    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Lonza full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Traffic-free commute. Rapid exposure to multiple products and processes. Great way to build industry experience. Collaborative environment both within groups and between groups. Low office politics. Management exists to facilitate productivity and break down roadblocks instead of only telling you how to do your job. Focused on maintaining positive company culture through events, recognition, and site improvement. Senior management is approachable and seems to genuinely care about growth of the site and employee careers. Rotation to different positions and sites encouraged. Work/life balance and using vacation is a priority from the top down.

    Cons

    Decision making is not a fast process.

    Pros

    The people keep you here. I work with a good team and they keep me sane here. The benefits are pretty good as well.

    Cons

    This site has a lot of improvements that need to be made. I’ve spoken to people from different departments that share the same sentiment. It’s not uncommon for people to move on and find opportunities elsewhere.
