Great company to work for, in the right department

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ (US)

I have been working at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis review is before the Valeant acquisition and will most likely not apply after. Great perks; yoga classes, game room, benefits, 401K/ profit sharing, and competitive salaries.

ConsVery process heavy, regulatory and legal processes are extensive for all departments. Some higher up management are not good managers and would be best utilized in other areas. Certain departments do not recognize hard work; advancement opportunities come through being here a long time.

Advice to Senior ManagementReallocate manager positions to those that can and want to manage people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Too bad I am going to lose my job to Valeant

Quality Assurance (Current Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ (US)

I have been working at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time for more than 5 years

ProsKinda seems like a moot point since all the pros will be gone in a little while since Medicis was purchased by Valeant

ConsPurchased by Valeant, worst decision ever.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
