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

Pros

Great co-workers (only field employess and a few managers)

Cons

Is like working on the fire department, everything is high priority.

Advice to Management

Decision from Upper management always push field employees to work long hard shifts.
Too many change in decisions.
Many departments have a too heavy load and there is not enough personel.

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

    Pros

    Really liked my co-workers, the boss - not so much. Nice bonus structure but then you work all the time.

    Cons

    No work life balanace. Corporate culture is terrible, there is no respect for employees. Senior Management is afraid to make decisions. Structure of company is strange, people without experince make decisions for functional areas. One client - the US Goverment.

    Advice to Management

    LIve your corporate values - you brag about having the core values but very few employees live them. Let functional heads run their departments, not the project managers.

    Pros

    None that come to mind.

    Cons

    Site leadership has absolutely no regard to workers and work-life balance. Upper management often behave like small children, at times flying off the handle when dealing with difficult situations, completely unprofessional.

    Leadership at the corporate leve (in Maryland) is even worse. They treat their supposed colleagues in Lansing with disrespect and disdain. They continually throw their weight around, making sure that the Lansing folks know who's boss.

    Advice to Management

    If you do not respect your employees, they will (and have) leave in bunches. Also, site leaders with hot tempers and unprofessional behaviors will only destroy compaby culture and morale.
