    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.

    I worked at Noramco full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and overtime. Great for a first job. Would recommend 1-2 years if not promoted.

    Cons

    No flexibility in work schedule. not much growth opportunities. management doesn't seem interested in strengthening a workers abilities and growth. Worked more like a machine where you repeat the same tasks and never get much insight in why or how things work.

    Advice to Management

    create a career path to promotions.

    Pros

    This was by far the most technical coop I've had. It was extremely challenging and stressful. Great job to begin real world scenarios.

    Cons

    There is too much paperwork in pharma. Improvements take way to long to initiate. To complete tasks every department at the company has to sign-off on an approval.
