    I worked at Perrigo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people on the floor were really sweet. Compensation was about average; benefits above average. Good career opportunities if you were willing to relocate around the country, which is great.

    Cons

    I couldn't really put my finger on why I hated going to work every day until I had the blessing of working at my current company, so here it goes. First and foremost, the work/life balance at PNY is horrendous. At previous companies, when I worked a 60 hour week, it was greatly appreciated - I've even received a Thank You note at a previous company (which, I admit, is a little above and beyond). But at PNY, 60 hour weeks were the expectation - no smiles, no thank you's - and that can be stressful in itself. There was also a lot of yelling and screaming on a daily basis - maybe not directly at me - but it does have an influence on your mental health when that's what you're exposed to every day. Last but not least, things were never really done properly - 99% firefighting; 1% creative work. I never had the opportunity to properly do a project start to finish - even our 'presentations' were just a bunch of words on one or two white slides - very unprofessional in my opinion. At my new company, I'm starting projects with an A3, a time study, and a PFMEA - and, in my opinion, that makes things way way way easier down the road - and is the way I enjoy working.

    Advice to Management

    Start showing appreciation to your employees - it's the little things that go a long way (a 'thank you' here or there). And make it a fun place to work! The offices shouldn't be so somber. Happy employees are productive employees!! :-)

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice fitness center, hassle-free parking, generally good people

    Cons

    It is become quite obvious in my long tenure at Perrigo that unless you have been selected in advance by the powers that be, you will never be given true opportunities to move up and are not adequately compensated for the consistent hard work and dedication that you give. There is too much inconsistency between roles/tasks, job titles, and pay structure. Additionally, the last few years have been very difficult with the uncertainties of being acquired, reorganization, and now upcoming layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to the people that have been there for many years. The knowledge that they have is invaluable and should not be continually overlooked, and they too should be given a chance to be one of your rising stars.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Good benefits. Would recommend to people. Tuition reimbursement program is wonderful and they have a wellness prgram too.

    Cons

    No reward for long tenure. As with most companies these days it is better to move on to benefit your checkbook.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the great work your employees do and reward that behavior.
