Pros

- Best paying biotech in the area.

- Decent benefits, but I've seen better years

Cons

- People are hired and promoted based on who they know, not what they know.

- Manufacturing is 24/7, with 10 hour days and overnight shifts. One of the worst night shifts works every Friday night into Saturday morning, which is a nightmare for any parent. Expect to spend years on the night shift if you start there.

- Very slow to hire. Some temps have been working here years without full-time prospects

- Growing company with a lot of growing pains that need to be worked out. GMP documents need a lot of work. "Fly by wire" manufacturing with a lot of pitfalls for technicians

- Lots of overtime, could be a good thing or bad thing.

- Upper management out of touch with the "donut makers"

    Good work life balance. Good place for biotech in MD area

    More importance to PhD than work experience. Hard to get career advancement easily.

    Advice to Management

    Work on gap analysis between upper management and workers. Lack of communication and guidance in most departments

    They remind you frequently that you are easily replaced.

    Pros

    They take people with little or no experience. You can avoid working all together if you hide out from your responsibility. If you negotiate you can make more than other people on shift and make your own days and hours.

    Cons

    They treat you like you can be replaced immediately. They ask you to change shifts and hours almost at random. You will get stuck doing the same job unless you complain or you make enough mistakes that they decide it's better to move you. Most of the people that work here don't know how to do their job and a few people carry the rest of the shift.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people that don't know how to do their job and review people more frequently to make sure they understand the SOPs.
