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

Pros

Great way to get your foot in the door. Bonus payouts are high.

Cons

Company is only concerned with growth. If you are not consistently growing the business, they fire you. I started in Oct. 2011, by Dec. 2012 only 1 person from my 12 person training class is left. They are happy to replace you. DMs often suggest questionable ethical/legal practices.

Advice to Management

Take more pride in your employees. Don't get rid of someone just because they had one bad trimester. Appreciate the relationships your reps have built. Invest in training those who are struggling. Don't always blame the rep first...could it be the DM? Could it be a territory specific issue? Do you really think a $125 per person dinner is going to earn you the business? Don't punish reps for not meeting the ridiculous amount of "medical education" events. Perhaps those providers have families and would rather spend their time with them.

    I worked at Actavis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Workforce good, knowledgeable and responsive. The Company has many long term employees who are not of the 'we've tried that before' kind but need positive leadership and involvement.

    Cons

    The management from the top down has a bullying, threatening management style, particularly the female senior managers. Finance, HR, Business Admin all show this and good loyal employees have given up trying in response.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying learn to manage.
    Try involvement, encouragement, participation.
