Great people, great products, Management stuck in past

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Forest Labs full-time

ProsThe company is very savvy at selecting great products and great people in the marketing department. The atmosphere is friendly and focused on the work. Pay is somewhat above average but in line with NYC location. Incentive compensation (options, restricted stock) can be very rewarding if you stay long term.

ConsManagement does not allow a lot of new thinking and essentially is stuck in the past. This is the main problem at an otherwise solid company.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower executive directors and other middle brand management to really own their businesses and make decisions on their own.
