    Pros

    Dedicated team of people at the manufacturing site. Opportunity to wear a lot of different hats. Many challenges and interesting projects to undertake.

    Cons

    Too many mergers and acquisitions. Company has gotten too big and bureaucratic. Corporate leadership is severely lacking. Too many corporate initiatives are being pushed down that are a distraction to real value generation at the manufacturing sites.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management needs to understand that they exist to serve the manufacturing sites, not the other way around.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Actavis in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email regarding a phone interview with HR. A week later I was informed that they wanted me in for an in-person interview. Met with two managers, both were very insightful and gave detailed tasks that would be performed in the position. Never heard back from HR, or the two managers even after reaching out. So, I assumed the position was filled.
