    Pros

    Excellent health benefits. Non-senior executive employees are good people to work with.

    Cons

    Direction uncertain in certain areas of the business. One size does not fit all. Tablets and capsule manufacturing is not the same as aseptic manufacturing in the FFS industry. Sad to see the Napa facilty close.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could be a great place to work. Provide resources where its needed. The business process for quality lags for the sake of profits and corporate success mantra. Work life balance is not there yet for some organizations within Mylan.

    I worked at Mylan Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The cost accounting department had a couple of tremendeous supervisors/managers that made the experience worth it.
    Pay was reasonable and there was plenty of opportunity for over time to make up for the temp nature of the opening.

    Cons

    Human resources department took 6 months to post an opening that existed for 9 and in the end cost me an opportunity to stay on with the company. I accepted an offer elsewhere.

    Good pay, great benefits, HORRIBLE growth opportunities

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Morgantown, WV

    I worked at Mylan Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent. The health benefits are some of the best around.

    Cons

    If you are looking for growth opportunities, this company is not the place to be. The motto of the company on the production side is "it's not about what you know, but who you know". Morale is at an all time low, and there are a lot of unhappy employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place people in positions that they are qualified. Take advantage of employees who want to do great things for the company. They are a valuable resource that can go over looked.

    Management was not always the most efficient. Performance review process could be frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make performance review more reflective of an employee's contributions.

    I worked at Mylan Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    OK pay, tailgate for WVU football games, social events

    Cons

    Majority of employees are rude, on a high horse, or just don't care about you at all.
    Do not delegate right people to certain tasks (ex. training, management)
    Do not care to hear your ideas/input, their way is the way they will continue performing even though the industry is changing
    Too focused on the failure of rival companies instead of trying to excel themselves
    Make growth opportunities more accessible, too many people going for it -- along with new hires. Makes it impossible to move up unless you want to wait forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate training/coaching to the right employees. People who have good rapport, experience, and actually WANT to help the employee will do a better job than someone who is passed a long the job because of convienence.

    Pros

    Good health insurance, free coffee

    Cons

    So called "Open Door" Policy is just a way to identify the complainers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More stock options would pull the "family" back together.

    I can think of any cons for working at Mylan.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Mylan Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Best benefits in WV probably and most well known employer in the area.

    Cons

    Absolutely no personal life. Plan to spend most of your life and some weekends working without overtime pay (most are salaried) and make no prior commitments or you will be talked about behind your back. Would never recommend a friend to work here.

    Company is extremely top heavy as in everyone's a VP it seems so working your way up is difficult. Very old style of management and does not like change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If employees are going to be putting in such longer at least offer 3 weeks vacation instead of 2. Switch to casual dress code since its more comfortable to work all night in jeans.
