Pros

Challenging. Wide Diversity of projects gives lots of experience quickly.
Business maybe coming back to profitability now that numberof chemists way down.

Cons

Morale low as recent layoffs targeted experienced high performers. Work hard/travel overseas yields higher salary led to layoffs while other questionable performers kept.
HR rules on their own agenda. Sr VPs either clueless or just lost. Middle managers try but often over ruled or overwhelmed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need strong president or new Sr VPs to get departments back under control and put HR in line to help employees not torment them.

    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.
