I worked at AMRI full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Cool people and the fact that there is no work and you get paid.

Cons

Quality of life is horrible and you are treated like a slave!!! The site in Burlington has no direction, no clients and I'd be surprised if they will ever have any serious clients considering the quality of the QA Director, not the Site Director. They have a hard time being compliant see the 483 in 2010.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is no management in Burlington, they only follow orders...everything comes from Albany and they just execute...

    I worked at AMRI full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Too few to mention. If you want to learn how not to manage, apply today.

    Cons

    Never stop looking over your shoulder. You are expendable and don't expect your length of service or performance will save you once you fall from grace. If you're already there, don't tell them where your going once you escape. HR will call your prospective employer and bad mouth your reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell and start a prison.

    Horrible work environment. Horrible mismanagement of people and other resources.

    Former Employee - QA Person in Rensselaer, NY

    I worked at AMRI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was close to where I lived? Nothing much else to say, really. 20 word minimum is required in the review. The Rensselaer plant, itself, will likely stick around for a while via being bought by another company. Otherwise, AMRI's stock is what, $3 as of writing this, and is still dropping.

    Cons

    Management unresponsive to problems.
    Many employees report non-responsiveness to issues between co-workers.
    Many co-workers jump ship early and often after finding a better gig.
    Too much inter-office/lab drama.
    Low pay. Correction: VERY low pay. Regeneron and GE pay more.
    No work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain talent. So far, you have utterly failed at that.
