Good entry level medical sales organization
Salesperson (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CASeptember 25, 2018
This feedback is strictly related to Allergan roles in selling commercial pharmaceutical products. Allergan has a good pipeline of medications. The organization has changed significantly due to acquisitions. The immediate divisional and regional management dictates the working/feedback environment. The company has shifted significantly toward hiring very young people averaging 1-2 years of sales experience. The initial pay is very low relative to the industry, and raises are minimal.
Pros
Decent exposure to selling to doctors
Cons
Very inexperienced management

Senior Medical Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCSeptember 17, 2018
good company, good pay, good benefits, limited stability typical day is self scheduled, visiting prescribers, pharmacies, etc I have nothing more to say other than the company is great, I waned to spend my entire career there, but in light of the company in need of downsizing I was caught in this sane this time.
Pros

Cons
limited stability

Systems Analyst - Quality Applications (Former Employee) –  Elizabeth, NJSeptember 6, 2018
Enjoyed working at Allergan, positive management, great workplace culture, good benefits, and ability to work from home. Hardest part was having to work very long hours when validating systems but was well compensated when yearly reviews were done.

Account Specialist / Hospital Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Somewhere in TexasAugust 31, 2018
Very big company - got too big - but still could work on paying employees much more (vs. other pharmaceutical companies). Unstable company right now but if you have to get in the industry, it does the job.

Business Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 30, 2018
My tenure with Allergan taught me many things. Support by all departments, multi-tasking several products and programs simultaneously. Autonomy. Choosing a career path and giving the road map and structure to obtain those goals. Continuing education.

A chaotic, scattered pipeline management failure train wreck.
Regional Site Manager (Former Employee) –  ColoradoAugust 26, 2018
Upper management lacks any focus regarding pipeline development. Excessive time, resources, training, self-lead learning and money is wasted. Site personnel and Principal Investigators are disappointed, annoyed and unmotivated to work with Allergan again.

Projects are launched, personnel resources allocated, learning engaged, and the project is dropped, on a monthly basis.

Absolutely the worst systems for reporting and site management tracking.
Pros
One can leave the job and find another.
Cons
Lack of wisdom in project management and the worst electronic systems in the industry.

It was an alright place to work.
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXAugust 24, 2018
You don't know if you were guaranteed to work day to day. They have long lay off periods. They gave you no chance of going from temporary to perminant.
Pros
You had plenty of days off to do what you needed to do.
Cons
You couldn't go temporary to perminant. No benifits. No Holiday pay.

Good company to work with, great benefits, but the company has been layoff a lot of employees about 600 in the last few years so it is not very stable right now.

Bariatric Practice Advisor (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 12, 2018
Frequent Plan of Action meetings were very helpful. I felt that I was surrounded by a very intelligent and incredibly capable team, which I appreciated. I was disappointed though that the day after a meeting where the president stated that the health of our business division was great, that a few hundred folks were laid off.

Primary Care Representative (Former Employee) –  AnonymousAugust 6, 2018
Watch the stock market as that is what this company uses to determine their every move. If Allergan stock plummets, you can be positive that layoffs are coming. Upper management does not care about their sales professionals as much as they care about their stockholders.
Pros
It’s a job
Cons
Job security, pay, culture
