    Pros

    There are excellent opportunities to move forward...if you know the right people. They try to give some incentives mainly for the production section. This is a 24 facility so your hours can be flexible. Overtime is always available for those who need the extra money.

    Cons

    Upper management needs serious people skills. The management that I have previously worked under try to degrade people and make them feel inferior. Some people need their jobs and have to put up with the abuse. I am finally under different management that actually acts like they care. If one does not like you they will hold you back.

    Pros

    It's a very good environment, very clean, easy to learn and most of all it's a very good experience learning new things about medication.

    Cons

    The bad thing about this place is that they have bad night shift management and some machine operators with none self respect or with no sort of education treating employees like garbage. And final you can work there for years, work harder then others or double the work and not even earn a decent raise.

    Experience not worth the sacrifices

    Pros

    Health benefits are pretty good, although they did raise the employee contribution 50% for this fiscal year (from $54/pay period to $80/pay period).

    Cons

    Limited, if any professional advancement: Although the company touts growth, from what I've seen, much of the newer management positions were handed to foreigners who originated from the parent company (large German firm). Be aware that HR and managers will paint a pretty picture in terms of career growth...this is certainly an example of "too good to be true." Lack of communication between departments and even colleagues: Never in my practice experience have I witnessed antisocial behavior between colleagues and divisions. Departments are mistakenly omitted from various meetings and/or never receive crucial information until after the fact. This trickles down even to the individual level, where colleagues (albeit not all) have adopted this cold and antisocial behavior. Unfair practices: "Good" employees are rewarded with more work. Certain employees have adopted dismal work ethics here; they frequently arrive 30-60 minutes late, take excessively long lunch breaks, leave promptly at 5pm, etc. Because of this, hard working employees are forced to take on the extra workload. Rather than being appreciated for their efforts, management "rewards" with more work.
