    Pros

    The pay is great, work is pretty easy, great benefits.

    Cons

    Usually have to work off-shift in manufacturing for years before getting on to first shift, management is inconsistent among shifts. Management does not listen to suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    The manufacturing facilities are losing sight of it's quality procedures. Management thinks it's one way when in reality quality is not being followed. The deviations speak for themselves.

    Pros

    Great salary, a growing business, Nice office space

    Cons

    It is a pretty lean company so the work life balance can be a challenge. The office is in the middle of nowhere

    Advice to Management

    Buy office space in Grand Rapids. You will recruit better talent with downtown office spaces

    With Perrigo's accelerated growth through acquisitions of companies and products, existing departments can find themselves under tremendous pressure to meet the new demands.

    Pros

    Interesting projects and products. Friendly and helpful coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape and paperwork to get anything done, both because of regulations and sometimes excessive management oversight. Too much emphasis on squeaky wheels and one-time issues instead of long term impactful solutions.

    Pros

    Benefits and job experience was terrific. Generally sociable atmosphere, good communication.

    Cons

    Middle management. Some of the lab supervisors & managers can be unprofessional and not always resourceful when investigating out-of spec results.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the managers who constantly have complaints against them.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, easy jobs with realistic employee expectations. Benefits are some of the cheapest in the area if you meet their fitness criteria.

    Cons

    Antiquated manufacturing processes and an old school business model signals a focus on short term profits rather than long term viability

    Low expectations of employees on almost every level can be very frustrating for managers

    Recent changes to wages and benefits and a corporate inversion to maximize profits, may be a warning to anyone considering a job offer here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making perrigo a state of the art, trend setting industry leading manufacturing facility for long term success. Too much focus on spending pennies to make nickels short term instead of spending real money for long term success. Adopting manufacturing processes 10 years or more after they are considered innovative is not a good plan.

    Great insurance as of fiscal year 2013. Management on executive level is amazing. Management on floor could be better.

    Pros

    Bonus every quarter. Fitness center along with discounted insurance for being healthy. CEO is one of the best. Very strong core values. Perrigo has many internal job options, help with college, and is very family centered. Job is one of the easiest I have ever had. Lots of training involved.

    Cons

    Very little direct hire. Most jobs w/o degree require temp service to become full time. Time ranges from one month to one year to be hired.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to be improved. Fitness center should be offered to anyone who is required to do the PWP. Trainers should be paid more for leading lines.

    Pros

    They have lots of great programs to help you out. They provide classes throughout the company to help improve yourself along with a tuition reimbursement plan to help you go back to school. They also have great insurance and a 401k plan. Your job will never be boring since there is always something new happening or some new over the counter medicine about to come out.

    Cons

    Occasionally it feels like when you have a new idea and someone else already has a plan they aren't willing to listen to your new, possibly better, idea. Now that's not everyone, but you're going to run in to this happening at pretty much any place you go to work that is a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    More Supervisors that have actual experience with a pharmecutical company would be preferred.
