    I worked at Almac Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent, hard working, dedicated co-workers.
    On site gym

    Cons

    Building is new but too small already, not enough parking.
    Management is inconsistent across departments and levels.
    Pay is not commensurate with experience and skills.
    No work like balance for lower level employees. Managers can work from home, flex schedule, etc. but promote themselves as a flexible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize practices across departments
    LISTEN to the employees - they are your best resource, if they say there is something wrong, at least take a look at it.

    I have been working at Almac Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Has an on site Gym, there are several good people (co-workers), nice building, somewhat OK 401k, pretty good PTO time.

    Cons

    Horribly policies that treat certain work groups like dirt, and others like gold. Worst Micromanagement I've ever seen. Medical benefits get worse and worse and more expensive every couple of years. There is zero communication and no useful training. There is not room for growth. There is no direction from Management other than finger pointing, blaming, and generally making the employees feel as though they are worthless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the changes now, or continue to send the company on a downward spiral. The writing is on the wall, and the words are clearly coming out of the employees mouths. Almac used to be a great company to work for; sadly it is becoming the toilet of Pharmaceutical companies. Good employees find good companies to work for. Almac is no longer one of the "good companies"

    I have been working at Almac Group

    Pros

    a lot of days off. benefits. managers that enjoy making his employees smile with his crazy antics. friendly coworkers. They do more promotions that any other company I have ever been with.

    Cons

    supervisors could get more training that would make them more qualified to deal with their employees in a professional manor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As far as my manager goes, the warehouse manager Darrell Shiera, there is no other advise I can give him. He really does know everything there is to know about what goes on process wise and continues to make it better.
