    I worked at Mylan Inc full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay for the area is good. Bonus and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Massive confusion at all levels with constant turnover. Burnout is a HUGE problem. No work life balance, and there are too many managers. Unrealistic expectations given current staffing levels. No compensation given for on call hours or evening hours. If you have a family look elsewhere. If you are single, and don't mind working all the time, then you might enjoy it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the extra levels of management. Have the managers get their heads out of the clouds, and focus more on the needs of your employees. You're burning them out due to insufficient staff levels and unrealistic expectations. Compensate your salaried employees for weekend and after hours work.

    Pros

    The benefits are good, and the pay is decent. You get to work with some great and talented people.

    Cons

    After founder Mike Puskar left the board of directors and passed away, the company has gone from a people oriented company to a profit at all costs company. Other comments about high stress, required availability at all hours, and no work-life balance are right on the money. They work you until you burn out and then replace you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the values established by the founders of the company.

    I have been working at Mylan Inc full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fast growing company with many positive "Visions". Salary is higher than most companies in the area. Great benefits.

    Cons

    No team effort. "Everyone for themselves" atmosphere. Very "Top Heavy". It seems like there is a Manager, Director, SR. Director , VP, Sr VP or president for every two employees. Individuals are promoted or hired based on "who you know" not actual qualifications. Always seems to be an unspoken threat of termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to spend more time developing employees and less time in conference calls. Very little communication with new employees, provide more feed back on job performance and training progress. Stop the "fear" mongering.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Holidays
    Free meal once a summer
    Holiday party
    Health unit

    Cons

    No work life balance, stuck in old ways. Many employees are just looking towards retirement and not willing to look outside the box. Production is often given tasks with little direction on how to proceed and expected to figure it out. Management says they do not pressure employees, but pressure is on all the time.

    Pros

    Strong company with a strong future

    Cons

    The leadership at Mylan does not care about their employees. They lead with fear rather than respect. Even within the departments, everyone looks to put the blame on someone else and no one hesitates to throw a colleague under the bus to save their own behind. The culture is defeating. Lots of yelling, swearing and name calling from the top down - no respect for employees whatsoever.

    I worked at Mylan Inc

    Pros

    The pay is competitive and the benefits are good. It is a fast paced environment with a lot of opportunities to learn new things and be on high profile projects. Great tuition reimbursement program.

    Cons

    There is little work/life balance and spending time with your family or having other obligations is looked down upon. People lose their jobs left and right and everyone is looking over their shoulders. Their is not a collaborative feel in the workforce because it is everyone for themselves. People are becoming a product of their environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Don't just say people are our most important asset-mean it and act as though it were true.

    I worked at Mylan Inc full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has some excellent, dedicated employees who take pride in their efforts. For the majority of employees it is an excellent place to work. Benefits are very good, but the further you are away from senior management the better the opportunity is.

    Cons

    Compensation is less than many comparables. Senior leadership has no concept of time - they put in long hours but much is wasted due to poor time management. The higher you ascend the better the pay, but senior leadership is "challenging" (there are other, less kind ways to say this). I would only recommend working here if you are not in a senior position. Or if you are a personal friend of the CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the concept of not micromanaging every effort of the senior employees who are assumably in place to make those decisions themselves. Learn time management. It will make you and everyone else more productive.
