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

    Pros

    A quiet place to work.

    Cons

    Recent staff cut backs in some departments have lead to overworked and very irate employees. Current employee positions are almost never replaced.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good compensation, good products, very effective CEO. The company really knows what it is good at and is able to capitalize on those products or systems. Growth will be rewarded, non growers will be cut (see Lap-Band and the IOL franchises). Always looking for the next big idea.

    Cons

    Silos can exist, middle management not empowered to the level they should be, very US focused in the Device area. Working in SB and Irvine can be difficult if you have a shared role or report to the other location.

    Advice to Management

    Expand globally faster with all product lines
