    Pros

    Great starter job if fresh out of college.

    Cons

    You need to get out within 3 years. Either a different department or different company. You get treated worse every year and get less and less respect.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the experienced employees better.
    Do more to retain good workers

    I worked at Perrigo full-time

    Pros

    Perrigo takes care of their people. They have good over the counter products that save consumers money over the national brand...and they are just as effective.

    Cons

    Management is stuck in the past. They are having a hard time figuring out what kind of company they want to be when they grow up. They are too committed to the advice of people who have little experience outside of Allegan. It's a recipe for disaster.

    Advice to Management

    Trust people who have experience outside of Perrigo and find a way to get your executive leadership to work together for the greater good.

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

    Pros

    Pay, coworkers, benefits, location. Could be one of the best places to work in Michigan if they would listen to employees.

    Cons

    Bad management, don't seem to care about employees, got too big too fast. No union but needs one. Unfair firings of people they don't like on a personal level. Management seems to have an arrogance about how special they are compared to the workers.

    Advice to Management

    Know how to do the job your supervising. Show employees some appreciation.

    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

    Great area. Small company feel.

    Cons

    Entered continuing cycle of layoffs. No job security at all.

    Advice to Management

    Turn the ship around quickly. Do something to keep top performers. Cancelled bonus and scant merit increases are scaring people away.
