    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and try new things. Can have an impact on the direction of work programmes.
    Mostly, colleagues are a good bunch who will help each other out.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape which stifles creativity, hinders work programmes and slows down the decision making process.

    Try to remove the road blocks, put effort inot implementing an efficient system.

    Pros

    The company is friendly + accepting
    Flexible hours

    Cons

    Work is repetitive, little responsibility given to team members. Workload is poorly organized and communicated.
    Poor pay
    Skills and knowledge of staff not taken advantage of.
    Few development opportunities with 'promotions' being largely superficial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Surely you want more from us than this?

  3.  

    A stopgap job at best

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Pharmaceutical Scientist  in  Chippenham, South West England, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Pharmaceutical Scientist in Chippenham, South West England, England (UK)

    Pros

    The workers are a great bunch of people, otherwise it is just a place to earn a living.

    Cons

    Constant demotivation, highly repetitive work. Senior management do not appear to understand that the shareholders are not the people doing the work. Having to listen to the suits amking their announcements in "business speak" rather than using English is exceptionally irrritating too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employess with the respect they deserve - remember a lot of them are probably smarter than you are. Tokenism such as summer barbecues as seen as a joke by the majority of the staff.
