    Pros

    Good benefits, good PTO, 401K vested in 2 years, 65% of the people are nice.

    Cons

    Ok, first, this plant is located in the middle of nowhere. Cold and lot of snow. Latinos and African Americans are not welcome. If you don't join the boys club, you have no future. The Management doesn't know too much about quality and good engineering practices.

    Advice to Management

    Let good people in no matter if they are black, blue, yellow, brown or latinos.

    I have been working at Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm glad I wasn't scared off by some of the negative reviews (which were likely a result of roles ending due to M&A activity). This is an excellent company to work for so far. For an old company, in many ways it is like working for a startup due to the changes when the company was spun off a couple years ago.

    There are many new people in the NJ location and everyone I've met so far is enthusiastic about their role and the opportunity to really help this company get to the next level. People are passionate about helping patients, hard working, and are open to collaborating.

    The compensation and benefits are very good, and due to growth there are numerous opportunities to grow your career with the company.

    Cons

    No company is perfect, and there are certainly challenges here but nothing major. A few minor things like on-boarding process, some stale technology, and communication could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but communicate more. Invest in technology where it's lacking. Encourage cross-team collaboration. Specialty brands have a tendency to think they are 100% unique but in reality a lot could be learned from each other if some of the silos were removed.
