Pros

Fast paced environment. Growing company. Profitable company. Opportunities for growth and advancement. High performance rewarded. Management tries to communicate. Potential for company to keep growing.

Cons

Politics and red tape can be frustrating. Priorities in work change frequently. Not enough resources for all the work asked to do. Ugly fence around campus in lansing. Too many people try to be involved in too much - sometimes micro management. Quirky company culture at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep improving in communication. Try not to micro manage. Keep rewarding high performance. Don't come down too hard on mistakes - try to empower employees, give boundaries to operate within, and then let employees do their work.

    Pros

    They hand you as much responsibility as you want to handle. So there is a lot of challenge. Lots of communication. They are willing to give the resources to get the job done. Very encouraging of personal and professional development. Great experience in cGMP environment.

    Cons

    There has been few people that were promoted from within to management that are not qualified for the job, therefore driving some employees out of the company. At times management can be indecisive about what they want for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting from within needs to be taken very seriously to put the right person in the right position

    Pros

    Perhaps the company is good to obtain job experience for straight out of college. Company half of the wellness expenses and covers the public transport.

    Cons

    A Sr. director hires almost exclusively people from the company that he used to work with. Hiring process in these instances is unethical, as sometimes the positions are filled without even advertising, causing resentment and affects the morale.
    Initiatives such as 6 sigma and lean are lame at the best and utterly counter-productive. It's more about presentation than about actual improvements.
    Management talks about core values but does complete opposite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least stop pretending that you care as there is obvious discrepancy between what you say and what you do.
