    I have been working at Allergan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Allergan General Medicine side is OK- really depends on your manager. Lot of non-productive tasks (trackers, reports, etc). Good for someone cutting their teeth in Pharm. Salaries are lower than industry avg (even for more experienced reps. On the Botox side things are a lot different. Great culture, perks, let you run your business without constantly checking metrics, etc.- more like a company within a company. Being bought by Abbvie in another month or so- so Gen Med side may be changing (hopefully for the better, Overall I would recommend working here.

    Cons

    Lower salaries, micromanaging (checking boxes, etc) on Gen Med side (a lot of that depends on manager). Abbvie buy out may impact Gen Med side.
