    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.

    I worked at Actavis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and holiday schedule.
    Schedule is flexible.
    Medical and Dental Benefits exceed other companies.
    Great 401k and savings plan. Variety of insurance plans available.

    Cons

    Inequality between salaries at the same level. New hires with experience tend to make more than senior employees that have worked there for years. There is no appreciation for employees with a long history with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve.

    I have been working at Actavis as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company as a whole seems to have it together, they are organized and have a great internship program. As an intern they want you to learn and grow so they give you projects that matter to someone other than your boss. They also have monthly lunches to teach you about presenting, networking, etc. and a bowling pizza party at the end, with your supervisor

    Cons

    While the projects do matter, they can get a little boring when you have to correct or modify any of the standard operating procedures, but that comes with any company that is being regulated by the FDA and the DEA. Also, the first shift employees seemed to be a little less happy than the second shift (weekend). It can be assumed that they felt a little micro managed, which can drag on people over time.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't see any employee appreciation while I was there, unless you count giving out gift cards for implementing new safety ideas. I think more regular recognition for a job well done would boost morale.
