    I worked at Allergan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    More laid back than most other pharmaceutical companies. Supervisors listen to grievances and ideas.

    Cons

    Complaints department is atrociously small and understaffed, as a result responsibility are put onto others. Managers over supervisors give very little effort in maintaining quality Issues to QA department as well as packaging. Lower tier positions are expected to pull more weight yet receive very little in the way of compensation for their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your supervisors and operators and actually take action not just listen for the sake of theatrics.

    I have been working at Allergan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Allergan as a whole has a great culture and takes their responsibilities to patients seriously

    Cons

    The Austin site does not have much upward mobility. Great place to start a career, but nowhere to go once you are done with a call center job, unfortunate. Also, staffing is always an issue. There are never enough teammates to get the job done - makes it difficult and stressful for teams to do their best work.

    Advice to Management

    Management should focus less on making easy blanket policy changes and instead consider each group and business unit individually. Different markets have different needs and different 'personalities'. If you really want world-class customer service, then those unique needs must be attended to.

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, great facilities.

    Cons

    There are always a few bad apples. Hopefully one of them will not be your boss.

    Advice to Management

    Pay careful attention to leadership abilities of Director level personnel.
