    Do Not Work Here

    Inventory Control (Former Employee)
    North Wales, PA

    ProsHealth Benefits; No Layoffs while I was there.

    ConsManagement was horrendous, zero communication with them at all, no advancement from within the company. There was drug and alcohol abuse running rampant in the warehouse from higher management on down. Every time an employee brought up a problem to management their response was "Be lucky you have a job". There was also a lot of racism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront with people when you hire them. Tell them that the job you come in with is the job you will leave with. And please for the love of God find it in your heart to stop destroying people's lives.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unfulfilling career at Teva

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Frazer, PA

    ProsGreat co-workers. 401k is above average. Bonus is above average. Stock is going away

    ConsPromotions are only for a select few. HR is worthless and no development

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are a very uninspiring group of hacks!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was great working for Teva, I would still be there if it weren't for the downsizing.

    Manufacturing Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Pomona, NY

    ProsGood pay, they treated me fairly, working conditions were good

    ConsKnowing that you could possibly lose your job, keeping the moral of the workers was hard.

    Working at Teva

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Woodcliff Lake, NJ

    ProsThe people and relationships I developed over the years were great. We had a really good team in our last department, but they weren't rallied together as a whole department. Too much separation.

    ConsDepartment was lacking management/leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet on the same page and work together. Especially to get to know who the people are in your own department.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Just Stay Away

    Material Handler (Former Employee)
    North Wales, PA

    ProsGood Health Benefits, Good Supervisors that did care about their jobs and about the employees that worked for them.

    ConsEverything else, horrible pay, horrible un safe co-workers, active alcoholism and drug use during work hours by employees to which management said nothing and did nothing, ZERO room for job advancement, they claim they only hire from within but that's not true. They only promote from a "Hunger Games" style interview process. No support from HR, non union job so you're on your own if you have a problem. The slogan from upper management was "be lucky you have a job"

    Advice to Senior ManagementPray that God forgives you, because I won't. Worst two years of my life.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
