    Pros

    Pay is well.
    A decent amount of variety - types of manufacturing, types of technical experience.

    Cons

    Expectations to be there and available at all times
    Although there was a variety, people tended to stay in the distinct areas (sterile, bulk, finishing)
    and there was not as much leveraging of best practice and communication across these devisions.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and honest.
