    I worked at Biotest Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    benefits are good
    reasonable opportunity for advancement and raise
    some great and hardworking coworkers
    conveniently located for people in broward and palm beach

    Cons

    management has a silo mentality
    embarrassingly understaffed in almost all areas
    need for culture change is recognized by executive committee members, but they refuse to take action
    immature office politics blocks meaningful progress
    at least one example of someone who worked there who went to hr with issues re: management and then was fired soon after (go ahead and tell me this was a coincidence)

    Advice to Management

    the company can only succeed if you stop enabling your managers to destroy it from the inside

    Listen to your employees, they most likely no more than you.

    I worked at Biotest Pharmaceuticals (More than a year)

    Pros

    Team collaboration
    Great co-workers
    Fun Company activities
    Convenient location

    Cons

    Some departments are understaffed for the workload
    Lack of communication
    HR out of touch with reality

    Advice to Management

    HR should realize that the greatest resource to a company are its employees. Just like capital investments are made to building and equipment, the same care and investment should be applied to the employees by offering more comprehensive training to keep the company in compliance with regulatory regulations.

    Pros

    Good benefits, PTO, etc, and they do generally promote from within.

    Cons

    The corporate office is a mess. They wait until something happens then overreact to it instead of planning for the future, and when they do plan for the future its extremely short sighted. Unrealistic goals that are never met. Nothing happens quickly. Employees are treated like incompetent buffoons by higher ups who barely do enough to keep their own jobs Pay is below market average. This is a company that quality employees leave the second they find something better.

    Advice to Management

    If you want better employees, offer more money.

    Pros

    This company is filled with great, talented and caring people. The amount of task and accomplishments that is completed on a daily basis by those with limited resources is very admirable.

    Cons

    Management!!!!!!!!...This company for its size is full of politics that is completely unnecessary. The lack of recognition from management for the talent that they have in-house is very distasteful.

    Silos is a common thing at BPC and at time encourage.

    Lack of professional improvement.

    Lack of recognition

    Advice to Management

    Get down from your high horse and speak to your people. Utilize the talent that you have, foster their ideas, encourage improvement and recognize their accomplishment, because key to success is based on a solid foundation and your people is your

    Pros

    The company has good wages and benefits for their employees. They also update you on the company goals objectives.

    Cons

    Too much favoritism and butt kissing. Workers who kiss-up are promoted and treated better than people who work harder and no more about the job. Training sucks altogether.

    Advice to Management

    The company already lost many good people because of this. A good coach treats everybody on the team fairly and recognizes talent
