Horrible place to work
project lead (Former Employee), Marlow, ENGDecember 13, 2013
Pros: you will end up work much longer than normal hours
Cons: horrible managers......very non-cooperative
A typical day is between 9-6 and the managers expect you to work more than normal working hours..........reason behind is US based company....horrible managers......very non-cooperative
Managers will never allow you to speak up......they will promise lots of opportunity and ultimately you will not gain a list opportunity...no growth....no benefits

Territory Manager, Aesthetic Products (Former Employee), USASeptember 9, 2013
Pros: the teammates were great
Cons: constant pressure, stress, changes direction a lot, quotas were rediculous at least 50% increase over previous year to make any bonus
Very stressful environment, must work at least 50-60 hours and your only as good as your last month, at least in the SkinMedica division. I was unhappy and managed by fear most of my career. I had 4 managers in 3 years.

I Cannot Wait Until I Leave This Company...
Territory Manager (Current Employee), Irvine, CAJune 18, 2013
Pros: compensation
Cons: micromanagement, threats, no work-life balance and lots more...
I have been with Allergan Eye Care for many years.

This company is now filled with ex Novartis reps that are managing seasoned Allergan reps like me who have been here from the start paying their dues building once a great company.

Thanks to my new manager of a few months who was a rep at a big pharma company for only 2 years, my entire team is looking – more... to get out of here, including me.

First signature call at 8:30AM and last signature call at 4:30PM...REALLY!!!

This guy needs to go back to Novartis and collect his signatures! Stay away from West/Southwest Region in Eye Care! – less

I work in Eye Care and not all Area Managers are bad but my Area Manager, he is a MICRO-MANAGING NIGHTMARE!!!

I have a young family, do not get enough time with them, always having to complete tons of paperwork and respond to emails EVERY – more... WEEKEND!!!

The constant threats of losing our jobs is too stressful for me. I am also looking to get out myself. – less

STUDY MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Goleta, CAMay 9, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling, good benefits, free coffee
Cons: micromanagement, decisions put off, hiring freeze
A typical day at work starts off with about 10-15 emails, then certain items you need to do, along with a meeting or two a day. The management is good, but new to the device industry. The co-workers are amazing and make a great team. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the constant change and new directions the company takes. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is helping others conduct a clinical trial. – less
