    I have been working at Jazz Pharmaceuticals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working Jazz for a few months now and find that what you are told by the recruiters is accurate - the place is a good place to work, salary and other comp is really good and benefits are of a high quality. More importantly, people are friendly and truly want to know what you think regardless of your level.

    Cons

    I have not seen any issues so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Jazz Pharmaceuticals (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company really wants to listen to what the employees have to say! They try to implement change based on feedback. Managers are down to earth, employees are friendly. We work hard and play hard! The compensation is great! Benefits, stock options, vacation etc are the best Ive ever seen.

    Cons

    Some negativity amongst the employees, but that comes with any company you work for.
    Annual bonuses are "so so"
    Departments are too segregated.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great! Continue to listen to us and send out those feedback questionnaires more often!
    Give back a little more to the employees in way of bonuses or stocks!

    Pros

    Good people to work with and for.

    Cons

    None really. The company is doing more in the EU and that could be a pinch depending on what you do at Jazz.

    Advice to Management

    Try to do more here on the home ground.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good people, management actually seems to care about employees and about patients, good incentives, opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Certain areas of the organization seem to have a lot of fluff/people who aren't doing much. Others are so busy they can't see straight. Growing quickly and there isn't necessarily proper distribution of head count between groups.

    Advice to Management

    Invest deeper in analytical infrastructure to rely less on contractors. Decrease the number of meetings under the banner of "everyone needing to collaborate" which at times make it impossible for people to get done real work. That said, overall it's an amazing place to work.

    Pros

    Great small company that has that warm family feel. Your voice is heard and management treats you like the professional that you are.

    Cons

    Because the company is a publically traded, the stakeholders can make the decision at any point to dissolve the division.

    I worked at Jazz Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the opportunity to grow my territory with the encouragement of my DSM. The company was responsive to my suggestions in a difficult, technical field. I appreciated the clinical excellence and the selling support too. The best part? The patient focus that drove every call every day. What a relief to focus on helping people to get better!

    Cons

    The last year I was with the company it became more concerned with call numbers rather than effective calls. The sales results were not coordinating with the new emphasis but the company still seemed to direct their efforts away from what had worked before in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Drive to meet the needs of patients through excellent education, support and expansion of the base patient understanding of products. Let the Reps run!
