    I have been working at AMRI full-time

    Pros

    Good colleagues. Fast learning pace. Great variety of projects.

    Cons

    Heavy work load, not enough people. Too many experienced people lost in recent years, the ones left are stretched to the min limit. Too many inexperienced new employees, which are expected to get trained and work at the highest level in a very short time.

    Advice to Management

    Reward better the hard workers, not just the ones that say "yes sir" and pass the workload to the lower levels.
