    I have been working at Lannett Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lannett is growing and could continue to be successful if they focused on their employees and their product line. The benefits are good, especially the paid time off.

    Cons

    The growth is happening fast and the new companies that are being acquired do not seem to be integrating well. People are reporting to managers in different states that they haven't even spoken to. Not sure exactly where the focus is day to day or what goal we are all trying to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees know they are valued because a lot are losing faith. Let people do the jobs that they are hired for and make sure they get the resources needed to do those jobs.

    Pros

    Friendly people, opportunity for advancement without an advanced education. CEO can be tone-def at times, but seems to genuinely care about his people.

    Cons

    Very little room for linear advancement. Basically, get your experience and get out before you reach a dead end. With the recent acquisitions, and expected layoffs looming, everyone is seeking to jump overboard.

    Expect to be paid 20% under industry median, but with that trade-off, comes the opportunity to advance with a limited education. As said before, get your degree and experience, then catch the first thing smoking with a higher salary. Sad to say, but they've underpaid their people for years; only the most desperate, or black-balled employees stay on for the long haul.

    Finally some positive changes this week and more group focus.
    Team building days and extra training days added and talk of a new bonus system

    CEO needs to communicate more with senior execs.Is CEO on vacation or at the opera?

    Advice to Management

    Pull your finger out the pie ,roll your sleeves up and lets all work together to make this long standing company great again.

    I worked at Lannett Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well, it's not the unemployment line.

    Cons

    Simply put, this company is the reason sites like Glassdoor exist. Other than that, I'm not certain where to begin other than strong advice to reconsider unless you're in a really bad spot.

    Before you do anything, please do yourself a favor and go to Lannett's website. Then pull up the websites of any competitors and compare the content. Have you noticed anything? To speak of nothing else, you probably saw that there is absolutely nothing on Lannett's site which represents the company to the outside world to indicate that its end goal is to improve the lives of patients. Should you join this company, you will quickly learn that the reason should be simple and self-evident - it's because it isn't. Now let your powers of deduction indicate to you the culture of the company and how you will be treated.

    It's a miracle to me that this place has functioned for so long. From top to bottom, there is an inherent culture of mistrust, complete ignorance, lack of responsibility, micro-management and bull-headed thriftiness that borders on cartoonish. A "mercenary" culture where vendors are thrown money to manage and execute everything. And you? Well, you will hemorrhage brain cells on a daily basis.

    As other reviewers have highlighted, should you decide to come to work here, as a salaried employee you will be expected to use a biometric hand-scanner to punch in and out. If you're unfamiliar with this area of Northeast Philadelphia, you will come to find that your new professional neighbors are various correctional facilities, alcoholic beverage distributors and mulch processing plants. You may hear seasoned corporate employees complain about having to use computers. You may notice there are no processes, no documentation, and absolutely no talent pool to speak of. Your benefits will be of mediocre to poor quality and your compensation nothing to write home about.

    Most importantly you will likely come to realize that the company's success in the last couple of years is not due to any exceptionalism or professionalism, but quite simply due an opportunistic price increase not unlike that of the more scrutinized Turing Pharmaceuticals. You may hear a lot about change in the hiring process, but once you're in you will quickly remember the adage that talk is cheap and recognize that change, growth and innovation are stifled here.

    Joining this company was a ill-conceived decision that I immediately came to regret. Please, learn from my mistake and pay attention to reviews posted here from salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is best echoed from a previous reviewer, and that is to clean house from top to bottom.

    It's clear there is some dissonance or dishonesty when you hear the CEO at a town hall dismiss the loss of a major customer out of hand and then a few weeks later underline the shrinking pool of the company's customers and at the same time highlight that making customers happy should be the its first priority.

    If that wasn't enough, hearing the irresponsible and heartless defense for dramatic price increases which affect the end patient and comparing it to something as mundane as the price of a cup of coffee was reprehensible. You really ought to be ashamed of yourself.

    Also, while we're at it, reality check: as an executive, maybe it's too much to ask, but consider acting like an adult with some semblance of what's knowing appropriate and what's not. Consider that maybe that a town hall is not the place to go on unsolicited political diatribes or to argue with employees in military service as to whether the POTUS is an idiot (yes... that really happened).

    On the current path, worst case scenario you are headed for disaster and at best you are headed back to relative obscurity where you came from. Make some major changes, make them quickly, and hope for some luck. Of course, in light of the departure of the former Lannett President, not much chance of that happening.

    Pros

    Company atmosphere is very laid back and a nice environment. Everyone in the company is very friendly and welcoming to new employees. The company is very small which is a benefit because you get to know everyone and everyone gets to know you.

    Cons

    There is a potential to work with potent compounds and some employees aren't as careful as they should be when handling them which is a concern.
