    I have been working at Mylan Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good teamwork in most areas, employees are able to have fun
    - Community involvement (Ex. Habitat for Humanity) encouraged
    - Great health plan!
    - Morgantown is a great place to live (at least I think so)

    Cons

    - Recent changes in IT leadership have generated low morale
    - CIO is unpredictable, seems to dislike his own team (?). The best people are leaving or being forced out. People are walking on egg shells.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure IT issues are even noticed by top leadership. Please bring Michael Smith back!

    I have been working at Mylan Inc full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - A lot of opportunity in the pharma industry and Mylan has a broad portfolio and large global presence
    - With M&A activity, it "should be" set up well for the future
    - Passionate lower-level employees that are hard working and willing to put in the effort

    Cons

    - All executive leadership. They have no idea that the culture is the worst it has ever been, or if they do they don't care.
    - Nobody believes in what they are doing anymore, and the leadership doesn't believe in the employees. "My way or the highway"
    - Too much micromanagement. Top Execs have driven this company into the ground and the culture reflects it. Forget about having a novel idea.
    - Uncertainty about the future with bad press, more bad press, voluntary layoffs and even more bad press.
    - Unclear commercial direction, unclear vision, unclear leadership.
    - Nobody feels like they work for a good company anymore. Zero morale and the employees realize that nobody cares.

    Advice to Management

    - Look in the mirror and realize what you're doing to destroy what was a great company
    - Embrace change, technology and open-mindedness. Despite the mission, vision and values that are put out as propaganda, it's not a representation of the company. This company is old-school, dictatorial and refuses to change.
    - Instead of "my way or the highway," maybe you ought to put yourself out to the highway as you've destroyed anything positive.

    I have been working at Mylan Inc full-time

    Pros

    Good colleagues who work hard under poor conditions.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor at best. Most are not empowered to make a decision. To some degree this simply flows from the CEO and President, but mostly is an engrained culture where everything has to go through one person to get approved, down to buying pencils. Vice Presidents are know as the company patsy's and most decisions make no sense at all. Some decisions are simply based on the mood of leadership. This can be very frustrating when the slogan "Do what's right" is tossed around with the nonsense. Other areas of the company don't seem as bad - but in Regulatory "Do what's right" is more of "Do what's right today" and then figure out what's right tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the leader in Morgantown and in the mirror. Is this how you want to be known in the community?

    Pros

    Does a lot for the surrounding communities. Throws a decent football tailgate.

    Cons

    Management is oblivious to the real problems. Employee morale is also not very high these days.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Mike's message of do what's right, not what's easy.

    I worked at Mylan Inc full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are above average for the geographic area

    Cons

    The culture is really awful. Morale is so low. Management, from Associate Managers to Directors to Vice Presidents, do not appear to have the skill sets to LEAD or receive training when placed in these positions. Management consistently uses intimidation, cursing, and ridicule. Human Relations is aware. Spent more than 15 years in positions across different departments. THIS IS THE NORM. Such a shame that Ms. Bresch and other Senior Leaders cannot or will not acknowledge how this is holding the company back from attracting and keeping talent.

    Advice to Management

    Ms. Bresch & Board - WAKE UP. Your vision is realistic, but NOT with the management practices being doled out day in, day out across the company. Empower employees by hiring and training excellent leaders and then HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

    Pros

    The position challenged me every day, I loved the projects, and I enjoyed the freedom to choose my own projects and methods to complete them

    Cons

    The managers were very conceited, management was also very intimidated by their subordinates, and personal relationships caused a lot of strife.

    Advice to Management

    Get better management?

    Pros

    Free Parking, Better Than Average Salaries and Bonus

    Cons

    Inexperienced and Novice IT Leadership Team, Absolutely No Career Map Process, IT Investments and Priorities are Dart-Board Selected, Powerpoint IT Culture

    Advice to Management

    Words Have Meaning (if you put them on the wall your leaders should understand and demonstrate them), When Selecting Leaders Likeable Doesn't Translate to Competent, Work Smarter Not Harder, Proven Methods and Technique Actually Work If You Understand the Value Proposition, Hire Smart People Then Get Out of Their Way

    Pros

    The employees are nice enough and smart. Lots of potential there under the right leadership.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is uninspiring (refer to the string of bad PR events one after the other) and focused only on near term performance. Professionals from every discipline are micromanaged, approval of funding to do anything is worse than ever (sloooooowwww)

    Advice to Management

    Stop the M&A madness, stabilize the company, consider hiring a new CEO (one that brings less baggage to the equation and can grow profits without increasing prices constantly) - Heather and Robert should retire at this point. To the President: empower your functions to create value, stop micromanaging everything. Start promoting based on merit, not connections.
