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

Pros

We were well compensated and had great benefits before Valeant took over. It typically was a great work environment before Sept. 2012. After the news of the Valeant acquisition, employee moral dropped significantly. The "real" Medicis died on 12/14/2012.

Cons

Late hours, lots of overtime, boys- club mentality. Many hoops to go through just to get something through the FAC process. The process was much more complicated than it needed to be.

    I have been working at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This review is before the Valeant acquisition and will most likely not apply after. Great perks; yoga classes, game room, benefits, 401K/ profit sharing, and competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Very process heavy, regulatory and legal processes are extensive for all departments. Some higher up management are not good managers and would be best utilized in other areas. Certain departments do not recognize hard work; advancement opportunities come through being here a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Reallocate manager positions to those that can and want to manage people.
