    Great People. Tough Environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was constantly surrounded by great people on my team, which in this day and age is tough to find sometimes. They fought for you day in and day out, and even in tough years we bonded together and made progress as a team.

    ConsUpper Management picked their favorites early on and essentially discarded the rest of the team as far as career progress is concerned. All of the opportunities were essentially filled before they were even mentioned as open roles. This was incredibly frustrating to someone like myself who was stuck in the same job for four years. Very frustrating if you're not one of the favorites. (I've since moved on and been promoted twice within two years at my current Fortune 500 company.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromotional Opportunities should be given based on results and potential, not pre-disposed selection.

    The benefits were very good, but the working corporate environment was toxic.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGlobal presence--great benefit; benefits in general are excellent.

    ConsVery oriented towards regulations of everything done; some training and personal growth opportunities; chance for promotion very difficult because of politics.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Finance/ Accounting Co-Op

    Finance/Accounting Co-op (Former Employee) West Chester, PA

    ProsI definitely learned a great deal of things from the program. I had great mentors and visibility to leadership. It is beneficial, for all Finance/ Accounting Co-Ops to go through the FLDP if that is the direction you would like to continue in.

    ConsThe length of the program is only 6 months. Not enough time to make really big changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the program going. It opens so many doors for intelligent individuals.

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

    Good Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorked with them for two internships. Both experiences were fairly positive they are a good company and care about their employees.

    ConsThey dont always live up to their credo. They have an elitist attitude especially when it comes to quality but they have gotten in trouble with the FDA multiple times.
