    Pros

    Very nice, clean, modern facility with a great on-site café/grille. Many good people work there who genuinely care about the consumers of the diabetes medication that is produced there. The facility is large, with plenty of room to grow. The office areas have hydraulic desks which can be raised and lowered for maximum comfort while working. The plant is only a few years old and is maintained in an excellent fashion. The technology in use there is cutting edge and is very impressive.

    Cons

    Very little communication from departmental directors to their subordinates. I was there for over two years in a temporary position. The departmental director that I reported to seldom, if ever, spoke to me, nor did this person ever show (to me) any interest in the work that I performed. When it was necessary for me to speak to this person, I was treated like an interruption and a nuisance. I was eventually let go and my responsibilities were given to a full-time employee who was already working 45-50 hours a week. The department that I was a part of was very over-worked and very under-staffed, yet temporary workers like me were being let go because the departmental director did not want us on the budget any longer. Apparently, there was no thought given to the work load of the employees who were forced to do their own job and to take on another person's job. After being there as long as I was, I feel qualified to say that this facility is poorly managed from middle management downward, with few exceptions. I did all that they asked me for over two years- I was trying to prove myself and show my loyalty to them, but that did not matter to the decision-makers.

    Advice to Management

    The on-site Operations Director is a great guy and I have no issue with him in any way. The Departmental Directors need to communicate with and listen to those who report to them- listen to their concerns and take time to learn (from them) what they do and why it matters. Hire the ones that are there and doing the work instead of letting them go and forcing other people to take on more responsibilities when they are already overworked.
