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

    Pros

    Great customers. Good employees to work with. Good opportunity for advancement in first 5 to 8 years. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    No opportunity or respect for the seasoned sales representative. Work/life balance tilted too far to work side- not family friendly. Younger reps brought in at same rank and salary as older, proven reps. Young reps fast tracked to management on sales ability only, not management skills-two different skill sets.

    Advice to Management

    Watch turn over stats under managers-there is a reason. Be fair with resources and managed care in your more rural and disadvantaged territories, be on the side of your representatives, do not work against them (Mike Ball understood this principle) but work for them & with them. When a rep comes to you please listen: they could have gone to the FEDS instead of you- it will happen as people who try to "do the right thing" disappear from Allergan. Create something beyond SSE for those who serve you with their loyalty (no advacements available for field reps after 5 years-come on!). Treat your seasoned reps with more respect and dignity- they bring more to the table than you give them in return.

    I have been working at Allergan full-time

    Pros

    -The compensation and benefits are decent
    -The work load is acceptable
    -The projects are interesting
    -The location is pleasant

    Cons

    -Very hard to get a promotion if you're not friend with the right people in upper management
    -Because of this, some people end up in high level positions without having the competences and experience
    -This results in most people having given up on the idea of getting rewarded or recognized for their hard work

    Advice to Management

    Some things are pretty obvious by now as to where certain issues come from, so I will just say to management "Stop burying your head in the sand"
