    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    you get free otc meds (not much)

    Cons

    All the top management care about is numbers, they don't know how to manage their resouces, keep talented people pipeting all day, they hire someone who claims to have multiple years experience, yet cannot seem to figure out the graduations on a pipet..... and yet, that should be someone talented, full of skills? Also, very low paying company and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, listen and listen to your employees

    I worked at Perrigo full-time

    Pros

    Perrigo is the largest name in generic OTC drugs. If you're in sales or manufacturing, it looks like a great place for a long-term career.

    Cons

    It's located in the middle of nowhere Michigan. Grand Rapids is about 45 miles away. Not much in the way of diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone looks alike and seem very similar in thinking. This is a company that could use some variations with respect to the entire workforce.

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great, work is pretty easy, great benefits.

    Cons

    Usually have to work off-shift in manufacturing for years before getting on to first shift, management is inconsistent among shifts. Management does not listen to suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    The manufacturing facilities are losing sight of it's quality procedures. Management thinks it's one way when in reality quality is not being followed. The deviations speak for themselves.

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start if you are unskilled Specialist pay is the best in the area Overall this has been better than other jobs I have had

    Cons

    Not about the workers or the customer Gets rid of those who drive modernization, stuck in the 1990's Lacks diversity Powerful groups, not management run much of the business. Oppose the short cuts they take and they may end your job. Seen that happen to good worker and to lots of temps. Company has turned it's back on America & is becoming a shadow of what it once was

    Advice to Management

    You have made your money. Now make us competitive again in Allegan. You have driven off those who make us better and supported those who make us worse. Looks like you may want to send our jobs to Ireland. Hope that is not the case.

    Pros

    Interesting projects and products. Friendly and helpful coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape and paperwork to get anything done, both because of regulations and sometimes excessive management oversight. Too much emphasis on squeaky wheels and one-time issues instead of long term impactful solutions.
