    I have been working at IPSEN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively new employee and love working here. Management change has been good - new leader has set a very positive culture, has hired a strong team and has improved company performance. Overall, great work life balance and entrepreneurial feel at the US affiliate. Strong compensation and good benefits. High visibility to management. Nice to be part a growing company with good people. Would recommend to top performers who want to make a difference.

    Cons

    Amount of work outpacing human resources due to company's rapid growth (rarely "downtime" in workload). While US affiliate is functioning well, there is a disconnect with global in terms of priorities and culture. Finally, company outlook is good for the next few years but unclear after that.

    Advice to Management

    Invest heavily in the US affiliate that is driving your business. Need more assets in the US to drive future growth and retain best people.

    Director Internal Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Telephone, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IPSEN (Telephone, TX).

    Interview

    The US based recruiter was very professional and knowledgable. The interview with the head of internal audit based out of the U.K. was also professional and I felt she would be a pleasure to work for...it wasn't until I was scheduled to interview with the counterparts in the European region that all hell broke lose...just a lose cannon, unprofessional, with poor command of the English language....the interview with her was comprised of being asked detailed questions on how to get information from SAP (what screens one goes to to get preinfo data to conduct an audit in COGS!!!! It felt like this was an entry level position. I have 20+ years of experience and have done this at much larger pharma companies but have never been asked entry level, specific questions. My advice to anyone interested for this role, don't do it!!!

    Interview Questions

    • If you were to audit COGS what risks would you be looking for, what preinfo would you request, HOW would you get this data from SAP....providing menu paths, t codes etc...   1 Answer
