    Great place to work if.......

    Pros

    if you want to work for a company that's never had one year of net profit, this is a great place. If you want to work for a company where layoffs are rampant, this is a great place. If you want to work for a company where senior leadership is unqualified, and are a bunch of yes men to John, this is a great place. If you want to work for a company that has no internal controls and wastes money, but can lay people off without reservation this is the place. HR, IT, Tax, R&D and others all eliminated and outsourced in some fashion. Meanwhile, senior leadership all manage to get full payouts on bonuses. Still want to hear more? Forgot to mention, SVP's also get axed on a frequent basis as well. Part of Johns inner circle always seem to be shown the door as he brings in the next group of Yes men/woman.

    Cons

    Entire company. If it weren't for Wall Street and constant stock sales, company would've filed for bankruptcy 15 years ago. Must I repeat, never had 1 dollar of profit in any year. Billions in losses. Just look at the financials, it's all there.

    In Decline, Mass Exodus

    Pros

    The reasons why I used to love Amicus are no longer relevant. Poor SLT decisions leading to mass layoffs, worker bees inheriting work from management without recognition nor acknowledgement. The best worker bees left for roles where they are respected & it’s easy to leave when jobs are all virtual. No metrics for performance, promotion is based on popularity. No room for growth, management blames low budget for not promoting within but then hires externally . Nothing is streamlined, folks don’t follow SOPs, decisions are emotional, management is reactive.

    Cons

    In-bred, senior leadership is a bunch of yes-men. Very top heavy, when they needed to trim the fat, they got rid of the smart capable worker bees without reason or transparency. No one knows how to say no. Due dates are arbitrary. The budgets are mysterious, the positive reviews are from management. If Crowleys kids didn’t hve pompe, the company would be under by now since it’s corrupt. They just do things for check marks, like DEI, it’s all bogus

    Great mission. Amazing culture. Great CEO, and generally good management. Doesn't apply to all departments, but generally pretty good.

    Cons

    Lots of changes happening the past two years. Not sure if the culture can be maintained.
