I have been working at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

This review is before the Valeant acquisition and will most likely not apply after. Great perks; yoga classes, game room, benefits, 401K/ profit sharing, and competitive salaries.

Cons

Very process heavy, regulatory and legal processes are extensive for all departments. Some higher up management are not good managers and would be best utilized in other areas. Certain departments do not recognize hard work; advancement opportunities come through being here a long time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reallocate manager positions to those that can and want to manage people.

    Pros

    Kinda seems like a moot point since all the pros will be gone in a little while since Medicis was purchased by Valeant

    Cons

    Purchased by Valeant, worst decision ever.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I think the IT department has been a cohesive backbone for this company and that was because we brought our desk up to ITIL standards

    Cons

    I cannot think anything negative to say about this company. Our team comes in and gets the job done.
