    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.

    Pros

    Company has awesome benefits, from medical coverage to educational reimbursement. If you are interested in going back to school and are willing to put in the work, Mylan will pay up to 100% of your education based on your grade.

    Cons

    Like any other company, there are always politics that go on and will always go on. My experience was that the pros of the company benefits outweighed the cons. There was limited room for advancement during my employment.

    Current Employee - Union Manufacturing  in  Morgantown, WV
    Current Employee - Union Manufacturing in Morgantown, WV

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are above average and most days the job is relatively easy even in one of the more difficult departments that I am in. I get paid more than many of the company employees such as chemists, etc. Especially, when overtime is factored in. There is certainly no reason to complain when people are outside digging ditches for much less. That doesn't stop people here from complaining though.

    Cons

    A lot of politics are involved in this job ever since the company went global and Puskar passed away. The treatment of employees has most certainly went down. The regulations being imposed by the company (the FDA is actually less stringent) have increased by a great margin. Most of the regulations are senseless and only in place to justify the jobs of the quality workers that enforce them. You also receive very little respect when wearing a union uniform and are treated as if you're a second class citizen at times, despite that fact that many in the union hold advanced degrees higher than the people managing them. It can definitely be discouraging at times. In the companies defense, many union employees are lazy and worthless and are most likely the reason we have come to be treated this way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep watching your employee's closely and treat those that actually do their job with respect and leave the degradation to the union employee's that do not. Communicate more efficiently and hire from within so future supervisor's and management employees aren't just guessing at how to run the company and actually have a background of what's involved.

    Strange company

    Current Employee - Middle Manager  in  Canonsburg, PA
    Current Employee - Middle Manager in Canonsburg, PA

    Pros

    Inspiring mission, compensation, can do attitude of the culture, good company to work for in a bad economy, location is great, low cost of living, good CEO

    Cons

    More SVPs per square inch than an investment bank, some SVPs very weak and/or poor leadership models but persist, very poor communication, weak HR function, very political environment. Long work weeks, not sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent management is an area to look into and improve. Need to improve communication and transparency - VPs seem afraid to cascade information down, unclear why this is but should be fixed.

    Not a stable environment.

    Former Employee - Manager  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Former Employee - Manager in Pittsburgh, PA

    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.

    Good enough...

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Engineer  in  Morgantown, WV
    Current Employee - Engineer in Morgantown, WV

    Pros

    Pay is competitive espicially for the area. Benefits are good. They offer free prescriptions and very cheap medical and vision insurance. They offer performance bonuses and christmas bonuses for the time being. A majority of the people who work there were born and raised in wv and therefore there is a real close-knit, family feel at work. Most everyone is friendly and works together well.

    Cons

    Over all, it seems annoyingly old-school. Days are slow, everything seems to take forever and change is an illusive creature that everyone tries to beat down.
    They seem to have an issue with promoting talent. Those in charge seem to have gotten where they are just because of their years of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote talent
