    Dynamic company with forward focus

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is continuing to grow which makes for a challenging, but rewarding workplace.

    ConsOnce in position it's hard to move, a minimum of 3 years in a current position before being considered for another more suited for skill set is discouraging. Eliminating the educational benefits/reimbursement caused many talented young people to leave the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReturn the educational benefit to people that make a difference in the company. Education grows a company's base and breeds motivation to stay with a company. Replacing an employee is a more costly expense than tuition.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ELANCO - A great animal health company to work for

    Human Resources Strategic Business Partner (SBP) (Current Employee)
    Greenfield, IN

    ProsGreat "entrepreneurial" and open/transparent culture. Solid core visible (lived-out) values of Respect for People, Integrity, & Excellence. A compelling mission & cause: food and companionship enriching life. No Performance Ratings. Focus on Development. Business growth & career opportunities. Aquiring other companies & technologies that complement existing business model & product portfolio. Most recent acquisition (Novartis Animal Health) will effectively result in 1.5x growth in revenue and employee population. Excellent & approachable senior leadership.

    ConsAs size grows, culture is changing, and experiencing "growing-up" (becoming a "big-boy company" pains). In some ways good (i.e. more robust business processes); in some ways maybe not so good (i.e. more big-pharma-esque; more bureaucracy; less nimble). Supports "work-life balance" but operates with very lean staff (organization undersized; jobs oversized) so W-L balance difficult to realize in some areas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSuccessfully grow big (deliver more value to customers) while staying culturally small (maintain openness, trust, creativity, innovation) without becoming burdened with big-organization politics and bureaucracy). Create a more fun workplace.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall Good Place to Be

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Augusta, GA

    ProsFuture outlook is positive - growth of product sales and potential site expansion opportunities
    Relatively small site so offers opportunities for developing strong working relationships with coworkers and getting involved in a broad range of activities/job experiences
    Good working conditions - very focused on worker safety, clean, no potential for exposure to harmful chemicals or conditions
    Technical expertise of all types is strongly valued - engineering, regulatory, chemistry, biology

    ConsNon operator positions require 24/7 support - results in taking computers home, working long hours or nights/weekends at times, etc
    Site has tendancy to overcommit/ is poor at prioritizing large efforts - with limited site resources this results in some groups being pulled in too many directions or working long hours at times
    Despite small size of the site, corporate and regulatory requirements result in slow rate of implementing change with many levels of approvals and reviews

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork more on pushing decisions down as far as possible
    Lead more and manage less, spend more time on developing, valuing, and leveraging relationships with site employees to take full advantage of their skills and abilities

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
