    I have been working at Lonza full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Getting to work alongside some of the pharma industries most talented, motivated people. Company Health Benefits, and the ability to work on cutting edge medicines and infrastructures very cool stuff.

    Cons

    As with any company there is 80% you love and 20% you wish you could change. Lonza is an Old well respected / established company and embracing change / new technologies at times takes longer than I would like.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lonza (Walkersville, MD) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the company due to my expertise in a specific area. Once I agreed to discuss the possibility of my coming to work for them I began to be treated as any candidate off the street. When I arrived for on site interview I was told why they couldn't offer what we had agreed over the phone to be reasonable salary and relocation. In the end they modified their offer but the relocation package was so insignificant that it made it impossible to consider. I found the company to be very amateurish as I ended up advising them on what should be offered to someone at my level. The whole experience was extremely unprofessional. I would not recommend taking the time to talk with Lonza if it requires a relocation. Most highly sought after professionals are out of their price range, they are bargain shopping for talent.
