    Pros

    People were very friendly and the environment was welcoming. I supported several departments, and each one was very respectful of each other.

    Cons

    The only downside is that many of us were hired on as contractors. So when the budget gets cut, we are the first to go. It's a shame that we can't prove ourselves and get hired on as permanent.

    Pros

    Hospira Rocky Mount is supportive and flexible. I truly believe they look out for their employees.

    Cons

    It is a regulated industry which makes everything take more effort. Also they are being purchased by Pfizer so some things are up in the air.

    Pros

    A lot of emphasis is placed on employee development at all levels. This is tuned to the individual so as to give improved results.

    Cons

    Sometimes when companies get large, silos develop that hamper communication across functions.

    Advice to Management

    Casual Fridays are a great way to allow employees at all levels to "relax" just a wee bit but the company gains this back 2 fold in higher energy at the end of a work week.
