    I worked at ALZA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for Alza right when Johnson & Johnson acquired it in 2001. It was good if you had stock options that were vested.

    Cons

    The acquisition by a pharmaceutical giant eventually led to moving many of the lines produced in our plants in the US to Puerto Rico for cost savings. Things got more complicated for daily operations by merging our operating procedures with J&J's procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Although there are significant tax and operation savings by moving production off shore, the product quality seems to suffer when it's done with certain product technologies.
