      Pros

      Very nice culture and the products they have are top notch--best in market.

      Cons

      Even after the purchase of Shire, Poor pipeline while several products are about to LOE. It has become a "layoff company." Not aggressive getting products on managed care. Now, pretty large territories, often solo, competing v other products with teams. Launching products is a huge weakness for the marketing dept. Even naming of new products has been a disaster (ex: Nesina diabetes family of products...3 totally...

      Pros

      Decent pay, company car which is generally the norm for pharma

      Cons

      Pipeline slim to none. Biggest drivers of revenue have patents winding down in next 1-2yrs and nothing big to replace them with. Acquisition of other companies necessary but equates to lay-offs/RIF's/Downsizing whatever you care to call it to maintain "reasonable" headcount.

      Pros

      Great culture that disappears with the Shire acquisition

      Cons

      Badly organized, lack of transparent cross functional collaboration and communication, lovely values are imbedded in all projects and communications but it’s seldom acted upon, often about words, without proper foundation. The senior management protects its position without considering growth opportunities for its team members and speak up is advertised and promoted but not truly appreciated. The ones that add value and...

      Advice to Management

      Increase people management skills of its leaders, more transparent communication even if the message is a negative one, fair recruitment process for the integration and a exit package in line with the market, as a global organization you will have to start act like one

      Pros

      High pay, benefits and projects to be involved with

      Cons

      Long hours, no recognition or promotional opportunities unless you are a favorite, frequent company changes have stalled out growth opportunities at sites that were meant to be growth generating locations

      Advice to Management

      Grow your people, help them advance. Shift the focus from "it will look bad on metrics" to "how can we complete the task." Respect the time of people in meetings, stay off cell phones and laptops and participate. Arrive and leave meetings on time
