    I have been working at Colorcon INC full-time

    Pros

    Allows flexible work hours.

    Good environment and respect employees from different culture.

    Willing to invest in career growth.

    Great team work environment.

    Cons

    Don't put high expectation on the annual merit increase

    Flexible work hours may sometimes mean work late/early to meet with other region's associates.

    Work load and compensation are not equally justified

    Advice to Management

    Try not be too conservative about compensate high performance employees. Proper compensation to high performance employee will motivate them to do even better job instead of provoke them to look for opportunities elsewhere.

    I have been working at Colorcon INC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You're more than just a number. Unlike some bigger companies, which tend to lay people off by the hundreds, at Colorcon, as long as you do your job to the best of your ability, you have a good measure of job security.

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit more competitive and not a whole lot of room for advancement. Plus, the usual office politics.

    Pros

    Fast moving. Get to do a lot of different things. Company has locked up its niche in market. Owned by Berwind corporation, a private company.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover in staff, much being involuntary. "Fast moving" often leads to bad HR decisions and business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    There are some real "duds" on the executive team, who seem to keep their jobs regardless of their mistakes. Weed out these legacy under-performers.
