    Revolving door (management) They are under paid and over worked. Not given authority but held accountable. Not trained at all.

    Pros

    Projects are very active so tremendous experience in product development. Also, most managers seem talented and one can learn a lot from them too. Employee stock purchase plan lets employees benefit from company efforts to squeeze every penny out of everything. Bonuses, recognition, and promotions seem reachable

    Cons

    User unfriendly computer systems and excess computer security interfere with being efficient. Also, expect to work very hard and age quickly with how everything needs to be done right away, and frequently work on evenings, weekends, and while on vacation, though it is great experience. Teva is truly out to make money, so they are often restructuring and eliminating groups. The benefits are good, but are totally outsourced, so if you ever have a problem, good luck with getting answers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell IT to stop hindering our productivity by blocking tools that made us as efficient as why you hired us. Also, really need to get better computer systems. Kind of hypocritical to some of the north star computer related goals of the company and wastes so much time in a job that asks so much of us. Also, hire a better benefit advocate company. Finally, I hope with all this cut, cut, cut, and not integrating across departments, that some major safety, quality, or important detail for a product under development doesn't get overlooked and Teva comes crashing down.

    Pros

    Great coworkers at Cincinnati site, clean and modern facility

    Cons

    No real opportunities for pay raises as a Manufacturing Technician , even after being there within same position for a few years. You have to learn another manufacturing department/equipment and be signed off to advance to Technician 2 but no real opportunities for cross training since we are always sent to packaging to help out, on slow days. You have to be persistent with some management so you can actually be cross trained within Manufacturing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't micromanage as much..esp with the "coach" positions, which are set in place to aid supervisors but at times seems to be a glorified baby sitter position.

    Pros

    They had heat in the winter, and AC in the summer. Also 4 walls and a roof. That's about it.

    Cons

    It's truly the worst company in America. Very evil empire mindset. I got great reviews from my boss, but was not hired on the 20 internal positions I interviewed on. If you're not related to anyone there don't bother, youre life will be miserable. Also don't bother applying the interview process is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't give advice to people without souls.

    Management in Patient Services are micro-managers and show favoritism all the time

    Pros

    The employees are great. Employees have a chance to better themselves through some of the benefits the company offers.

    Cons

    Management staff are uncover racists. They ask why you do certain things but do not have a clue on how to manage people from different backgrounds. Make very direct comments with no substance. Always want the spotlight but have no clear direction. Several employees have documented on several occasions of what they have experience from certain managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look what you have in management in Patient Services. There are a lot of things that go on that really could amount to a lawsuit for discrimination.

  11. Difficult to get recognition for accomplishments; manager is untrustworthy

    I have been working at Teva Pharmaceuticals USA

    Pros

    Good pay, tuition reimbursement, good medical & dental benefits, annual bonus, 401k with excellent company match, profit sharing plan, employee stock purchase plan

    Cons

    The ones who get promoted in Patient Services are the ones who don't do any actual work themselves. Manager makes clear promises to get you to work hard on new projects, but then reneges on those promises. You can go thru entire interview process and wait 3-4 months before getting an offer or hearing the position is now filled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your values are respect, integrity, leadership, then treat people with those values throughout the interview/hiring process. If you post a position, then conduct your interviews and make an offer within a month. Don't drag it out and force people to wait in limbo for months. That's rude and how you lose your best candidates. Before promoting someone to Assoc Director, do a 360-degree review to discover ALL sides and verify that the person is actually worthy of the promotion. Quit promoting people who are terrible people managers.
