    I worked at Impax Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In 2014: Compensation is comparable to other companies. Still a US-based generics company (however, they may move manufacturing to Taiwan). Lots of employees with good intentions (unfortunately their inputs are not considered).

    Cons

    At the time I was there: old style management, nepotism, quality culture = nil, many very unhappy employees, no sick days (included in PTO, which is not much), very difficult to implement improvement, lack of support between departments... the list goes on.

    Advice to Management

    N/A. It seems like there was a lot of personnel changes since I left. Hopefully, they have changed for the better.
