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

    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

    Pros

    Lot of Opportunities to work on as they have gamit of Infrasturcture and Application software in the company and have options to work in many different areas.

    Cons

    Among the decisions makers very shallow understanding of what is best to implement. Not sure if they come from a pre technology era and do not want to listen to experienced people due to egos or might have a tunnel vision as they may be getting kickbacks from vendors

    Advice to Management

    For the executive management on the 5th floor. You do not see the people who actually make a difference but look at a dashboard presented to you by the middle management which is skewed. I am sure you see what some people achieve by sepnding all the dollars and result in failures. Why do you shield them - is there something which employees do not know. Your statement 1:Billion is so comical - it is always 1:1. Hope to see a change and not see articles like one in the news today .

    Pros

    Great health benefits and compensation

    Cons

    Not a place at all for folks who are into software development or related fields, they don't have any projects other than maintenance types, even those they have outsourced it to certain countries.

    Advice to Management

    IT needs transformed, Don't bring in people with no projects, having too many managers / project managers won't help in any way.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. Is a great company and some of the people a trying hard to do a good job

    Cons

    Leaders are not leaders they are managers that manage with fear and intimidation. Not leaders just managers trying to make a place for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Provide leaders with tools to lead

    Dynamic company leadership at the top, great workspace created at the corporate HQ in Pittsburgh

    Cons

    Unstable, visionless and weak leadership exhibited in downstream management, unprofessional hiring practices.

    Advice to Management

    Need to prove that there is vision to build this into a large diversified company. Current practices seem to indicate that there is going to be a cut-and-run coming in the near future, where the top management is doing everything just to make it an attractive proposition for selling - with large gains for their own pockets when it happens.
