    I worked at Allergan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not as many sales reps calling on one physician. Small sales force.

    Cons

    Good old boys club. No management turnover - same old decisions being made, no new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people from outside the company in management roles especially director roles. Keep challenging directors to change roles within the organization - and improve your management development program. The idea of letting sales reps with no management experience take on roles to manage people is bad practice.

    I worked at Allergan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the old Allergan people are still around. Only pro right now.

    Cons

    The new leadership in Austin Tx took over in 2015. Since then the site has gone downhill considerably. The individual lacks integrity and honesty. Good luck working for liars. They hire externally instead of promote from within. The managers left are a joke and the director's lackeys.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the director. Stop killing the morale. Keep the managers who actually care about people. Stop putting people with poor ethics in charge. Other places pay as much if not more than Allergan. If you are looking for a job, then go somewhere else.
