    Advice to Management

    Look at how you integrate across the value chain. Please consider moving to a "Critical Team" model that consists of Regulatory Affairs, Pricing and Market Access, Government Affairs, and Medical Affairs sub teams. Combined with a diligent effort to cross-pollinate the pharmaceutical organization with strongly supported interdepartmental communications and collaboration channels, critical teams can serve as a catalyst and oversight engine for better-informed business decisions, from R&D through commercial and supply chain activities.

    Pros

    A lot of good operators that care and help others to keep their jobs good benefits

    Cons

    The upper management has a circle of individuals that snitch on operators and put them down the directors has a snich in every area and don't listen to the supervisors we get mad seen good supervisors leaving resent one of the bed supervisors has left us and soon others will follow with out supervisors with people skills soon a lot of good operators will leave too it's a shame that upper management don't see that only production supervisors leaving big turn around in that area

    Advice to Management

    Upper management please look who you have in charge in those key positions because soon we all good operators will end up leaving if things don't change
