Good company
IT Auditor (Current Employee) –  Madison, NJAugust 13, 2018
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.

Good Company
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.

Stay on your toes
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

Not my type of company
Contractor (Current Employee) –  Madison, NJAugust 3, 2018
There is limited opportunity for advancement at Allergan. They want a "certain" type to work there. Not everyone fits the bill, regardless of one's educational background or work ethic.
Pros
Work from home policy
Cons
Advancement opportunity, hiring policy

Poor management
Brand Representative (Former Employee) –  WisconsinJuly 27, 2018
The management style is cookie cutter. No coaching through questions I had, just do it. This was not my first job, so I knew this style was not going to help me be productive. More than just me, but my team felt abandoned at times by management. Access to doctors in Wisconsin is very difficult or non existent, but you are rated on how many doctors you can see in a day. Sometimes, depending on the day, there would be an hour drive between locations only to have no access. Their style of managing is to have you create reports, but the reports don't help with real life scenarios and objections.
Pros
You get a company car

Fear
Sr. Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Madison, NJJuly 27, 2018
After so many M&As, those who could left and those who couldn't remained. Toxic culture, most are insecure and working out of fear of losing their jobs so brown-nose to stay, and out right lie and make up stories to make themselves look better than others. Great products but upper mgmt. cares little for employees and works you to the bone. Learn a lot if colleagues share.
Pros
Learn, products
Cons
everything

Field Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 19, 2018
Too big and disconnected. No transparency. So many great people, so many different leaders. Lacked focus over my tenure. Vision was too narrow and company focussed.

Specialty Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 17, 2018
Would not recommend working at Allergan. Eleven years ago Allergan had a great culture one that encourage autonomy and personal growth. the past few years that changed.

Great relationship with my manager with the ability to work very cross-functionally and get exposure to other areas of the company. Was also able to travel to other offices and work from there.

Work and Go Home
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 2, 2018
Allergan is a great company to work for, however at some point in time it becomes a work and go home type of situation. You become burned out due to a lack of headcount in certain departments. At times, the workload becomes overwhelming and it is not easy for the small teams to stay afloat without lacking in another area.

Senior Consignment Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 27, 2018
I moved from CA to TX for this company. It was a great company to work for in CA but in TX there were a lot of problems. Work day was great but the work load was very outdated. Management was too new and did not understand the work that went into consignment. The Benefits were great. Free coffee and televisions in the break area.

Manufacturing Operator III (Current Employee) –  Waco, TXJune 22, 2018
12 hours of standing continuously is the hardest about this job. I've learned so much as far as product quality for patients. Management is ok but could use some up to date training, line leads sometimes have more knowledge then supervisors. The most enjoyable part is the pay and benefits.

Sales & Use Tax Analyst (Former Employee) –  Madison, NJJune 20, 2018
Allergan is a great place to work. All workers are wonderful but I'm only a temp and need a full time position. Allergan does not have a opening in their tax department at this time.

Was a good place, properly funded projects.
Senior Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Madison, NJJune 6, 2018
Allowed the engineers to do their work. Projects were properly funded with good time frames. I would not want to be an employee of any company Allergan purchased as their time to remain employed tends to be very limited.
Pros
Good team
Cons
Consultants and new employees from acquisitions seem disposible.

Sr. Engineer (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXJune 3, 2018
With minimum and within politically charged environment, one must find his/her own way to "prove" successful. Many managers are egoistic and plain insulting.

The most enjoyable part was that you stay "busy", often socially pleasant environment and good pay!

Run Away!
Senior District Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJune 2, 2018
Allergan is a company without a culture. There is no idea from upper management of what they want accomplished. They just know they want more from their employees while providing less for them.

Don't even think of coming here until the company figures out who they are.
