    I worked at Perrigo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    i learned....this was the worst job i have ever had..............it was so demeaning and management allowed it.

    Cons

    unfair labor practices,management, OSHA does not apply to them, not very friendly, beware
    i was treated very unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    check your lines leaders and then check your supervisors. not a good experience. and employees should check their mouths at the door. language is not good at perrigo. if you don't like cussing stay away.

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company store where you can get free and discounted products. Good location between two large cities, a commutable distance and close to the lakeshore.

    Cons

    Management does not have any loyalty to employees and will throw you under the bus to save their own skin. Most of the employees that work there commute and are very negative about the local area and population.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to not only listen to the feedback that employees are giving them but take action on that feedback.

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good starting pay (but don't expect any material increases later on) and good work-life balance.
    It is the perfect place to be if you like to work at company which likes its employees on "auto-pilot" and prefers them no to think too much or be creative.

    Cons

    It is the "Wal-Mart" of the pharma world.. make the cheapest generics and store brand stuff available.. Because everthing needs to be cheap, everything the company does both in and out is cheap.
    Expect little investment in you unless it is 100% directly and immediately applies to what your are doing. The management mindset is "why would i invest in my employees today if they will leave tomorrow"
    Dead end, most offices are located in small towns in the mid-west and the south. There are usually nothing else around so the company takes advantage of that knowing people will have few other opportunities. In order to move up someone else needs to quit/leave/die.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and look what happens to other business who are trying to be "cheap" - they are stagnant or in decline. (JCP, Wal-Mart...)

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good and benifits

    Cons

    Some Supervisors on the production floor act as if they are running a small country and they are the dictator and disregard HR polices. They are contradictive, rude, and treat employees disrespectfully. HR department does nothing about this, even after many employees complain about the harassment. HR’s structure for internal job opportunities and advancements are told to be based on seniority along with experience at times but that is deceiving; they actually do what they want and play the favoritism game, give advancements and raises to people that suck-up instead of the people that work hard and have more experience for the role. During your yearly review they like to attack your individuality and try to change who you are. I mind my own business and stay out of trouble but yet they look for ways to put you down on your review if you’re not one of those people that suck up to management. Last I looked it’s against the law to discriminate you for who are.

    Advice to Management

    The company could be a better place to work for as soon as HR steps up and creates a better policy for equal rights out on the production floor.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great benefits, Good company, The company shows appreciation to its employees

    Cons

    Worked in a department that had completely different policies than the company. It is micromanaged and managed extremely unfair and favoritism is shown. Policies are not followed for certain people and it is very unfair. People are promoted and/or hired not based on their performance and based on whether the manager likes you.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the way some of the departments are being managed and you will see it is very unfair and rules are bent for certain people. One particular department is very poorly managed and needs to be changed to follow the company/corporate policies.

    I have been working at Perrigo full-time

    Pros

    They have great benefits, they organize events for their employees, and it is a stable company to work for if you are looking for a career

    Cons

    Most lab people start out through a 4 month contract, but no one gets hired into the company when their contract is over. Perrigo cares about it's employees, but not contract workers who are doing the exact same job. You can be on contract for 18 months with no hire date in sight. Simply put: contract workers are used and abused with empty promises.

    Was able to have make a relationship with a co-worker where we had to work to complete our work.

    It was a challenge do to the fact they were converting over from Paddock to Perrigo trade dress. Lots of confusion from the Paddock culture to the Perrigo culture .
