I have been working at Sovereign Pharmaceuticals full-time
Pretty good work life balance. Expectations of employees are reasonable, and you are not blamed if something goes wrong that is out of your control. Many of the co-workers are hard-working, awesome people. Turnover rate is high, which creates opportunities for new employees to gain experience (both a pro and con). Although it can be busy at times, stress levels are not too high. Overall this is a good place to get entry level experience, and you won't be overworked.
The company has been doing poorly in the last few years (2012-2015), and this reflects in pay. Pay is below industry average. Layoffs occur about once a year, sometimes more frequently. Once you have been hired, dpn't expect any significant salary increases- those are reserved for attracting talent to replace the people who get laid off or quit. Turnover rate is high. From what I understand, it was not always like this, as some of the employees who have been around for 5+ years make good money. No telling when/if profits will increase.
Advice to Management
Give respectable salary increases or people will continue to leave for greener pastures.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sovereign Pharmaceuticals (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2014.
They just look at my resume told me what they payed witch is very low for the responsibility with government documents, packaging,. clean room environment. , and all the machine you have to be proficient on.
