    Very unprofessional senior management & bad work culture

    Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) Hayward, CA

    ProsCompetitive salary and if you are friend with senior management then it can go quickly up without talents.

    ConsWhen times are lean and overtime is a bad word then it is time to start making friendship with senior management or update your resume. When the axes comes down it is swift and painless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep the qualified talent and not just the "yes" people and there will be less of a let down in production and with FDA. Keep quality standards high and don't do the short cuts. Remember your product is being used by human.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unforgettable and not in a good way

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are new to the industry and don't plan to stay more than a few years this is your place.

    Cons-The management is terrible.Very childish and unprofessional
    -Coworkers are not very professional, take everything personal
    -No oppurtunities to advance unless you plan on bringing the upper managment lunch, gifts, etc.
    -Sucking up is key
    -If you are an honest, hardworking person expect to get trampled and have loads of work dumped on you and have management take credit for your accomplishments instead of you.
    -HR is also terrible. There is no confidentiality when you report any issues regarding management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart over. Things are clearly not working-still.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    very little almost none salary increase. much unpaid overtime. Not respected. firing all the time at least one permonth.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Hayward, CA

    Prosthere is no single good reason to work there.

    Consmanagement is very bad and not organized. If u r offered permanent, do not accept it because they ask u to come
     weekends all the time. especially raw material position and reviewer position.they r
    under the same boss and if he does not like u , he will pick on any single thing to fire u. 5 raw material chemists were fired in one month one week apart from each other. hewill also make your life hell until you quit if he cannot get any reason to fire u. there r only 8 chemists in that group. 3 left are new people. Do not be regret later if u do not listen my advice. just go to somewhere else where u get respected. they do not treat u like a person.they may move everything to Taiwan in 2 years.do not also join the generic research dept or QC chemist position. Everyone working there is not happy everyday because u don't know when is your turn. HR should investigate this. But nothing has been done. Only sweet talk to ask u to work long and overtime hrs. All the bonuses only go to the management. u will never see a penny in your checgok. I talked a lot already. Be wise and DO NOT go there. also promotion freeze. while I was there many years no one got promoted. Annual performance review only gives u 1 - 2% regardless of how much u work harder. if u r unlucky u may get less than 1%.

    Advice to Senior Managementrespect employees if u want to be successful. Do Not treat and kickout them like a garbage.

    Good starting place for no working experience, but no career development.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a good place to gain experience if you're fresh out of college or can't find a job. Friendly employees. Company is fairly steady and offer decent benefits.

    ConsCareer development is very limited. Company tends to hire outsider rather than promotes from within, especially to the management position.

    Supply Chain (Current Employee) Chalfont, PA
