    Current Employee - Manufacturing in Allegan, MI

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
