I worked at The United States Pharmacopeia full-time

Pros

Retirement and health benefits. Location to the Metro.

Cons

Roger Williams is crazy. He fires people with little reason. If it weren't for Maryland's labor laws, I'm sure legal action could be taken against him. He could be endangering the publics health with his decisions. The board needs to take notice and get rid of him.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Impeach the CEO. Replace senior management and get back to USP's core mission and repeal all of Roger's decisions since he started.

    I worked at The United States Pharmacopeia

    Pros

    NIce Building .
    Public Health Mission.
    Good Benefits and Salary.
    Flexibility in work hours.
    Some competent staff but they are either completely ignored or fired.

    Cons

    Senior management is completely out of control, focused more on private enrichment and world travel than public health. Constantly tries to outsource US jobs overseas and has created a toxic environment where very little real work gets done. Waste and incompetence rewarded and encouraged, no accountability for major public health fiascos. A board that is either completely out of touch or completely misinformed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the entire senior management group. Focus on core mission to improve the quality of drugs and not the quality of senior management lifestyles. Stop outsourcing US jobs.

    I have been working at The United States Pharmacopeia

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent- generous 401k contributions, tuition reimbursement, health care, etc. This is a huge reason that people stay at this company and also a big part of the reason it is voted one of the best non profits to work for. There are many very experienced and smart people working here and the employees are extremely diverse.

    Cons

    Senior management is a complete embarrassment. One person runs the ship and ship goes willy nilly where ever he likes. If you don't agree you're thrown overboard. There is no expectation that senior management needs to act appropriately or competently in public, with stakeholders, or at any time as far as I can tell. The company is stuck in its ways in terms of technology, which keeps it from being competitive and fosters poor communication and silo-ing between departments and divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on stability, bring in business oriented leadership, improve the awful morale, and put some HR policies in place that value current employees rather than outside hires
