Pros

Ich hatte tolle Teamkollegen. Die Haltung und Beziehungen unserer lokalen Abteilung waren toll.

I had great team mates. The attitude and relations in our local division were fantastic.

Cons

Es handelt sich um einen großen internationalen Konzern in vielen Branchen und mit Abteilungen auf der ganzen Welt. Die Kommunikation zwischen den verschiedenen Standorten kann langsam und unzusammenhängend sein.

It is a massive international concern in many industries and with divisions separated all over the world. Communication between different sites can be sluggish and disjointed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Weiter an der Kommunikation arbeiten.

    I have been working at Lonza full-time

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits (medical, dental, vision).
    Fully vested in 401K from start date of employment with generous company match.
    Short-term and long-term International opportunities at other Lonza sites, even for non-Ph.D. or non-managerial/supervisory laboratory personnel.
    Strong safety-oriented corporate culture.
    Strong emphasis on 6-sigma lean efficient operations.

    Cons

    Passive/defensive culture versus aggressive, industry-leading orientation.
    Contract company cost-cutting/savings orientation with matching cost-conscious contract company pay.
    High personnel turn-over due to temp workers finding jobs elsewhere, permanent employees findings opportunities with other departments, or permanent employees finding higher paying jobs outside of the company is a problem.
    Stressed managers/supervisors who are pulled in multiple directions.
    Very lean organization, perhaps a little too lean. There a strong reliance on using temp/contract workers to cut costs which leads to loss of valuable experienced personnel when said workers find permanent positions elsewhere.
    Training can be a "catch-as-you-can" situation, which is a problem in a GMP environment.
