    I worked at Allergan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Outgoing CEO made sure employees were treated fairly. The managed care organization had worked very well up to the point of the merger.

    Cons

    Challenges were related to being in a hostile take over environment and then large merger situation. This was a year of transitions and loss of good people post merger.
