Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Ben Venue full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Plenty of vacation days given. Decent healthcare. Decent cafeteria during day shift. Very flexible with short notice time off. Personal lockers given.

Cons

Management is clueless and unethical. This facility produces injectable drugs. More care should be taken in making these drugs safe and effective. Facility is old and technology is at least 15 years outdated. Entirely too much fluff. Approximately 1400 people at facility only 500 are involved with manufacturing.

Advice to Management

Please Please remind yourself that what you make is injected into people.

    I have been working at Ben Venue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good financial backing from parent company (Boehringer-Ingelheim), good talent, good location (NE Ohio), diverse product portfolio.

    Cons

    Less than ideal management/employee communication, career advancement is sporadic, employee turnover, career opportunities are not as available to tenured employees, currently there is an excessive reliance on outside contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Have more faith in tenured employees; listen to the employees, there are many good ideas to help get productivity to previous levels.

    I have been working at Ben Venue full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company offers Good salary and benefits. The 401K and pension plan is excellent. Compensation is tops in the industry for hires with experience. Many opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Long hours and working every weekend. No work/life balance. Cost is out of control and management has no clue what is going on until doors about to be closed. Internal promotions are not compensated well.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the people from the past. offer them early retirement so new thinking and culture can take place. Change needs to happen quickly before parent company wakes up and realize BVL is eating their profits.
