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

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, direct management very supportive and encouraging, great work/life balance, very nice severance package with the 2009 layoff (which I was hit with, but kept on through all of 2009).

    Cons

    Upper management separated itself by moving executive offices to NJ which did not allow for much face-to-face time at the HQ offices located in Bristol, TN. This caused upper management (executive level) to be out of touch with the employees at HQ and created communication barriers.
