A tremendous company and a spectacular ride in career & rewards

Vice President, Officer (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Forest Labs

ProsForest Labs has great products, a stellar team, a bevy of new compounds coming to market in important categories where pay, benefits and career growth is possible for serious, dedicated team workers.

ConsThe company is undergoing great strains as it moves to a mature pharmaceutical company in a difficult market for sales at historical profitable levels. There will be a lot of turmoil in the next few years due to patent expiry in important products

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to better communicate with employees and the public about strategy, position the business is taking, and change in the marketplace as it pertains to the business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
