    I have been working at Mayne Pharma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is always talking about employees and how to provide tools for growth. It is clear that this company values the people and considers us the most valued asset. Just received an opportunity with advancement and every bit of it was earned by hard work. With the growth and building more structural assets, it is clear that more advancement for employees will be there..

    Cons

    It's growing. With growth comes struggles. Some of the least hardest workers makes it tough to work because of the negative attitudes. These employees complain but don't want to work for it. Suggest to management to get rid of those employees. It is clear to me that these employees use sites like this because they can't get an easy way to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Highly recommend

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Mayne Pharma full-time

    Pros

    Place to gain a little bit of experience and move on to better jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Leadership has not proven they are capable of taking the company to the next level. They are sticking to an unproven strategy, rather than adapting and learning from mistakes.

    Room for growth is limited unless you work in specific departments. There is a significant imbalance of resources that makes it difficult for the company to run smoothly. As a result, various areas of the company cannot perform to the level required of a competent business. In addition, lots of resources are wasted by bloating specific departments with people, when other departments are struggling to do an adequate job.

    The company has a lot of struggles ahead and is a risky place for employment.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the organization more holistically to determine where additional resources are needed to develop the infrastructure necessary to run the business.

    Learn from mistakes and adapt.

    Lay out a mission and make it clear to employees what they are driving towards by going to work each day.

    Pros

    It's easy to please the right people and move your way up with little results.

    Cons

    Executive Management is lost to the most simple of tasks. No vision for a future and constantly managing the stock price rather than growing a solid company. Pessimistic attitude makes it hard to believe in what you're doing. Huge mistakes made be senior leadership and they have cycled middle management when accountability needs to be addressed at the very top.

    Advice to Management

    Executive leadship needs a clean sweep and replaced with some experienced eadership.

    Pros

    Almost everyone is under 40 - they love hiring recent grads especially those with no experience. You can quit and work at the other pharma company in town for a year then come back and get a HUGE raise (lots of people have figured this out)

    Cons

    You will make no money, Greenville is an awful town, No room for growth, Intimidation is a common practice among upper management, You will not develop any skills, The job descriptions are super vague and do not accurately reflect the job you'll actually do. Be careful when you say yes to joining a particular group/team - this is where you will stay for the duration of your employment. Men and women are not paid equally.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites
    Train people
    Equal pay for equal work
