I have been working at West Pharmaceutical Services

Pros

Management is supportive, respectful, and professional. You are almost treated as a friend/family while maintaining a professional atmosphere. This is an organization where a VP would have no problem talking to someone in the lower ranks. Compensated properly if you work hard and show results.

Cons

Flat hierarchy structure and small management teams at satellite facilities create limited career advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Good internal training and employees are encouraged to further their education. Advancement opportunities do exist, and hr is very supportive.

    Cons

    Attendance policy is ridiculously strict - one of the worst I've come across. PTO is a little on the llight side. Employee population at each plant is small so while advancement opportunities exist, they are limited by the small number of employees and consequently small number of openings that come up. Communication is sometimes not the best between mid management and front line employees. Any strategy for mapping out your career has to be done by the employee - if you wait for management to help you chart a path you will flounder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your draconian attendance policy will drive away good employees who don't have to put up with it. Up the PTO to match industry standards for companies your size. Create a more structured path to develop internal talent.
