros

    Still a smaller company playing in a big branded pharmaceutical space that gives you some autonomy.

    Cons

    Unrealistic goals that do not take into account the lack of coverage by major plans and higher copay than competitors.

    Advice to Management

    West coast competitive landscape is completely different than Midwest and goals should reflect the difficulties of the marketplace.
