It's too bad the anonymity of the internet leads to such crap on message boards. They could be such a useful means for communicating real information. Instead, you get a bunch of idiots intent on trying to move a share price with lies and half-truths.
I've worked for Aventis and predecessors for >15 years. The company doesn't face any more challenges today than at any other time in it's history. Probably fewer.
So far, OTC loratidine hasn't cut the size of antihistamine market drastically. Although it will surely be smaller. Ketek is moving toward approval, slowly but surely. And for the record, the US business is primarily run by Americans!
It's not a perfect company, but it is one that has hit its earnings target every quarter since inception 3 years ago. That's not an entirely bad start.
OK. Go ahead. Flame me with your idiotic comments.
Not saying morale for existing people is not great. Why should it not high salary and great benefits!! Not envious just the facts. What other pharma starts new folks with 4 weeks vacation?
However, the point is this company decided to do away with culture at the two former companies and stat anew. I never heard of this at any other pharma co. The impact on buiness is obvious. Former HMR product like Alegra is floundering due to among another lack of marketing/development continuity. same for Lovenox.
Well said. I am from the RPR legacy side and my HMR legacy people are terrific folks to work with. We never find any discourse over which side people came from or who's system was better. We don't bother with such nonsense. And yes, morale is very good.
>Sounds like morale is pretty bad at AVE. <
Not at all. Morale in my division is quite good right now! And by the way, I have former Marion, Hoechst, Rorer, Fisons etc. people on my team. If you didn't ask them, you wouldn't know who was from which legacy company. You certainly can't tell from performance of attitude.
the folks that were in BW did not have the HMR Culture. Decsions on this stuff was made in KC and were often ignored. Great so now we have a bunch of disfunctional people with outsiders added that have no industry experience....sounds like a plan!!
RPR people never had any culture to begin with. They are like gypsies and came from multiple hybrid like Revlon, Rorer then RPR. These people love confusion and mis-management because that's the perfect way to hide their incompetance and lack of productivity!
