    Pros

    decent benefits, competitive pay, good cafeteria

    Cons

    Horrible CEO, tarnished corporate image, multiple rounds of outsourcing/layoffs, damaging publicity from EpiPen scandal & inversion deal, constant job security threat from potential merger/buyout and the associated shortcuts taken to keep an attractive balance sheet and prevent hemorrhaging shareholders amidst scandals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your resume current.

    I worked at Mylan Inc full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very inexpensive health benefits.

    Free tea and coffee in the break rooms

    Cons

    Mylan is not a good place to work if you have children or want a life outside of work. Horrendous work/life balance. Expected to host phone calls as early as 5 AM and late as 8 PM in the same day, and be available to answer phone calls and emails 24/7.

    Working from home is greatly frowned upon, even for corporate employees who are given a work cell phone.

    No sense of direction for its employees and is very unorganized. Management does not make decisions and blames others when things do not go well.

    There are many opportunities to move up and around, as long as you are willing to work yourself to the bone or have a connection with someone in a higher level in the organization. Very bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new leaders who cares about employees' well-being and decide on the direction for the company

    I worked at Mylan Inc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global Scope of Business - great experience with international talent and customers
    Impressive Peers/Colleagues - bright, collaborative, caring
    Opportunities abound - many commercial and operational areas have low process maturity so there's plenty of opportunity to make improvements and advance the business.

    Cons

    Sr Leadership Politics, Very little permeates middle management (up or down)
    Success is too dependent on heroic acts from individual contributors - this is worn as a badge of honor
    Current focus on short-term tactical moves, while sacrificing sustainable progress on long term, strategic objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of transparency. If you motives are true and sincere, let he light in.

    Pros

    Small pharma, great district managers, over-all enjoyed working there

    Cons

    questionable leadership and future, but not unlike any other pharmaceutical company: it is all about upper management bonuses, so lay-offs always a strong possibility if profitability is "off."

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk: "Do what's right, not what's easy."
