    I have been working at Tolmar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and 401k matching. Fellow employees are great, friendly and talented individuals and they make coming to work enjoyable.The opportunity for growth I have received here has been great and I have not found that it is in anyway correlated with "who you know" as others have put it. I have seen plenty of people receive well deserved promotions based on their work ethics, experience and attitude. The... individuals that I have worked with in HR have been wonderful and have always been thorough in making sure that all my questions were answered. Also, from what I have seen they do a good job balancing out internal promotions and bringing in fresh outside talent to offer alternative perspectives.

    Cons

    Depending on your shift parking isn't always the greatest. However, there are always spaces available.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and remember there will always be complainers!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tolmar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits and Vacation time. There are few pros. Maybe looking for a new job while you are here is the best you can do.

    Cons

    Management has blatant favorites and if you are not one of them you are treated like trash. To get any recognition you need to be physically hurt or screw up in your job constantly. I have worked endless hours and the only time I got thanked was by a manager who got removed the next week. HR is a nightmare. They say they are there to help and protect the employees but they will punish you for someone else harassing... you. When you at Tolmar sell your soul and give up on life because there is nothing else for you after that.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the CEO and place most of upper management. You are worthless at your job.

    I have been working at Tolmar

    Pros

    Great benefits, job security, company is stable. Fast paced and challenging. Beautiful city, wonderful, hard working and competent employees.

    Cons

    Terrible supervisory and lower management. They black ball people they don't like, will fire for a mistake instead of letting you learn from it. Management think they know it all and won't listen to employees. Terrible annual review system- no goals given so you can't show great work and goal accomplishments. The R&D are obviously the favorite group and get most of the money allocation. Employees who mention... problems to HR are basically told to shut up.

    Advice to Management

    Value ALL employees, not just management and R & D. Stop being reactive but try tone proactive. Get input from all groups that will be affected by new buildings, as it is one or 2 people make plans for everything and important things are missed.

    I have been working at Tolmar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits provided are pretty good, and the health insurance is very good. The company is growing exponentially and offers a lot of job security. It is located in a wonderful area of Northern Colorado

    Cons

    Even though it is fast-paced it is disorganized. Sample turn around in the lab is days instead of weeks. There is no advanced planning to make sure everything is available to produce a product or switch to a different product. Everything is needed right now and it makes for a stressful situation. No one is able to pre-plan their work day because the schedule changes at least daily. The company is growing so fast... that it can't keep up. All focus is on new product development and only realizing too late there is not enough manufacturing, warehouse, office, or laboratory space. All profits go back into the company in the form of research and development. Tolmar doesn't invest in its employees either in leadership or in compensation. As a result there is a ridiculous turn-over rate.

    Advice to Management

    If you make sure your employees are happy and appreciated they will be more productive, even through the hard times. As it stands it feels like the company only cares about the next big drug and not investing in their employees. Finding the right people for the job, better organization and training, more organization in manufacturing, and so much more people in all departments would stay. The consideration to do... profit sharing of some sort or annual bonuses would help. And that type of compensation isn't just about the money. It gives employees a sense of ownership in their jobs and company.

    I have been working at Tolmar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fellow analyst are a hard working and conscientious group. Located in Ft Collins which is a beautiful city.

    Cons

    Mandatory unpaid overtime, huge department turnover, very disorganized, salaries are some of the lowest in the industry, not enough desk and bench space for all of the analyst in QC, not enough HPLC instruments and older models used 24 hours a day so many problems with instrumentation

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to utilize the "open door" policy without repercussions
