    Pros

    Benefits are great. Coworkers are bright and experienced. Flexible work hours are also a plus. Great international footprint as well.

    Cons

    There are constant changes in projects, processes etc. which makes it really difficult to work. A lot of work and time spent on relearning processes and adjust to new changes. Limited opportunity to be promoted.

    Pros

    Lots of great professional people in the organization

    Cons

    Very top down. We are all working for the upper management team not the front line people. No bother about those nice words they put there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the front line.! They are one who bring revenue to the company. Not those who sit high on the heaven.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment. Always something new. The pay is awesome, and benefits are top-notch for the industry. Great management. The ever-growing "growth pharma" model provides endless opportunities.

    Cons

    Change is a challenge for everyone, but it's the only constant - embrace it. There really aren't many "cons" as long as you're doing your job and trying to make money.

    I have been working at Allergan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company offers Good pay with good benefits. The products that we sell are great products and have very good formulary coverage.

    Cons

    Micro-Management has gotten out of hand. So much time is spent on reports for manager that don't impact sales and I doubt that my manager even reviews them. Terrible work-life balance!

    Advice to Management

    Please improve work-life balance. We need to have weekends off with our family and friends so we can be enthusiastic to sell products on Monday. Right now, time off is spent worrying about email to see if manager sent last minute email that's due 8am Monday. We need to be able to recharge!
