    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Capsugel full-time

    Pros

    Have a one track mind. Revenue

    Cons

    Will not listen to lower management. Will not discuss actions suggested by others. It's their way or the highway .

    Advice to Management

    You would be more effective leaders if they learned to include other suggestions/options. Dictators never get high employee engagement.

    Pros

    Engaged colleagues. Highly ethical and conscientious. Never bored.

    Cons

    The primary owner did not care about individuals, only profits so they could sell us. Political environment on job site treated many unfairly. Kiss up and be considered INVALUABLE. Incompetent people promoted over merited individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. You have lost good people and knowledge. Listen to concerns instead of politics.

    Hardworking colleagues with years of experience in the industry that were always willing to give their time to help you learn the business. Great mentors

    I worked at Capsugel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Safe, clean and maintained environment. Good work life balance, with descent benefits..

    Cons

    Claims to be team oriented, but no communication is even transpired. Training is very cumbersome, training curricula changes and you loose current qualifications and start over from the beginning.

    Unorganized, lots of politics

    Advice to Management

    Give more direction, communication should be key in a place that claims to be team oriented.

    Pros

    Great benefits and great people. Everyone is well equipped to do their jobs. Company vision is clear to all.

    Cons

    A very flat organization with little opportunity for advancement, mostly due to longevity (lack of turnover) of colleagues.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Capsugel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the very, very few technical job opportunities in Bend, Oregon.

    Cons

    Overworked, undervalued. Engineers are valued and paid substantially more than chemists. Management is poor and creates unhealthy company environment. Stressful, dramatic, inefficient. So many projects and compounds fail due to old managers who were hired due to their friendships with old leadership. Too many people get moved up into management positions they are grossly underqualified for because they've been at the company for so many years and attrition is so high. Its sad.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the old leadership that doesn't have experience- they aren't capable of bringing the company towards the growth projections expected of BRI.

    Cons

    Don't do it go somewhere we're else no future

    Advice to Management

    All management or engineering degree no feelings everything is a number
