    Pros

    The people here are great to work with. A good place to gain experience about the pharmaceutical CMO industry.

    Cons

    Was once a good place to work until the company was acquired by Piramal Pharma Solutions in 2016. Ash Stevens focused on delivering quality and doing good science for our customers. Now Piramal focuses on running this company by cutting cost at every corner and compromising quality to our customers. The Piramal company culture is one where employees are not valued and considered expendable. Piramal now has created unrealistic project timelines in order to get clients. The site revenue goals are ridiculous based on the amount of money they have invested into the site. It is now a very unorganized and stressful place to work.

    I have been working at Ash Stevens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule which is great for self-motivated team members. Team members are helpful and supportive. If you ever need anything, office supplies, lab supplies, even instrumentation they are helpful in making sure it is ordered.

    Cons

    Overall culture of the company seems stuck in the 50s. Inappropriate comments are common even from high management. Company struggles with communication between departments which causes additional work. No real room for advancement within the company. There are few that have risen, but it is not common. This is pretty normal for a small company.

    Advice to Management

    Management training for all managers including HR related issues as well as just how to interact with an manage staff more effectively.
