    I worked at Forest Labs full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are smart, dedicated, hard-working co-workers at Forest.

    Cons

    The company used to be very authoritarian. Some leaders seem to try to change the authoritarian culture, but whether it will become a constructive, open, positive place to work is uncertain in this difficult time for the company. Information is generally not shared. Reviews are either only a formality, or used to criticize or blame. You're either on the good side, or the bad.

    Hard working people never get recognized. Review and reward process is a total joke.

    I have been working at Forest Labs full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good business model still going thru growing pain.

    Cons

    Still going thru growing pain. Disorganized projects/departments and favoritism/unfair/unreasonable rewarding system. No one really knows who does what. R&D is filled with uninspired Pigeon holed workers who are self satisfied and doesn't even know what challenge means. Where is the growth?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to read the actual reviews not the numbers/names only. You can not roll a dice on a list of names. When you don't value or recognize real talents nor hard workers they leave. It is simple as 123. If you have no time for a fair evaluation, get someone to do FOR You! And the stories between dealing 2-3 pipeline and 9+ are quite different. Idle job fillers need some wake up calls as standard of workers/work has gone down significantly compared to 7-10 years ago. Restructuring is inevitable. Otherwise future is bleak after the retiring of Lexapro.
