    Cons

    there is couple of employees that is smoking weed in the garage, doing lunch, and the HR people knows these, but they will not do anything about it, the other employee have to smell it, and it makes them sick, but if anybody say anything , they will be fired, not the ones that smokes weeds

    I worked at Nexgen Pharma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The insurance benefits are good though that's about it.

    Cons

    Management is in complete chaos, highly unprofessional, and the two in human resources are condescending bullies that are real proud of these accomplishments. Hourly production staff are worn out and miserable (take note on breaks), many have been fired over false allegations, and favoritism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    While you are enjoying your lives in California, your staff is suffering in Colorado. Treat your staff with more respect and they'll stick around longer and there won't be a need for full time ads from a staffing agency on every internet job search. You also need to take a serious look at your human resources and consider replacing them with say, folks that have compassion, and, can deal with the diversity of staff personalities. Rate the CEO? When he walks through the plant, he might consider NOT looking down his nose at everyone.

    Pros

    it was a nice place to work there, there is some nice people there

    Cons

    they would like to get rid of the good people that wants to work, and keep the one that does drugs, so if anybody that what to get high, go to Nexgen Pharma, and bad thing about it is that Human Resources and the Plant Management know are about it, and only thing they did was to send this person home, so everybody else had to smell the weed in the

    I have been working at Nexgen Pharma full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility has been placed on the right people that have been in the pharma industry for many years. These leaders are focused on taking this company to the next level. Stay tuned, those who left will want to come back.

    Cons

    Budgets for departments are tight, but should open up as soon as some key products are launched.

    Advice to Management

    Be confident with the leaders you have in place now.

    Pros

    They have a nice big parking garage under the building which is great to park in.

    Cons

    They pull everyone in the night packaging group into a meeting and tell us about cross training for us to be able to make more money. Then 4 days later lay all of the packager off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk so much about your personal lives during group meetings. I don't care that your a single bachelor and wanting to get moved the Irving California location. Don't hire way more people then you need when you can obviously tell the company's sales are down.

    Pros

    Competive compensation, good benefits, family atmosphere, stability, good opportunities for those with a desire to improve.

    Cons

    Like any company, Nexgen isn't perfect...with that said, I would say that the company uses it resources well. This is a fast paced environment, and not for those without a work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the family atmosphere.
