    Pros

    Compensation is great if you're performing.
    Great ability to pursue additional career options.

    Cons

    Compliance is a bear---harrowing and mandating everything.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the sales force to do its job.

    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is growing rapidly, which translates into opportunities for you to work on special projects that support business growth initiatives.

    Cons

    Company generally hires seasoned professional. It's a little more difficult to get into the door if you are just out of college.

    I have been working at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I think the IT department has been a cohesive backbone for this company and that was because we brought our desk up to ITIL standards

    Cons

    I cannot think anything negative to say about this company. Our team comes in and gets the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within

    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We were well compensated and had great benefits before Valeant took over. It typically was a great work environment before Sept. 2012. After the news of the Valeant acquisition, employee moral dropped significantly. The "real" Medicis died on 12/14/2012.

    Cons

    Late hours, lots of overtime, boys- club mentality. Many hoops to go through just to get something through the FAC process. The process was much more complicated than it needed to be.
