    I worked at Mayne Pharma (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Facilities are decent, some very good people in middle management and some strong technical scientists and chemists.

    Cons

    Long working hours, lip service to 'people are our greatest assets', aging equipment, plant manager/VP who has to be one of the most arrogant people I've ever met (and for truly no good reason).

    Advice to Management

    Next time you want to blow up an organization that had been running well, think about what you're doing. For example, are the 'new' ideas and continuous improvements you're trying to implement working at other organizations. Was the organization you're trying to bring similar changes and ideas from a successful one? (in other words, why would anyone try to replace a winning formula with a losing one), can you tell us the plan for all the changes, as in, how are they going to work. Change is not wrong, but tell us the plan. Change with no plan = disorder

    Fire Dean Childers and hire someone who cares about their employees. Compensate your employees!

    I worked at Mayne Pharma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As stated multiple times before, it's a good place to get started in the pharma industry. Gain experience right out of school, like every other chemist they hire.

    Cons

    The good employees eventually leave realizing there's far better opportunities with better pay and benefits. The "management" is typically those that just held out and waited for their turn for a promotion, not very good leaders and lack a significant understanding of how to lead. Mayne does not value you as an employee, you're just another number that can be replaced every year with ECU graduation. Generic pharma is not doing well, outlook is not good for Mayne.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in leadership training and development, spend money to ensure employees are valued.

    I worked at Mayne Pharma (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company looked promising at first. Promises were made about giving respect and receiving it. The introductory period seemed like a good place to work. The pay is not that good compared to other pharmaceuticals but ok.

    Cons

    After the introductory period, I realized management had no clue as to what they were doing. This place lacks leadership stemming from the top down to supervision. Promises were broken needless to say and management was very disrespectful. It's a family based business. Seems like everyone is kin or knows each other, so there is no accountability when errors are made. Meetings are circular, talking about the same old stuff with no progress. If you are not in their circle, or a kiss up, you will not last long there. I do not recommend this place to anyone unless they change Directors, Management and some Supervision

    Advice to Management

    Resign or step up. Take accountability for your actions and treat employees fair. Eliminate the buddy buddy system and terminate all those not willing to allow the company to grow

    Advice to Management

    communicate and connect

    Pros

    Potential Growth Opportunities if the Leadership gets their act together.

    Cons

    No direction, No communication, No true leadership. Too many chiefs and people stabbing each other for promotions / growth.

    Advice to Management

    Establish your agenda and your vision, establish your 1 year / 3 year / 5 year / etc goals and introduce it to the people and let it trickle down. Establish the thresholds for the KPIs and hold people accountable to them. There is no accountability. We sit in meetings and talk the same stuff over and over and over and nothing is done about it. No one believes in what we are doing since the leadership is not being straightforward with us. Be honest to the folks and be straightforward. Do not be all politically correct.
