    the culture will be a disappointed aspect, if you get used to work in the big pharma, as here is start from scratch with lots of non-english speakers in the facility.

    I worked at Tris Pharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Close to Highway and restaurants. More people than required. Almost 25% more employees compare to out put.

    Cons

    Current employee reviews is not fair. I must say I resign from the company ,I am not fired.
    In review it is not mention that there is Indian, Chinese and Caucasians culture in the company. Racism is main target of all reviews I read here and it is true. Most employee hire from the same company from where Quality head is coming from with less experience and no experience in liquid technology with higher salary compare to old employees with much experience and more knowledge. Salary raise is not given regularly to all employees base on performance. Most bonus is not more than 3%.whole quality department is (95%) in hands of Caucasians. this is not good all departments must have mix race people to be equal opportunity employer. I worked with more than 10 companies in last 30 years which include multinational, medium size and small size companies never seen this kind of atmosphere where every one feels insecurity for the job. Company has zero tolerance policy is not bad but it applies to all from top to bottom level but for particular race human error is accepted and for others it is not and they are fired. Clean and big facility is not only required in pharmaceuticals but need accountability of materials and good and accurate documentation practice is required. what ever language you speaks, makes no difference on product quality. sometimes that helps people to get clear understanding of working. Technical knowledge of management persons is not up to the standard. Just Think in last two years approx.more than 250 people either quit or fired which includes presidents and managers. Does any good company has such a track? So many people from reputed companies joined Tris with lots of hopes but they won't fit in the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To run a company is one thing and to build a good reputation is another thing. CEO must involve in day to day management instead of blindly trusting a group of certain people.

    I have been working at Tris Pharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Advanced technologies on the analytical side, close proximity to a wide variety of restaurants and bars.

    Cons

    Firstly every negative review on here has pretty much touched on one aspect or another of this abysmal, near criminal enterprise. English is rarely spoken in various departments, including manufacturing. Incompetence reigns supreme and anyone not willing to at the very least turn a blind eye to the shady dealings middle and upper management engage in has no chance of advancement. The CEO himself is the driving force behind the utter disregard for law, procedure, and rules in general. Do not subject yourself to this place if you can help it, if you are sponsored for a visa you will be exploited beyond reason and law to a degree would put blood diamond production to shame. Do not work here, simply do not do it. Try to extend your unemployment, work a temp job, go into food service, pan handle, be homeless, or become a test subject for a clinical trial for lethal injection medication before you work at this place. If you do work there, trust no one. Anyone in a position of authority tells lies on a scale that would make Satan himself blush. Don't even think the money might let you forget this stuff, because if you are not directly involved in their devious behavior, you likely make far below industry average.

    I have been working at Tris Pharma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are NONE. The place is awful. No standards what so ever to be found here.
    Worst of everything: pay, benefits, bonus, work life balance, and safety. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL !

    Cons

    The place is filthy and Disgusting! I would not serve their products to inmates in jail. Their equipment is falling apart. Maybe they should stop buying junk equipment from India. I can not believe the FDA has not shut this place down. They do not pay their bills and they have no shame about it. It's no wonder the vendors that do work with them are at the bottom of the barrel. There is more than enough harassment, racism, and discrimination to go around for everyone. They abuse all the people here on Visa's. They are basically the company slave labor. Deplorable work conditions and even worse hours for those people. Their CEO is the biggest cheapskate. You can clearly see it in how the place is run. Its a total dump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your CEO is known as a cheapskate in this industry. Hence why no one with talent stays longer than they have to. It trickles downs to all levels. Your facility is deplorable. Everything is done on the cheap and safety is joke. I don't know him personally but I have heard enough managers tell me that the one single reason why this place is run so bad is due to him and his cheapskate mentality.

    Pros

    You can learn to speak Hindi and Chinese very quickly.

    Cons

    PD is playing pin the tail on the horse while Analytical is playing piñata.
    Benefits are way below industry average.
    Super high turnover rate.
    Employees are expected to work long hours, weekends, holidays and state of emergency.
    A salary that is well below industry average, worse if you are not an United States citizen.
    High tolerance for sexual harassment, racism, discrimination and violence.
    Extreme favoritism towards caucasians.
    *** kissing is a wise career choice here.

    Pros

    Interesting technology
    Decent products in pipeline, but based on product development - little to no chance that they will work
    Strong quality and compliance
    A few strong leaders in senior management but seem to have their hands tied

    Cons

    R&D has no idea what is going on - clueless
    No chance to validate poor processes
    Communication is horrible
    Salaries are low and yes, benefits are way below industry average
    Employees are expected to work long hours, weekends and holidays
    Too much "fire fighting" and no planning
    Don't expect bonuses this year or the next few years
    Do we even have an IS group???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Still trying to outgrow the past, but need more management changes
    Need to stop protecting legacy employees - keep replacing
    Focus on improving safety
    Treat employees better, they are your best asset
    Try to be a little conservative once in a while

    I worked at Tris Pharma full-time

    Pros

    Situated near New Brunswick and Princeton, there are numerous good restaurants and diners nearby.

    Multiculturalism is embraced, in that an astounding variety of foreign languages are both spoken and shouted across laboratories and hallways.

    Cons

    Most criticism can be attributed to rapid expansion:

    Declining Morale

    Compromised Quality

    Loss of Connection with Employees

    Lack of Organizational Clarity

    Inexperienced Employees

    Broken or Nonexistent Infrastructure

    Lack of Communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seems actively disengaged.
