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

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Flexible work schedule (in some departments). Some talented and knowledgeable coworkers. Many learning opportunities. Nice facility with state of the art equipment. Company could *potentially* be very successful.

    Cons

    Decades of mismanagement is bearing real consequences. Management seems threatened by experienced employees, and staff their departments with greenhorns that they can bully into telling them only what they want to hear. Laziness and incompetence are tolerated far too much, usually based on how well liked you are, and/or unwillingness of management to address bad behavior . Meanwhile, productive employees are exhausted, demoralized, and eventually chased out after being forced to float all the dead wood. Pay increases are generally cost of living adjustments, and promotions are popularity contests. There used to be a sense of job security, but even that has gone away with reductions in staff becoming almost a quarterly occurrence.

    Advice to Management

    Quit rewarding bad behavior. Take a long hard look at middle management.
