    I have been working at West-Ward Pharmaceutical Corp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None. Writing this to make the twenty word minimum. Buyer beware. Cherry Hill location a disgrace. Business is imploding as of this writing.

    Cons

    Poor management. HR is a joke. All good talent has left and bolted to Lakewood. Hire cheap inexperienced people who get no direction.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business to people who know how to run a Pharmaceutical business.

    We have been with West-Ward since March of this year and it is going well so far - not too many changes.

    Pros

    I worked for the company for many years and it was a very good experience. People and culture was nice, benefits were good. There was some transparency with employees and management. The job perks were good, but started to decline as the years went on. People stayed with the company for a long time.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. I didn't have major issues.

    Pros

    good benefits. You will learn a lot about GMP production. A good place to start out college, gain experience, and move on to a better opportunites. The company has a good training program and all the depts work well together towards the common goal of getting safe medicine out the door quickly.

    Cons

    Hard work goes unnoticed. Some depts are very cliquey and you have to suck up to get ahead. Change comes very slowly. HR is a disaster.

    Advice to Management

    Dont make decisions based on idle gossip. Get out in the work areas more and observe who's working and who's not.

    Pros

    Not one good thing to say sadly

    Cons

    It is so bad, no one is happy, everyone hates each other, and will stab you right in your face, everyone lies blames someone else instead of fixing the problem, they are going backwards, employees are leaving in grooves, hostile environment, bulling, favoritism and what's worse you can't even go to there lousy rotten HR Group the suck, they are not for the employees at all, the are solely for the management, I cannot say enough negative demeaning, disrespectful, disgraceful, unacceptable behavior, by adults, it's an absolute hell hole nightmare, the insensitive management that think thier little bit of power really means something, they are laughed at, the management gets a cruise while the real workers just keep working and get nothing or less, once all the experience leaves they will be so screwed, they will shut down faster then you can say STFU, I can go on + on, but I think you got the point! Happy to be gone......

    Advice to Management

    LEAVE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You are worthless, just like you think your employees are,
