    I worked at West-Ward Pharmaceutical Corp full-time

    Pros

    Ironically, company continues to grow. Must be because the people in manufacturing are doing a decent job and the pricing is comparable to the competition (with the exception of where they gauge customers during drug shortages)

    Cons

    Weak management both locally and globally, unethical, and pompous. Eventually, the growth of the company will catch up and surpass Management's lack of skill and experience so finally their inadequacies as a Team will be exposed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people smarter than yourselves. Shouldn't be tough to do.

    Pros

    great location, pay and benefits. Diversity. Tolerance

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons! I worked in a department where everybody worked as a team! A little bit of favoritism here and there but other than that, it was a fun place to work in

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Pay attention to their complaints and at least pretend to act on them! A happy content worker is a productive one! Bring back those incentives from Baxter that you took away. Get more people in HR to hasten responses to employees looking for answers

    Pros

    The people dynamic is positive. Employees do value their roles and jobs. Easy to get along with. One can wear many hats in his/her role. Health care benefits are paid for by the company. Year end bonuses. A good place to get hands on experience because it is a producing facility. Growing Establishment.

    Cons

    Salary is very low. No flexibility with vacation/ personal/ sick time. Taking time off is frowned upon. Management cannot make a decision about any processes put into place so mistakes occur because there is always an exception to consider. Micromanagement occurs here too.
