    Pros

    Company is reasonable toward employee, there is flexibility if you need time for your family or personal reasons and very cordial atmosphere.

    Cons

    I don't know, here, how you can go further or go high up in your career because there is limited scope in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if there will be benifit for every body, especially medical benifit, dental benifit and for the employee's families, also. Thank you.

    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

    New CFO is driving positive change. Unfortunately, this has meant some cuts and shutting down of unprofitable divisions but this is long past due. Despite what somebody posted, the medical benefits are excellent and are the best of I have ever had. 2013 rates did not go up with the excpetion of a small increase in dental (less than $1). I find everyone to be professional and easy to work with. Stock price seems to be supporting the positive changes.

    Cons

    The organization is still top heavy. Along with that, some of these more senior people continue to try and run things like a mom and pop shop because they have been here since the early days. Advancement opportunities are lacking but this seems to be driven more by economic conditions versus anything company related.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to the employees and see what they are thinking. They may have some great ideas or can provide additional insight that can help move us in the positive direction.
