    Pros

    They money was good and the work was not that hard.

    Cons

    No direction when it come to over all plain. Each department will not communicate with each other unless forced to do so. They just do not fallow (FDA) regulation for the most part. No matter how much they are willing to pay you they will not list to you professional advice. IPAX Lab is a blame game factory, no matter how poorly the management plan and implant a project it always the contractor fail, "So, if you are a contractor take the money and run".

    Advice to Management

    To white, too old and too out of touch to be effect in any capacity.

    Pros

    Learned the basics of solid dosage manufacturing and GMPs Gave me something to put on my resume as a new grad Favorites - I was lucky to be a favorite as such I got hands on office experience and access to engineering project I could put on my resume

    Cons

    Salary- very low (less than $15/hr) Growth opportunity- they lie to college grads. yes you will see 2-3 people who use to be techs in higher level positions but thats 2-3 out of hundreds if not thousands that left the company because of no growth Favorites- if your not one of the lucky people that becomes a favorite you will essentially be stuck cleaning rooms

    Advice to Management

    Non- They are in it for the money and no matter how crappy a job they do they still get there money so why even suggest improvements when they dont care.

    Pros

    Very good pay. Just got my review and now making more than $40 an hour as a warehouse associate. Honestly shouldn't get that much. I don't know what data they are looking to justify the pay rates or may be who you know.

    Cons

    Unprofessional Management with big time favoritism. It is all who you know and your brown nose. Specially supply chain. We haven't made anything. Product is changing on daily basis. We load Kanban and next day pulled back. Planning please do good job. It is frustrating. We want to make something...

    Advice to Management

    Start speaking English and hire Americans. Plan ahead and then provide clear directions. You are in America-California

    Pros

    Pay is very good. They are paying me $37.50 as warehouse worker. Making this much without doing any hard work is the best Pro I can say. I have never seen any company pay more than $25 to this label job in the mark. Rather than high pay I don’t see any other benefit.

    Cons

    Micromanaged very unprofessional management. My manager always kissing upper management. He never care about his employees. No clear directions, product is changing on daily basis and out-put.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some professionals from silicon valley. I mean to say local experienced people. Many of them you have barely speak English.

    Pros

    The only reason why i come to work is the pay which is only the industry avg. but still the best pay i have had in my working career (3 yrs)

    Cons

    The WHOLE DAMN COMPANY! The people, for one, are soo rude and cant speak english. I cant even understand them half the time! All my coworkers are filipino (95%). Its terrible. And their training program sucks! They have no structure. Maybe its because ive come from a big biotech company like genentech and down to a small company like this. Ive only beeen working there for a month and i already hate it. Ive done nothing but clean. 90% of the job is cleaning and the rest is working with the drug. They could hire anybody off the street to do this job. I only recommend this job if you are fresh out of college and need experience. Other than that, avoid it like the plague

    Advice to Management

    Training program needs more structure. Hire more diverse people other than filipino
