    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Pay Challenging projects - interesting work and opportunity to learn and grow skill set 5% 401K match

    Cons

    benefit package subpar - medical is costly, the new "maternity leave" is a joke that even HR doesn't comprehend, no tuition reimbursement, culture makes it difficult to take PTO Management not very focused on employees - either worried about keeping the untenable MFG schedule packed or keeping dev clients happy and paying than putting effort toward employee training, development and satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending KBI is still a small startup - a multinational corporation with sites in Europe, CA, TX, CO and NC should function like one. Invest in your employees and it will pay dividends in the bottom line.

    I have been working at KBI Biopharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - above average pay - good place to start right out of school - fast paced, always on your feet, you will learn a lot - if you are in a good group, it can be a great experience and very rewarding

    Cons

    - if you aren't in a good group, or if your manager sucks, it can be awful - facility is poorly maintained and they do not invest in it - no paternity leave and otherwise average benefits - a lot of the day-to-day lifestyle things like your workspace and parking are poor

    Advice to Management

    - reinvest some profits into improving the durham facility otherwise relocate - more space is a necessity and this has been largely ignored - reward managers whose employees are thriving and remediate managers whose employees are miserable
