    "Easy to maintain work life balance, but not a place for excellence"

    Pros

    Cephalon is not a very demanding employer - it is easy to maintain work life balance

    Cons

    Excellence is not rewarded at Cephalon and in fact, if you pursue excellence too much it may actually hinder your career at Cephalon, where it is more important to not make waves rather than to get the job done well or even get the job done at all

    Advice to Management

    Demand more from employees and get rid of the dead wood, which is weighing down the company

    I worked at Cephalon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, work life balance, and pay. Opportunity to specialize in one or two things. Small site allowed you to know everyone in your organization. Bonuses were good.

    Cons

    No opportunity to do anything other than your niche function. Large disconnect between senior management and the workforce. Constant emails from corporate responding to the media, politics, and investigations into the company started making things seem shady. Cliques weren't bad when I started but in two years they were bad enough that I decided to leave. One group had problems with sexual harassment, screaming matches between PhDs and line workers. If you leave, the company will never rehire you.

    Advice to Management

    There was an arrogance instilled in employees that persists to this day when talking with them.

    I worked at Cephalon (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fabulous benefits - and a great company. Lots of wonderful coworkers and we really got a lot done.

    Was given lots of opportunities

    Cons

    No longer exists - and the that is really a shame. I think all of the former employees really know how good we had it - and really miss it.

    Advice to Management

    nothing I can say here...
