I have been working at Hospira full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The work life balance is excellent, flexibility is widely available. The team is very collaborative and cooperatively organized. My department is well managed and has well respected leadership. People respect each other and their time, they rely on each other and communicate very well so that the company's best interest is always being maintained.

Cons

taking out my own garbage is a bit odd and free coffee or tea would be nice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I very much appreciate the work that is being done to turn the company around and rebuild Hospira's reputation. The gap that Hospira fills in the pharmaceutical industry is important and I'm proud to be part of the comeback team.

    No bonuses or perks unless you are high in organization chart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re structural the way you look at engineering, allow room for growth and give your engineers a reason to go an extra mile for you.

    I worked at Hospira full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good 401K and health benefits. Average or better than average for vacations, sick leaves and other types of leaves. Good co-workers, most of whom are "over-qualified" for the work they are doing.

    Good severance packages.

    Cons

    The place suffered from under-funding AND poor distribution of human resources.

    The atmosphere was awful. Even the newly hired wanted out within a few months. When long time employees got their layoff notices, instead of crying their eyes out, they all seem really happy like they just won the lottery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
