    None - management is taking all the money before the lawsuits do.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Purdue Pharma full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    At this point there is nothing great about this company

    Cons

    No promotions. No career frame work in the Wilson and Durham facility. Company is trying to file bankruptcy to ensure that they don't have to pay severance to all the dedicated employees that have been loyal to them for decades. The management team in most of the departments are headed by individuals that have no clue on managing resources (personnel and capital). The turnover rate is very high at this point. The... opioid crisis has made this once great company into one of the worst companies to work for in the RTP, NC. No one trust the CEO as he's a lapdog for the greedy Sackler family.

    Advice to Management

    Time's are tough. I get it. But if you still want to manufacture medicine, you must take care of your workforce that is on the manufacturing floor. These ops and maintenance guys have been ignored for too long. It is just a matter of time before all the best employees will leave the company to work for exciting biotech companies that are penetrating the RTP biospace.
