    Pros

    Company benefits before March 1st, 2014. That's about it for pros.

    Cons

    Too many to name - management in Clinical Operations have a bad reputation. It can be seen as a result of their high turnover rate of their employees. Beware of management as they will use what they can and fire you just as fast as they hired you for any odd ball reason. If you see good ratings - be wary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect and honor their achievements. What comes around goes around. Thank God I'm out of there.

  3.  

    Warner Chilcott was a company focused on performance driven results.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The compensation scale for performance at WC was excellent.

    Cons

    Very little clinical focus or training. Very little focus on managed care coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The key to great success in pharma so often is guided not only by the quality of the product and the relationships developed by the representative, but also, in the current environment, by the ability of the physician to somewhat easily write the product and by the willingness of the patient to fill it.

    Pros

    If you increase market share you will get rewarded very nicely with their bonus structure they have in place. Salary is okay compared other companies. Great health benefits, company car, and free gas.

    Cons

    Depending on your manager if you don't perform quick you will most likely be gone within the first nine months if not sooner. Know for their high turnover because they get rid of people so quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate with other management. Different parts of the company were always against each other. If you would all come together you would probably accomplish a lot more.
