I felt we accomplished much success in growing the company...what we did was important and saved lives everyday.

Pros

The end result of our work. The people at APP - FK were great to work with. Compensation is very good.

Cons

The purge of departments after the acquisition of Fenwal (medical device company). Good move for FK from a business perspective. Too many FK folks were run off and replaced by Fenwal people that did not have the business knowledge in pharmaceuticals. The transition was hasty and not thought through. Excessive negative impacts to Accounts Payable; Finance and Controlling; Supply Chain Management. Work to life balance is now "Live to work, not work to live".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company has had solid footing and continually produced sales and profit gains. The Fenwal/FK integration did not appear to be planned well. Short-sighted and moved too fast resulting in a loss of productive people with much business intelligence.

    Pros

    Great benefits, ability to move up, bonuses.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to know how to deal with their people better..."a few" are very disrespectful. For a manager to come up to a table and speak to everyone but you (when you have worked under before) is completely unprofessional and rude. That is some of the managers that they have in this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take people classes.

    Pros

    Great benefits and health insurance. Personal growth can be had with the right manager.

    Cons

    Be prepared to wear multiple hats, which is surprising for the size of the company. Organizational structure changes constantly. My personal experience was that I was held back by my manager because of my software expertise (SAP MM) which my manager did not have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an open mind when getting suggestions from lower level employees and be careful of mid level managers keeping highly motiviated and exceptional employees right where they are to make them look better.
