    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Almac Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Intelligent, hard working, dedicated co-workers. On site gym

    Cons

    Building is new but too small already, not enough parking. Management is inconsistent across departments and levels. Pay is not commensurate with experience and skills. No work like balance for lower level employees. Managers can work from home, flex schedule, etc. but promote themselves as a flexible company.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize practices across departments LISTEN to the employees - they are your best resource, if they say there is something wrong, at least take a look at it.

    I worked at Almac Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    PTO, benefits if you're single. If you have a family the benefits are very expensive! Good company to learn the industry or fresh out of college.

    Cons

    Not EOE, racist, gender bias. If you're a female you will have no issues moving up. They do play favorites. If you are an experienced professional don't waste your time unless you absolutely need a job till something better comes along. Most of management has been there since they started in the U.S. It's the good ol boys club. Compensation is horrible for experienced professionals. Almac capitalized on... applicants when the market was down. When things got better everyone jumped ship. Don't sign the non-compete and if you leave don't tell anyone where you are going.

    I have been working at Almac Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great caring people who want to do a good job for their customers. Good benefits and flexible work environment.

    Cons

    Indifferent upper management launched a new ERP system they knew didn't work, so they could give themselves a bonus, leaving employees stressed and scrambling to keep studies going and customers happy. News flash...customers and employees are pissed. It won't be long until both start running out the door. In the past 6 months they have sucked the life out of everyone here who cared about doing a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the people who made the decision to launch a system they spent 6 years and millions of dollars developing and reach out to the people who make the company work to try to fix what these people broke. It's not too late to save a once great company.

    I have been working at Almac Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (Health, Dental, 401K and vision). Skilled and friendly co workers. High work volume but a sense of value in what you do.

    Cons

    Management apathy and lack of respect for employees is causing a horrible drop in employee morale and high turn over. Issues with treatment of employees by co workers and mid / upper level management are not dealt with or addressed in a serious, timely nor effective manner. This is extremely troubling in such a successful business with such a skilled, intelligent group of employees. A true shame that the employee... population is made to feel this way. Management takes an agressive naricissistic approach with employees genuinely seeking help to change this environment. A vast majority of employees are looking elsewhere.
