    Pros

    Good benefits, helpful HR department, and the company is expanding.

    Cons

    Political, slow advancement, no accountability, favoritism in groups

    Advice to Management

    Office culture is one of championing of mediocrity. Those that over-perform are left alone to do their work and are given kind words from their immediate supervisors, but no compensation or personal growth opportunities arise from being an over-producer. Those that skate by on a day to day are not held accountable, are not reprimanded, and the office culture seems to be that of, leave the mediocrity alone and work around it.

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

    Pros

    They always need employees in Denver so jobs can be found. Good location in Denver.

    Cons

    Poor management which is not dedicated to employees or performance. Management seems apathetic to employee complaints and morale. High employee turnover. Poor benefits. Low pay but high demands on employees. Over the last few years the plant has severely declined and no longer a comfortable working atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be changed. Management has become comfortable in their long-term jobs and no longer proactive and seemingly unconcerned with workers and their performance and concerns.
