    Pros

    Nice campus in Lake Forest. Close to interstate and mall.

    Cons

    Penny wise and pound foolish. Hopefully, Pfizer will pluck out the prized products and close up shop on that den of evil. Good riddance, Hospira!

    Advice to Management

    The CFO ruined the company and sold off the pieces of what used to be something good. I hope karma eats you alive.

    Pros

    Being a high performer I am compensated well and seem to always find opportunities and recognition. Networking is extremely important as well.

    Cons

    If you don't have a large network it is challenging to become a part of the culture. Of then times people will leave at two years if they don't like it. Also a lot of new folks are just 'thrown' in to sink or swim without much mentorship or leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more transparent will all levels of the organization. Also need to bring more internal folks up to the top levels it will help with morale.

    401K retirement plan is decent and good

    Cons

    Extreme political. Managers/directors level up like to play favoritism game. Never pay attention to the employees, does not appreciate and they don't seems like care about their employee. Management team members have too many faces.

    Advice to Management

    Start to know the actual work yourself.

    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.
