Pros

West Pharmaceutical is a great organization to work for because it is extremely focused on excellent customer service in the global markets in which it operate. In addition, West extends many benefits to its employees that are no longer offered by area employers. There are many opportunities within the organization for promotion and growth in all functional areas.

Cons

Communication can always be improved by management.

    Benefits under high pressure to perform

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Clearwater, FL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Clearwater, FL

    I have been working at West Pharmaceutical Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stock purchase plan, 401k with employer matching investment, air conditioned workspace, 80% dental, security cameras and entry points, bonuses based on team production levels. Uniforms provided for hourly workers.

    Cons

    Management is two-faced, (smiling while not caring about hourly employees), and prefer to remote manage and pass the buck on problems that arise. Point system keeps check on hourly employees and used as a firing tool. Points given for being 1 minute late, not calling off properly, leaving early, and missing clock-in among others. Improperly trained hourly workers due to management imposed deadlines resulting in costly time and equipment repairs. Payscale for skilled workers falls in the mid-range of same type work in surrounding industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Extremely poor project planning due to lack of experience of engineers and management. Commen sense decisions based on collective stupidity of teams are rushed and incomplete. This leaves most plant upgrades to merely follow suit of preceeding plants without a working knowledge of the particular situation. Extend point system to cover both hourly and salary people.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, overtime pay, breaks are fair, monthly meetings are long but informative. Cleaning and repairs are always done. Holiday breaks are scheduled accordingly. Cameras are installed inside and outside of buildings.

    Cons

    Not a good working environment, Workers constantly feuding with each other. Area managers very demanding and only concerned about production numbers. Recently discovered illegal gambling and drug deals in the parking lot!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be retrained in how to be more considerate and communicate better with workers.
