    Pros

    Plenty of overtime (if that's what you are looking for)
    Rewarding Work
    Fast-Paced

    Cons

    Upper management/SLT treats you like trash. They only care about making themselves look good. Making crazy decisions all the time. They pretend that they care about the safety of the employees but they truly do not. If safety delays manufacturing they will make up some lame excuse to continue. Also the SOPs seem to be a "suggestion" and are followed only when convenient. There is a very high turn over rate because this place does not know how to treat people correctly. There is no moving up unless you suck up to upper management. They will make promises at your interview only to make you stay in a department that you do not want to be in. Most of the people in upper management /SLT do not even have degrees and have no idea what they are doing. If you are looking for a job where you will complain about how miserable you are then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    My advice for AMRI (corporate office) is to come to Albuquerque and clean house and bring in new faces for our SLT and upper management.

    I worked at AMRI full-time

    Pros

    Would be interesting work if executive management knew how to run a business. Employees are mainly good, intelligent people.

    Cons

    Company has no idea what they are doing. Mass exodus occurred this year (and continues to occur) including at the management level, and there has been no effort to replace key positions. Instead, current employees are forced to take on additional responsibilities with NO additional pay. Or are led to false belief that the additional pay will come "someday." (Good luck with that). Great/easy way to reduce overhead and achieve their desired EBITDA, I guess.

    Lower/middle tier employees are overworked with inadequate pay. When site management promises raises, promotions, or new job openings, corporate will freeze funds or "defer" them indefinitely.

    Only senior management and the employees that they "like" deserve fair pay, bonuses, or raises apparently. Unprofessional, disruptive, and dictatorial managers are tolerated solely because they hit revenue targets.

    Very little transparency between senior management and employees who actually perform the work. Company cares only about revenue revenue revenue, but puts no thought into a plan to do so. Or rather, their plan is to work their employees to the ground until they can't take the abuse any more.

    Advice to Management

    AMRI has destroyed any positive industry reputation their individual sites have earned prior to their acquisition. Company is too far gone to be fixed.
