    I worked at Forest Labs full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, there was also a large amount of paid time off. The products for the most part were great drugs.

    Cons

    The culture was sometimes rooted in fear, the Reps were not respected for their efforts unless the numbers were good.

    Advice to Management

    The couture was amazing about 10 years ago, it would be beneficial to try and get back to that. A lot of good people left. Those of you who are left should try and maintain as much of the original culture. Not sure how to do that being that the company has been bought several times now.

    I worked at Forest Labs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Family Oriented Company, Promoted from within, Great work environment, provided training, great benefits, good work/life balance

    Cons

    Company was sold off and moved to NJ. I was not happy with the company that was sold off to. Once the new CEO took over, the company took a downhill turn.

    Advice to Management

    This is no longer applicable since the company no longer exists. Once the new CEO took over, the company took a downhill turn.
