    Pros

    There are good benefits but that's from Allergan.

    Cons

    Workload distributed unequally. At least one manager were unprofessional, make you feel under appreciated and talk down on you. Work dumped on person and those work are supposedly from others. They said it's a team thing but it's not. Too many contingent/contracted positions and employees which means not many permanent positions.

    Pros

    None. Stress and Politics are the buzz words. R&D Sr. Management rules and anyone questioning their ideas and their greatness is put on the chopping block. R&D is totally fake and products are based on fake science and misleading claims.

    Cons

    Survival skills will need licking the senior management. Extremely corrupt, unethical, dishonest, scheming and manipulative system. Need to have these traits to survive. Avoid and stay away if you can. No career development & advancement opportunities. Extremely stressful environment.
