Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)

January 1970

Be proactive managing your career- when leasfership changes the scope of your job, be proactive and discuss what resources you need to manage the scope change. I recently saw a high-performing woman given more responsibility to run the skincare business. This added scope didn’t come with a promotion- she was told to do the work and the promotion would later come. At the same time, a male colleague was given more responsibility for contouring business. This added responsibility came with a promotion and vp title. The takeaway: men are given a promotion first, THEN asked to do more work. Women are asked to do more work first, without a promotion.

    I work 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. Weekends are a barrage of one-off panic texts from leaders who are getting barraged with tactical ideas coming from the CEO and CCO, creating additional fir drill work that happens on the weekends. This is just the commercial side of the business. If you are one of the BCG consultancy’s, its a little better because you have a lot more resources given how much Allergan pays BCG.

    Very fair maternity leave policy

    We need a new CEO and CCO.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Current CEO is terrible. He has smart business leaders running vertical lines of business yet he does not allow them to make decisions based on their expertise. Current CEO’s answer for everything is to pay BCG consultants millions of dollars to recommend strategies that (1) the commercial teams have already employed (2) strategies that have already been evaluated by commercial teams and deemed ineffective and (3) strategies that have proven ineffective. CEO refuses to let his smart leaders run their business and the stock price reflects this. As a result, he is indecisive, changes direction frequently and has no long term vision for the company. This puts smart leaders in a difficult position- they are always churning through distracting tactics the CEO and CCO dictate. It’s unfortunate because there are some smart and inspiring women and men at the company.

AGN is a great company, but field sales flexibility is highly dependent upon regional and district leadership. Upper management positions are still largely dominated by males.

There is a good mix of genders in all departments and several women in leadership positions. It's easy to find impressive female role models to learn from.

Allergan pays well and has good benefits. It is difficult for women to move up the ladder in research and development. When I worked there it was an "old boys" club.

This company is improving in work-life balance. Recently implimented a generous 14 week fully paid maternity leave policy for the new year. Work from home is more widely accepted but approval depends on your manager.

Good for the most part, but senior management is mostly all men.
