I worked at Allergan full-time (More than 10 years)
Good compensation, comfortable office environment, flexible scheduling and optional remote working in some situations, excellent benefits and vacation packages. Overall, the best place I have ever worked.
Changing demands of the pharmaceutical market can make some departments and positions more volatile as outsourcing becomes more cost effective.
Advice to Management
Maintain a strong connection between U.S. East and West Coast operations.
I applied online. I interviewed at Allergan (Covington, LA) in May 2015.
3 separate interviews, 2 with hiring manager and 1 with regional manager, first interview was mainly to see if the hiring manager and I would get along, the second interview consisted of behavioral interview questions and a role play, final interview was going over experience and why I wanted the job
