    I worked at Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Varied interesting work for people who don't mind a company going through a major transition. New offices renovated. Get your hands in everything to learn and see what sticks and sometimes what not to do.

    Cons

    Company doesn't seem to know what it wants to be and often unfocused with senior leader direction changing every day. A lot of spin on internal messaging and a nixonesque everyone has wronged us woe is me attitude. People should be very cautious and ask questions before coming to this company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus be more consistent and align. Treat employees like adults and professionals. You cannot spin the messages to the story that everyone knows. Own up to the chaos you are responsible for and maybe you will get your people to work harder to help and not just wait to leave or for the bottom to fall out.

    Pros

    High bonus potential and nice company vehicle

    Cons

    Out of touch with the market. MNK really struggles with what they want to be.

    Advice to Management

    Trudeau, O'Neill are abysmal and the sales force is so disengaged. Pretty certain the engagement #'s on the annual survey are skewed. Data is old.

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401K, health insurance and dental plan.

    Cons

    Ok, this review was previously removed. I'm going to try to advise people again. First, this plant is in the middle of nowhere. Because this plant is in the middle of nowhere, people are not used to see diversity. In the previous review I wrote for this company, I mentioned a word that probably was reason glassdoor removed my review. If you smart enough you would know what the word I’m talking about is. My intention is to advice people before accepting a job there. I will repeat this, people are not used to see diversity, people are not used to see diversity. I hope you know what I'm trying so say.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice since they are leaving.

  8. "Think twice"

    Pros

    Good PTO policy, flexibility, and some nice coworkers, but watch your back. Secured parking and campus, nice cafe, that's it.

    Cons

    No job security, outsourcing everything, treat employees as pieces on a chess board, constantly chaotically reorganizing, you'll end up in a group you know nothing about and given no direction.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    I can only speak for the Jersey office, but just moved into a state of the art beautiful office. There is a very collaborative atmosphere within the organization. It has the feel of a start up since they just moved the commercial operations for specialty brands to New Jersey. There is a very collaborative atmosphere. One can wear many hats. If you see an opportunity for improvement or a new way of thinking most people are open to the idea. Good benefits and retirement plan.

    Cons

    If you are someone who needs to have everything in place and prefer to just follow processes already established not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to align benefits and perks with other pharma companies in New Jersey to ensure you continue to attract and keep top talent.
