    Pros

    on a postive change pathway and making great decisions such as bringing in new site head. Growing aggressively and pushing employees to contribute and grow. new focus on communication, leadership, and performance in Gburg since the new site head came two years ago.

    Cons

    busy environment......people are expected to work hard and long if need be......too much complaining by employees drags down the culture at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue the push for more effective leadership and don't be afraid to deal with the naysayers swiftly and aggressively. Continue to expand product portfolio and ensure future of site and employees

    I worked at Emergent BioSolutions

    Pros

    They hand you as much responsibility as you want to handle. So there is a lot of challenge. Lots of communication. They are willing to give the resources to get the job done. Very encouraging of personal and professional development. Great experience in cGMP environment.

    Cons

    There has been few people that were promoted from within to management that are not qualified for the job, therefore driving some employees out of the company. At times management can be indecisive about what they want for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting from within needs to be taken very seriously to put the right person in the right position
