    I have been working at West Pharmaceutical Services full-time

    Pros

    West is a great place to work. They are clearly dedicated to helping their employees grow and reach their full potential, offering constant training and opportunities to grow or move into another role if that's what you're interested in. There is a ton of flexibility (outside of the lab) and most supervisors trust you to get your work done whether it's during business hours or not. As a working mom, I appreciate the work-life Balance that I've been afforded by working at West.

    Cons

    The maternity leave policy is not good.
