    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    The benefits are competitive with the industry.

    Cons

    Management is hostile towards their employees. Employees are promoted based on favoritism with little regard for work ethic. Employees are told not to work long hours, but the amount of work expected from them requires it (unless they're a management lap dog). Other employees are cruel to each other in order to get ahead. Management has no experience outside of Tolmar, and therefore have no idea what they are doing in regards to following the Code of Federal Regulations. The director of quality is unqualified, unsympathetic, and makes rash decisions that have to be compensated for down the road.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.


  5. "Packaging Tech I"

    Pros

    Insurance and hours. Company events and several holidays off paid. Seems to be growing a lot and have potential to be a positive place to be.

    Cons

    Can be hostile environment, manufacturing is not very friendly or positive place to work. To much negativity from senior employees.

    Advice to Management

    Moral needs to be increased.

    "Arrogant and Abusive Management!"

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Can't think of any positives.

    Cons

    Tolmar's senior management has:

    1. Created a caustic culture that is characterized by the use of only one motivational tool - fear.
    2. Made really bad (bordering on incompetent) investment decisions that led to employees losing their jobs and whole business units being liquidated. All this without consequence for the senior leaders making the poor decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to owners - clean out upper management or hold existing upper management accountable for their bad decisions (and then clean them out).

    I worked at TOLMAR full-time

    Pros

    They have a good 401K match after the first year. The company is growing. It is located in beautiful northern Colorado

    Cons

    As a professional, I was offered a job if I would take a pay cut. When I said no, they said they would pay me as a lateral move since this was a lateral job and HR got really upset when I said no. They finally came up a with a really great offer, but I knew that HR would punish me if I took the job

    Advice to Management

    HR is supposed to balance the needs of the company with the needs of the employees, who are a resource. HR should not be looking to screw employees to help the company. This is unwise long term

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

    Pros

    Tolmar is a progressive, positive working environment that has many opportunities to grow and expand on your career pathways. The benefits package alone rivals other companies in Fort Collins as well as in Northern Colorado. I enjoy going to work, I feel good about the product we are producing, and can support my family with my paycheck and insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Tolmar has progressed in the last 10 years to become a competitive pharmaceutical business. A con would be since we have see explosive growth, our buildings are already becoming too tight for the current staff to fit in!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work at ensuring I have a company that I can retire from and be able to stay in Fort Collins (area) for the rest of my career!

    I have been working at TOLMAR full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for several companies and none have been as involved in the betterment of their employees, company, and community as I have seen with TOLMAR. TOLMAR rewards hard workers and gives so much back to their employees. Between the benefit of amazingly talented coworkers and the product line that promotes the health and wellness of others TOLMAR is truly an amazing company to work for and I take pride in telling others about where I work.

    Cons

    There are none. Work is work. If you do the job right you have nothing to lose.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
