Consistent inability to execute with no end in sight

Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

ProsBosses don't micromanage, pay and benefits are still lower than expected in the area, but are still pretty good. They will only release quality product.

ConsBosses don't macro-manage. Constant 6 day work weeks are used to compensate for poorly maintained equipment. Management cannot get the support that is needed to stabilize/secure the ability to produce into the future.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that you can't keep up with current regulatory and GMP trends with equipment that was built in the 70s and 80s. Lots of help is needed to recover from the Tyco days.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
