Great pay...if you want to work for upper management that treats you as disposable

    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job growth was great, salary and bonuses were great too. Manager was competent and fun to work with. Creativity was encouraged and my ideas were taken seriously. Flexible work environment and great culture. The people were phenomenal and competent in their job skills and level. Employee training and support were superb.

    Cons

    It was sold to another pharmaceutical company and all of the great aspects of the company went away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too bad the company was sold, I enjoyed my time very much.

    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.
