    I worked at King Pharmaceuticals (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    King was an excellent employer. I found it to be very forward looking and progressive in terms of advancing the organization, at least in the business unit where I was. I don't have any regrets or complaints.

    Cons

    I don't really have any big cons to report. I only wish the company were still around. It was a unique and enjoyable place to work.

    Advice to Management

    C-suite could have been more visible at times to the rest of the organization, but many execs were still very approachable.

    Very political, ceo had a personal adjenda to sell the company and get an outrageous severance package... he succeeded

    Officers should not be provided golden parachutes. If they can't or won't do their jobs, replace them without paying millions in severance packages to one person
