    I worked at Actavis full-time

    Pros

    - Great senior management team
    - Some great team members
    - Sense of community

    Cons

    - As one of the larger employers in North Devon people get in and never leave, which leaves very few opportunities for career progression
    - Not true to their word, promised career progression but extraordinarily slow to move on this - kept getting fobbed off
    - Having represented other employees in various negotiations, the HR department are pretty brutal
    - There are some VERY backwards attitudes, I was disgusted by some of the things I heard, many people were openly racist
    - Very change averse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 reviews of the middle management could throw up some very interesting results

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sofia (Bulgaria)
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Actavis in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    They used a recruitment company to find suitable candidates. At least they used a recruitment company for this position. At first I was contacted by a recruiter and I had a phone interview. It took around 30 minutes. After that I was recommended for an interview with a representative of the company. The interview was conducted only by the company's representative. It included popular questions such as: How do you see yourself in 5 years?, What do you expect from the position?, etc. It was a standard one.
