"I have worked for Forest for over 5 years, it was a wonderful place to work until the Actavis takeover was announced, since then the company has been in chaos, and commitments that have been made in writing to employees have repeatedly been contradicted by Actavis and/or amended or reversed repeatedly so no commitments can be trusted."
