I worked at Actavis full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Great products in growing areas. Good promotion opportunities. Good managed care department. Sales training is very good. 8% match.Cons
Clashing cultures Between the Forest reps and Actavis after 2014 buy-out. Lack of trust in management and new CEO. Fears of another buyout by a bigger fish. Employees are not happy and are jumping ship in droves. Beginning pay and benefits are on the low end and little to no room for negotiation of salary.Advice to ManagementAdvice
They need to put real value in front line sales people and not turn them over so fast. I had 15 territory partners in 4 years as a specialty rep. Many of them were excellent reps. Forest Management style is borderline militaristic. If reps don't hit goal you better find another job because the manager will score you low and then here comes the progressive discipline! The call panels could not be a bigger mess! Too many people calling on the same office for the same drug shuts everyone out. Forest / Actavis need to understand it is not three reps calling on an office with the same medicine that sells... One really good rep is more effective!Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
