I worked at AMRI

Pros

I got to do a lot of organic chemistry - both small scale and large scale. I got exposure to all aspects of drug discovery and development process.

Cons

This is a place where its very hard to grow professionally. Promotions are given only after several years and you have be lucky to be with a supporting supervisor (who are very rare!).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, they don't listen anways.

    I worked at AMRI

    Pros

    AMRI has a good location in Albany in relation to highways, cafeteria on site is well run with by nice people, most peers are helpful getting up to speed.

    Cons

    Very unstable management structure. Expectation that employees will live and breath AMRI, no work/life balance, Very poor communication internally. Scientific team and Business Development teams are very disfunctional and combative.

    Sr. Management and HR do not care about their employees in any way, shape or form.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the management needs to change how it is running the business before every solid employee runs away to the competition. Management needs to do much better due dilligence before acquisitions are made that cause financial disasters for the company. People should matter just a shred to the HR team but they DO NOT.

    I have been working at AMRI

    Pros

    Affordable health insurance and good 401K match.
    Buildings were comfortable,well maintained, and functional.
    Lot of exciting and new scientific knowledge with each project.

    Cons

    Poor work to home life ratio.
    Management training is poor, so managers can be hit or miss.
    Poor distribution of compensation, when everyone works hard.
    Lots of politics in compensation and job rating.
    Lack of opportunity to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread out benefits to all levels.
    Appreciate the staff, it is what makes the company, not the equipment.
    Provide better management training and listen to employees.
