    I have been working at West Pharmaceutical Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Investors in people gold award holder meaning there are processes for proper performance reviews, working from home, and some flexibility in working hours, among many other advantages.

    Cons

    Can be lots of travel and there is always a fire to be put out! Working here is not for the faint hearted. Management in Dublin (formally Tech Group Europe) are sometimes reactionary and make decisions without transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Resource projects more appropriately as growth in business is not always paired with resource growth in production.
    Have clearer / more transparent succession planning guidelines.
