    I worked at Noramco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and located near Athens.

    Cons

    Toxic atmosphere. The site has a long history of management turmoil. The alliance that is in power has promoted loyalist to senior roles, some of which are the source of toxicity. Extreme gender discrimination. Overall low morale, extremely political environment, and the kind of toxic atmosphere that ensures everyone is miserable. Most employees have been on site for a decade and continue with the turmoil mentality. Gossip, criticism, and deceit are the gold standards. Avoid this place.

    Advice to Management

    Squash the gossip.

    Pros

    Small size
    Potential to interact with other disciplines

    Cons

    Recently sold, no longer part of J&J
    Reorganization can mean more layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on maturity and experience in hiring.

    I worked at Noramco full-time

    Pros

    Never a dull moment in your work and always busy. The pay and benefits were good. Management it engaged and involved. Family atmosphere. Opportunity to do many different task and project work.

    Cons

    Career advancement slow for some and fast for others. Way too much favoritism shown to "YES" Employees. Lots of Managers in charge that have no idea what there doing. If you are a person of color beware advancement will definitely be slow or none. Yes bias and racism still exist and is alive and well and this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded to giving all people a chance to advance into management not just those that look like the majority. Diversity is a great help to a company not just a check the box item.

    Pros

    Decent salary, good systems infrastructure

    Cons

    The company was divested from J&J, so now they are reorganizing and letting go ("firing") people. I was hired by the end of 2016 and "let it" go in May 2017. Poor management decision hiring people and five months later firing them, very unprofessional and very irresponsible.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate yourself to see if you fit into the shoes of responsible management practices.

    Pros

    Promote based upon merit. Great PTO and Benefits

    Cons

    Poor communication. Not much room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Less Micromanagement

    Pros

    People with lots of energy tend to thrive in Noramco's fast-paced environment. And for being so fast-paced, the people at Noramco are fairly laid back.

    Cons

    The training isn't the best. You are kind of just expected to pick up on things as you go. Definitely not the way I would run my company.

    I worked at Noramco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good company, very professional and non-political environment; good work-life balance. Everybody was very pleasant there, laid-back (for pharma compared to Pfizer/JNJ elsewhere), and def a very nice office/ collegial environment; good group of people.

    Cons

    Too bad it was sold off to Halo Pharma (SKP Capital). That changed everything!

    Advice to Management

    Pls. don't lay off so many of the managers because for sake of business continuity, you actually *need* to keep more than 65-70% of them, ok? (I understand that the prod. port. has drastically changed, but aside from the P.D. and Sales/Marketing dept, why would they need to lay off *other* managers as well? and non-managers too.) Hope that they don't do that!

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn about manufacturing from beginning to end and gain experience on the manufacturing floor working with operations.

    Cons

    Traffic on the way back into Philadelphia if you leave after 4 pm, but you can come in early and leave early (flex schedule) and then there is no traffic concern.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give co-ops projects where they work together to complete them. For example, have the project and the process co-op work together and put their knowledge together.

    Pros

    Many employees have spent most of their career at this company.

    Cons

    The divestment to a PE firm has increased the stress and uncertainty greatly. Older employees are treated much better than younger. There is very limited ability to grow and be promoted. Bonus is now based on 1 company and not J&J portfolio.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about the business issues and stop saying how great everything will be. have seen the ceo and us president 2x in the last 6 months and work in the same office. Stop paying consultants hundreds an hour and employees a non negotiable fixed amount.
