    I have been working at Watson Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive

    Cons

    Actavis is going through constant mergers and acquisitions. With that comes job insecurity as jobs are duplicated. The new IT management established a year ago, does not believe in personal time or work / family separation, and manages with threats. Actavis does not allow working from home and do not foresee the company allowing it for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Employees need personal and family time.
