    Pros

    people are friendly, facility is new and nice.

    Cons

    -high and unrealistic expectations, with big pharma expectation on employee but pay much less.
    -working hard or put extra effort is your job, won't get you anywhere, except your boss likes you.
    -the managements think people from outside are always better than people there, they rather hire someone else than promote people within, not recommend someone who wants to have a stable (growing) career.

  2. If career stability is a concern, be conscious that West Pharma has regular layoffs.

    Pros

    Compensation in line with regional medical devices and medical services companies.

    Cons

    It's a fact that West Pharmaceutical has had regular layoffs so if career stability is a concern, be careful. Management uses layoffs often to increase share price, which has worked. But it has left hundreds of hard working employees out of a job. May be suitable if you're only looking for a short term position.

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees.
