        Doesn't Recommend

        I worked at Allergan full-time

        Pros

        It was good before the surprise lay-off. I had a great manager and coworkers.

        Cons

        Who does surprise layoffs? It was pretty brutal. They had two rounds in one year in my division which released half the salesforce. I’ve heard it’s never been the same.
