    Pros

    Good opportunity for newly graduate but not a long term career goal

    Cons

    "Upper Management" doesn't know what they are doing and need more training on how to deal with their employees. As an upper management, you should know how to lead your people to be better and not chase them out of the door. And please do not micromanage.

    Don't work here if you want a life. Work here if you like being belittled by management

    Pros

    -Cool coworker (direct coworkers NOT management) -Company parties/gifts -Location

    Cons

    Upper management is absolute horribleThey don't care about their employees simple as that. They are continually going through power struggles. They have no idea what they are doing as far as delivering effective communication, creating a healthy work space, and people management. There are a lot of holes in this company and it's sad. No one knows the real reason they are here besides getting a paycheck and that should be very concerning for the people receiving the treatment they are producing. Also, there is very bad work-life balance here. Be prepared to miss all the important events that are important to you and the people in your personal life cause if you don't put in for time off 4-7 months ahead of time you can forget about going anywhere. This company was also low balling me in compensation. Every biotech including ones you have never heard of are getting paid more than people are here. I found out that people that were male and had a degree from lesser established universities were getting paid more than me for the same job title and duties for a while until they evened it out later in the year. Which we still were being under paid.

    Pros

    Benifits,401k If you're a college graduate that needs to build a resume it's a great learning job. For experienced professionals, this is not the job for you.

    Cons

    Ive been at the company for over 2 years,upper and senior management are inexperienced.Manufacturing workers are treated like kids. There is no training program for the technicians that are expected to make injectable medicine. Upper management lies about what actually goes on in the clean rooms.
