I have been working at AMRI full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

New CFO is driving positive change. Unfortunately, this has meant some cuts and shutting down of unprofitable divisions but this is long past due. Despite what somebody posted, the medical benefits are excellent and are the best of I have ever had. 2013 rates did not go up with the excpetion of a small increase in dental (less than $1). I find everyone to be professional and easy to work with. Stock price seems to be supporting the positive changes.

Cons

The organization is still top heavy. Along with that, some of these more senior people continue to try and run things like a mom and pop shop because they have been here since the early days. Advancement opportunities are lacking but this seems to be driven more by economic conditions versus anything company related.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reach out to the employees and see what they are thinking. They may have some great ideas or can provide additional insight that can help move us in the positive direction.

    I worked at AMRI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Experience for the resume. That's about it.

    Cons

    Poor management. Top Heavy. Little vacation time. Terrible facilities. Low pay. Company pushes employees to work long hours. Micromanagers. Continued exportation of jobs over seas. Very poor benefits package. Employees don't receive incentives or praise when it's due.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees decent salaries and treat them like real people to get better productivity, healthier work environment, and reduce turn over. People don't seem to stay at this company unless they are tied down to the area, and with just cause.

    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...
