    I have been working at Actavis full-time

    Pros

    Good company for the most part. Pay is decent, Annual bonus, lots of overtime in my plant. Plant manager Jim Shwier is good at managing and piloting the plant.

    Cons

    Supervisors and managers need to learn how to communicate with employees and take responsibilities as managers instead of blaming employees for everything.

    Supervisors and managers need to learn how to communicate with employees and take responsibilities as managers,instead of blaming employees for everything. Not much opportunity for growth in the QA in process department.
