I worked at Allergan as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Great pay
Great work environment, always very helpful
Great co-workers

Cons

If you come to work everyday and do your job well, thats not enough. When I said there was corporate politics, you need to make friends with upper management to get heard. Some of the veterans do not not deserve to be there but since they have been there so long the newer, fresher candidates loose opportunities because they do not have seniority.

Advice to Management

They should listen to their employee suggestions. Job hires should be based on job performance not how long you have been with the company.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great team work, support from management, and drive for success. I enjoyed the learning opportunities and left the company with a wealth of knowledge.

    Cons

    Senior management changed direction frequently and sometimes made questionable decisions. I was never really sure what the top 2 managers contributed.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of initiatives you implement that will greatly benefit your competitors. They are always watching us and tend to take credit for what we do.


  2. "Friendly and challenging"
