    StarStarStarStarStar Former Senior Clinical Research Associate in Houston, Texas

    The benefits package at Forest was extraordinary and generous with 401K contributions, paid health insurance, dental and vision insurance, 2 weeks vacation per year immediately and one week additionally every so many years (don't recall exactly how this was distributed). Paid Life insurance for the amount of your annual salary.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Saint Louis, Missouri

    Health insurance was very competitive.

  • Nov 03, 2014
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Specialty Pharmaceutical Sales Rep in West Seattle, Washington State

    Low starting salary non negotiable. Managers all have a different performance evaluation scale. Some very bad reps (Not working, cheating on tests, terrible sales people) had higher evaluation scores than other good reps due to subjective view by manager. Evaluations and manager bias play a huge part in yearly raise, stock options, etc.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Saint Louis, Missouri

    The Company has a great benefit plan, lower than any other person I've talked to. You also get 2 weeks of vacation starting out and increased to 3 weeks after 2-3 years with the Company and so on. The Company will be changing benefit plans as the company was acquired by Actavis. What we have seen the benefits will be just as good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Jersey City, New Jersey

    401 K had a match of 50% up-to a max contribution of 6% (Note this may have changed after the merger). The medical plan is adequate.Salary meets the industry bench mark so no complaints.

    Profit sharing, but that ended.

  • Aug 11, 2014
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Saint Louis, Missouri

    Great benefits package prior to Brent Saunders and the termination of over 500 jobs, company wide. And now the St. Louis facility is being closed.
