    Pros

    CEO plays the piano beautifully

    Hard to get decisions made

    try to moderate compliance oversight of every little thing -- you have more investigations underway than the FBI on some days

    I have been working at Jazz Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some nice people. Could have a work and life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management is not well deserved the high position which causing many incompetent people in the company. Communication is not transparent. The company vibes/energy is not right. It's not a lively and open environment. I know a lot of people don't have enough work to do wheres some are constantly overloaded.

    Advice to Management

    Remove some bad seeds. If you don't it will impact whole company's performance and productivity. Retain the right talent.

    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!

    Pros

    Great Executive Team with proven ability to raise needed capital

    Cons

    Almost bet the ranch on extended release Luvox and expanded the sales team on unrealistic assumptions leading to a NPV that was at least a full order of magnitude higher than reality. Better performance after those missteps.

    Pros

    Jazz has a good mission, is growing, has good benefits and is overall an OK company to work for.

    Cons

    There is a lack of leadership in IT that means it is always running behind the business rather than being in front of it. The company is struggling with how to work globally which means lots of early mornings leading to long days.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CIO

    I have been working at Jazz Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's a very good culture which permeates from the top down. Each team I've been on has had great team spirit.

    Cons

    There is a flat organisational structure which can made it hard to progress within the company. Some teams are under staffed resulting in much longer working hours compared to other teams.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on performance not on length of service.

    Pros

    Interesting products, great benefits, very smart colleagues
    The company has products that do help patients and that's the best part about coming to work.

    Cons

    Highly political, very much who you know and not based on merit
    Tough environment that is overshadowed by lots of factions and power dynamics. Managers are unsupportive and have no problems throwing their staff under the bus both overtly and covertly.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a better and more supportive culture where collaboration is the focus. Stop monitoring your staff and allow flexibility in schedules. Also offer more growth opportunities and punish those who aren't competent in their work instead of rewarding them with more headcount.
