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.

    I worked at Forest Labs full-time

    Pros

    They had a technical 35 hour work week; although many worked more than that. Also in the summer they had half day fridays; you worked a little long monday to thursday but had a longer weekend.

    Cons

    The culture is changing they dont come across as caring about their people as they used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of people talk make it seem like they like you but then talk bad behind your back. Be aware of under the surface concerns.
