    Pros

    Too few to mention. If you want to learn how not to manage, apply today.

    Cons

    Never stop looking over your shoulder. You are expendable and don't expect your length of service or performance will save you once you fall from grace. If you're already there, don't tell them where your going once you escape. HR will call your prospective employer and bad mouth your reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Sell and start a prison.

    I worked at AMRI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was close to where I lived? Nothing much else to say, really. 20 word minimum is required in the review. The Rensselaer plant, itself, will likely stick around for a while via being bought by another company. Otherwise, AMRI's stock is what, $3 as of writing this, and is still dropping.

    Cons

    Management unresponsive to problems. Many employees report non-responsiveness to issues between co-workers. Many co-workers jump ship early and often after finding a better gig. Too much inter-office/lab drama. Low pay. Correction: VERY low pay. Regeneron and GE pay more. No work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Retain talent. So far, you have utterly failed at that.

    Pros

    Challenging work with a great Tech Team in Organic Based Pharmaceutical Synthesis.

    Cons

    Work Force cut to the bone. All your time is spent in keeping head above water. Very little time to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Identify why we are loosing our brightest employees to the compatition, fix it. HR department has a reputation of being against the employee. Right or wrong, that is the fact, Fix it.

    Pros

    The most positive reason to work at AMRI is that the products made at AMRI positively affect lives. You can feel good about the impact of your work.

    Cons

    Management is terrible at AMRI. They do not care about the morale of the employees. They do not reward employees for good work.

    Advice to Management

    They know what they are doing. The strategy seems to be to create a difficult work environment for the employees.
