        Neutral Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at Hikma full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        team atmosphere between same site departments, great opportunities for those with Ph.D.s, competitive salaries, good entry level positions

        Cons

        no follow through on promises, very understaffed, unorganized, poor leadership and no follow through with either promotions or dealing with harassment, very poor HR support

        Advice to Management

        Do not tell people things you do not follow through on. Value those without Ph.D.s. If someone doesn't work out then don't keep them past the 90 day mark. Treat the good employees better and actually listen to and absorb what people are saying.

        I have been working at Hikma full-time

        Pros

        Current management seems to be interested in keeping all the good things about the place and making any other things better.

        Cons

        Many of any Cons are self-inflicted by negative people.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to listen to and communication to the employees. Let them see you taking part and enjoying your job.

        I have been working at Hikma full-time

        Pros

        Work Life Balance. Somewhat competitive salaries if you are hired from outside. Company is starting to move in the right direction in term of employee retention and management culture. Good place to learn. Respectful management.

        Cons

        Low starting salaries. Not necessarily a place to retire from. (Personal Opinion)

        Advice to Management

        Establish clear expectations and follow up, not by micro-managing. Be more approachable.

        Pros

        Pay can be good; benefits are decent, I suppose

        Cons

        - Micro-management at an all-time high - Can't keep products off of backorder - Seem to care more for profits than patients OR employees - REAL quick to turn on long-time employees if a new manager simply doesn't "like" them, their personality, or their GENDER - No real opportunity for career advancement - Promotions go to "friends" rather than those best fit or worthy - Everyone gossips about each other - and management...

        Advice to Management

        - Look at unchecked way promotions are "handed out" to friends rather than those who are actually the most qualified - Consider actually getting the drugs hospitals need most into the market as opposed to only those that make the company the most money - Allow customers to actually purchase product from the company rather than actually forcing sales and Customer Service to have to say "Sorry, you're not a big enough...
