    I have been working at Teva Pharmaceuticals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Teva benefit package is good.

    Cons

    The amount of work is incredibly big. There is no care about the employees life outside the company. They only care about the huge amount of work to be done on time. There is no life outside the company, because you have to spend there 9 hours even if they pay you for 8 hours. Managers asume that you have to go to work in weekends to finish your tasks; do not expect time off or payment for that. They do not appreciate your work or your time, they will expect more and more to be done. Some of the coworkers are trying to be friendly, but many of them are too busy to even ask a question in a whole day. Many of the employees are working there from many years so expect that those will be the favorites of the managers and the newer ones will be the ones doing the hard work. Work environment is very stressful. If you are new expect to get the worst tasks in the department, all the other coworkers will try to get rid of the tasks that they don't like and give it to the new ones. The new employes are trained only on those tasks that they must do, nothing else, because there is no time for training. So expect to learn one or two things and that's it, you will spend long hours and days doing only those repetitive things nothing else. You will strictly follow some SOPs writen years ago with many errors, but that doesn't count because you cannot think "outside the box" you just have to follow the SOP.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say thank you for your work! Appreciate people! Share the work to be done egualy between your employees. Try to see what some people are capable to learn and do and try to assign tasks corelated with their studies and experience. Do not hire people with two or more degrees and give them tasks that a beginner can do. Try not to be biased.

    I worked at Teva Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is in line with industry standards. The benefits are somewhat in line with industry standards . Nice company car selection.

    Cons

    Incredible pressure to sell outdated , overpriced products. The managed care coverage for the remaining products is terrible , so even if you can get a physician to agree to use the product there is little coverage.There is generic competition for every product and the pipline is dead. Huge struggle to launch new products effectively. Upper management constantly changes quotas and expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Have more realistic expectations or develop better products

    Pros

    There are none other than a paycheck

    Cons

    If you like being stressed and overworked you will love this place. Management is horrible here and there is lots of turnover in higher managerial positions. The new management that they bring in in worse than what you had before hence all the plant closures.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone with experience and not your buddies. Actually make them go to there areas and not just sit in front office having meeting that accomplish nothing. Get rid of Opex, biggest waste of money that has ever been.

    Pros

    Great location in Research Park. Good products and some state of the art machinery to work with.

    Cons

    Multiple changes of ownership of this company have led to a worst case example of toxic workplace culture. Employees are bitter and confused about their current status, while management makes no effort to clarify the situation. Stunningly incompetent people have worked their way into key operator positions, allowing deficiencies in both language skills and basic mechanical knowledge to perpetuate a dangerous work environment. this is the only manufacturing facility in which I have ever worked where the employees cheered when a process failed due to mechanical or operator issues. Racist, sexist and bigoted speech and behavior is routinely ignored while the management is absent and uninterested. As to be expected,most of the best people have already fled this toxic workplace.

    Advice to Management

    This facility could be so efficient, but it will not run without serious changes. Remove most of the middle management and supervisors and bring in new people who care. Flush out the toxic employees and institute training and oversight procedures. Tell your employees what is going on with the company.

    I worked at Teva Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not much to say good about this employer

    Cons

    Crappie pay, insurance for workers is $178.00 every two weeks and that's just for single and no dependents. Plus it doesn't cover some medication

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a back-woods redneck shop of horrors and join the 21st century

    Gated facility so that disgruntled former employees can't get in.

    Cons

    They cut off a six month contract after two months and screwed us!!!!

    If you are going to hire someone for six months don't withdraw the contract or at least let them know what's going on.

    Pros

    Excellent Pay and Benefits. Although many of the company benefits were not recognized by the "leaders" in my group.

    Cons

    I found the group I worked with to be very disappointing in regards to compliance. Employees asked to train and sign off on approved local procedures and the company integrity agreement, then immediately performing tasks and actions that contradict the procedures. I witnessed and was directly involved in some of the most disturbing examples of falsification that I could of ever imagined. Including labeling activities which was not only dangerous to the patients, but flat out disgusting. If this problem was isolated to co-workers it would have been "fixable". Unfortunately this behavior was fully supported throughout management, including the director of the group.

    Advice to Management

    Be ashamed of yourself if you are one of the people I'm mentioning in my review.
