    I worked at Perrigo full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits are good, free OTC products from company store, they match overall 6% to 401k, depending on department you can get flex hours and during the summer you get every other Friday off

    Cons

    Culture is toxic, not a lot of projects coming in, many people without enough work to fill the day, CEO doesn't have a proven record with the company yet

    Advice to Management

    The culture needs a lot of work. It got to a point of dread to come in everyday. Additionally some management needs to be dealt with.
