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

    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.

    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

    AMRI is consistently increasing their domestic and international service offerings. As an established CRO, AMRI works with several large pharma and other industry partners. Department cross-training and seminars introduce employees to the workings of all departments.

    Cons

    Low salary and long hours causes a high turnaround for this organization. There is a disconnect between "corportate" and "plant" employees causing power struggles during internal projects. Many key departments are resource strapped causing significant bottlenecks and difficulty to complete IT projects on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not consistently operate on the lower end of the industry salary structure. You lose good people when they feel undervalued. More buy-in and support is needed from upper management to drive project completion. Employees should embrace process changes when implementing new software, rather than customizing software to meet "the way we do business".
