    Finance Consultant at private, specialty biopharmaceutical/medical device company.

    Finance Consultant (Current Employee)
    Hampton, NJ

    ProsValuable entry-level finance experience working in a fast-paced corporate enviornment, great workplace environment and culture, small private company translated to more responsibilities and a larger scope as an employee, experience with ERP systems and Excel

    ConsContract employee with hourly wage and no benefits or paid vacation, lack of communication among managers concerning my responsibities and work load, strong emphasis on temporary contracts and not long term employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should be more cognizant of their temporary and contracted employees. These contracted employees, including myself, range from entry-level administrative positions to upper level R&D and medical positions. Those of us who have a lesser role in the company are often neglected in terms of career opportunities and the ability to to acheive a full time position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poorly managed company

    Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsGood product that helps people.

    ConsPoorly managed facilities, treat branch employess poorly, expectations unrealistic for drivers, do not respect employees that deliver product or their feed back. No work / life balance. Manage by intimidation. Lot's of turnover - expect those that are loyal to take up the slack.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some leadership courses and listen to your employees. Management mistakes shouldn't be taken out on those that support the company. Respect your employees, it goes a long way.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good benefits and great product, but horrible management and morale

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Clinton, NJ

    ProsProduct saves lives
    Products in pipeline could save even more lives

    ConsMorale is horrible in the company
    Turnover rate is over 25% (people leaving or being "let go")
    Management does not live by the culture they have been trying to create for the organization behind close doors
    Only marketed product is going off patent in a little over a year

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example.
    Words only mean so much. If there is no action, you will not have any believers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A high-tech and competitive place to work, both internally and in the marketplace.
