    I worked at Ben Venue

    Pros

    Independent working environment. Many opportunities to learn. Perks like Chef in cafeteria and giveaways. Company parties and meetings to boost moral. Bonuses were pretty good. Get one year in and you can work anywhere. Great if you can multitask and want to achieve a lot. Will promote you if you work hard and are not a complainer or one who makes a lot of mistakes.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours not compensated for. Expected to perform tests without proper equipment ot\r equipment that was not working properly. Chemists were blamed for all QC tests that didnt pass and punished. Management never assumed raw materials could be bad or medicine contaminated from another part of plant. I had to teach myself most of the tesing I did. It worked for me but if you need supervised dont count on it. Noone has time. You are thrown in the lab after reading dozens of SOP's which do not help you do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This isn't fast food. Errors, missing raw materials and other QC problems should be taken seriously not ignored you blamed on chemist. All materials were assumed to be good no bad results were accepted or tolerated. Guess what you can't manufat\cture the medicine anymore because it was all about how fast and how much you could get out without concern for medicine being adequate.

    I worked at Ben Venue

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules (if your role allows), food in the cafeteria was good, especially the salad bar, prescription drug costs.

    Cons

    True condition of the company was shocking to discover upon new hire. Unnecessary extreme stress and poor moral was rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Process promotions in a timely manner, give people an hour for lunch, do something drastic to improve quality and culture.
