Company is extremely micro-managed and the "culture" is not conducive for a healthy life style

I worked at Forest Labs full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good salary - starting is 53k. Bonus varies from 2k - 14k. Company car.

Cons

Micro-managing. Want everyone to be a puppet and fit the same mold. Pods are issues b/c some people don't work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Teach the managers how to let go of their micro-managing and employee retention may be better. Reps can think for themselves and have a true pulse of the territory, so let them do their job.

    I have been working at Forest Labs full-time

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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