    Pros

    Good benefits, can work at home.

    You will always be called on vacation because there are no trained backups.
    To make sales they shove inventory down the customers throat to bump the sales teams bonus.

    Advice to Management

    If 4 people flee the company under the same manager, evaluate the manager.

    Pros

    Good insurance, some very good people working at the mid range positions, okay 401k, bonuses pretty fair.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on MBA's and not enough on common sense and actual real world experience, high stress, long hours, overtime is off the charts, filthy working conditions (outside the main office, of course), a lot of HR issues just waiting to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Clean it up - both physically and ethically.

    Pros

    Great Work/Life balance, opportunity for growth, great Insurance if not one of the best in the industry, company always had company events to promote camaraderie among coworkers. During the holidays the company would give gift to employees for their performance and to increase moral and future performance. Pay was great and very competitive in the industry. Great leadership and effective evaluation of individual performance which led to people wanting to be employee of the month.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of red tape involve if your wanted to make improvements or changes to anything that affected the manufacturing process or engineering process. A whole lot of paperwork since there has to be records for all things done from mixing, tablet pressing, weighing materials, changing out engineering components, any calibration procedures done and other redundant work. Only saw a few people leave because of the red tape involve and lack of growth in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, The pharmaceutical business is a tough industry that requires a lot of protocols, while it may not always produce the greatest working environment, as long as people are happy, then their shouldn't be any problems

    Pros

    High compensation potential if you make your number (no matter how including questionable financial manipulation). Fast progression possible (which advances incompetent people). Some people are great (though miserable).

    Cons

    Upper management has no ethics or values beyond 'making the number' which causes very questionable and damaging decisions and culture. Little competency at top of org - they're all young and inexperienced and terrible people without values. Brands are terrible and poorly supported.

    Advice to Management

    Learn ethics.
