    I have been working at Lonza full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package
    Great office location for easy commute
    Good people with whom to work

    Cons

    Politics run amok
    Constant change with little communication
    If you do not get in with upper management early on, your advancement is limited

    Advice to Management

    Lack of communication of change results in not knowing who is responsible for critical tasks. Policies and procedural updates should occur regularly. Do not promote or move people to lateral positions without knowing what they are responsible for in their current positions and having a plan to ensure responsibilities are handled.

    Pros

    The company is well run and I also really like the company culture. They actually care about the employees. They don't take us for granted. In return we give them our best.

    Cons

    They have had several reorganizations over the last few years. Its been necessary as they grow the company, but its also been a little disruptive, as one would expect.
