The worst
Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Parsippany, NJOctober 21, 2017
Management needs a makover. Not enough people to do the job. Stressful days. Some employees were ridiculously nasty and impossible to work with. People moved along without a care. Job security also in the wind. Felt like high-school. And why no CEO? Glad im gone.
Pros
None
Cons

Division Manager (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 20, 2017
Allergan is a pay for performance company. If you exceed your goals you will be compensated fairly. the culture has changed over the past few years because of continuous downsizing/layoffs. The most enjoyable part of Allergan are the people that work in the field.

I've had better jobs
Product Surveillance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 12, 2017
The overall work is mind-numbing, its hard to care sometimes. I learned a lot of computer programs, but there is constant pressure to meet numbers. Management is decent. There is not much room for advancement. It seems the level you need to obtain to get a promotion or raise is always changing.
Pros
Good Managers
Cons
Stress level about meeting numbers

Associate Director, Marketing (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJOctober 11, 2017
Change in the pharma industry is inevitable, but Allergan takes it to a new level. As long as you're comfortable with shifting priorities and reorgs you'll be fairly compensated and surrounded by a lot of smart folks.
Cons
NYC work mentality ... work hard and harder.
