    I have been working at Hospira full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work life balance is excellent, flexibility is widely available. The team is very collaborative and cooperatively organized. My department is well managed and has well respected leadership. People respect each other and their time, they rely on each other and communicate very well so that the company's best interest is always being maintained.

    Cons

    taking out my own garbage is a bit odd and free coffee or tea would be nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I very much appreciate the work that is being done to turn the company around and rebuild Hospira's reputation. The gap that Hospira fills in the pharmaceutical industry is important and I'm proud to be part of the comeback team.

    Employer was good with employee's. Had open door policy, so can't think of anything negative. Did not care for the work schedule format.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Hospira. It was a very professional company. The company gives plenty of training to make sure you feel capable of all jobs.

    Cons

    Hospira has lots of work to do so those in manufacturing may have to work a lot of overtime. I didn't mind because they pay great for overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like how they hire people through Kelly Services now, but some of the people hired have bad attitudes.

    I have been working at Hospira full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits were great. I worked for a sub-company they acquired, and they largely left us alone to operate autonomously.

    Cons

    Terrible employee review process. Shoe-horned in to write goals for things that didn't apply to us.
