    Current Employee - Laboratory Scientist in Horsham, PA

    I have been working at Drugscan (more than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly, we all get along and welcome new people
    Pay is decent for those with little experience
    Gain good experience
    Free tea/coffee

    Cons

    Micromanaging
    Cliquish between departments and titles
    Work is repetitive (but that's lab work for you)
    Tools disappears/doesn't function and doesn't get replaced or it takes months to get replaced
    A lot of old equipment still in use
    Schedule made on a weekly basis
    Time-off is accrued and not given at the beginning of the year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging and having freak-outs over a little bit of work; anyone who's been there more than a few months knows what they're doing and can handle it

  2. The worst management, communication, and turn over I've ever seen.

    Pros

    The pay was good but don't expect a raise. Benefits start the month after you're hired.

    Cons

    Management is living in the past. No idea how to run a modern organization and no effort is made to utilize talent of current employees. Innovation is non-existent. Management positions are given to friends of the higher ups regardless of qualifications. You will not advance here.

    They don’t practice what they preach as far as compliance, safety, and accountability are concerned. It is all about the money, period.

    Positive feedback, professional growth, and team work are not encouraged. Departments often spend days in conflict over small matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join us in the present. You have talented staff here, listen to them. Utilize them. Stop putting your friends in jobs and start hiring qualified people. Hire leaders not managers.

    Stop treating your staff like they are disposable and maybe even give some recognition to those doing well.

    Common sense does play a role in business. Stop ignoring it!

    Horrible workplace, don't work here!

    I worked at Drugscan

    Pros

    Most of the people are nice and friendly to work with. Good place to kickstart career, then move on.

    Cons

    No quality in the work they produce, it's all about quantity. Manipulating results is what they're good at. Promotion is based on how much you do, not how well you do it. Leaders are useless, they have no clue about the process of production. The leaders who have knowledge does not seem to care. Most of the time, walks around and talk all day rather than do work. Everyone seems to hate their job here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire poor managers who don't do anything. Too many "supervisors"
