    Pros

    We are a newly acquired company of Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Have not worked long enough to know many pros. What can be said is they are maintaining our current pay structure and insurance offerings.

    Cons

    My position is being eliminated due to my being a synergy.

    Pros

    Definitely a growing innovative company with an executive team focused for growth.

    Cons

    There is not much room for growth or advancement within the manufacturing organization. Benefits are average.

    Advice to Management

    Management is definitely developing Mallinckrodt into a specialty pharma company but needs to not lose focus on the manufacturing roots that have sustained Mallinckrodt for almost 150 years.

    Pros

    Campus is very nice. Wages are competitive.

    Cons

    Your career depends on the company outlook and budget needs. Little to no warning for layoffs. Management is very uninvolved with performance appraisals and knowing what their staff do on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Fully evaluate your management. Get advise from peers as to who is best fit for upcoming openings. Approach those who deserve a promotion. Give employee evaluations regularly and on time at all levels in the organization.

    Pros

    MNK as it is called is a very ambitious company. It is very active in the M&A arena. The Stock price of the company has more than tripled form the time it spun off from Covidien almost a couple of years ago. It is a great place to work with a very collaborative work culture.

    Cons

    However, they pay very less and have a very rigid hierarchical culture which should be respected. A pretty conservative company as well.

    Pros

    Good income, freedom, pto, current up to date management systems

    Cons

    The company management is stuck in a fairytale world on how to manage the company. They belief in ignoring obvious issues that need addressing and instead reject problems based on the lack on process in parents ing the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real managers with a desire to succeed in there and get rid of the country club set.

    Pros

    The benefits are decent and workers care about each other a great deal. Many people have stuck it out for a long time.

    Cons

    Many employees been there for 20 years+. Difficult to break into the club. Management seems to get bogged down in politics.

    Advice to Management

    Try to think through your plan before acting on it. Very silly to fire people and then turn around and hire them back.
