I have been working at Ben Venue full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

This company offers Good salary and benefits. The 401K and pension plan is excellent. Compensation is tops in the industry for hires with experience. Many opportunities for advancement

Cons

Long hours and working every weekend. No work/life balance. Cost is out of control and management has no clue what is going on until doors about to be closed. Internal promotions are not compensated well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of all the people from the past. offer them early retirement so new thinking and culture can take place. Change needs to happen quickly before parent company wakes up and realize BVL is eating their profits.

    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.
