Company reviews
"Not to be trusted"
Former EmployeeCollection Agent
Upper management kept leading me on saying i would become permanent but outsourced entire department to Costa Rica. Explains why I could never get a geniuin straight answer.

"Per Confezionamento Sterile ambiente PESSIMO"
Former EmployeeOperatore farmaceutico
Se vi piace lavorare in un ambiente nel quale il vostro primo supervisore è il vostro, totalmente NON qualificato collega di lavoro, allora questo reparto fa per voi. Mentalità assai retrograda, l'unico coordinatore che vale la pena di chiamare tale, è ghettizzato dagli altri. E' cambiato da poco il caporeparto, una persona molto valida e assolutamente umana. Confido sinceramente in lui per vedere migliorate le condizioni di vita dei miei ex colleghi.

"Work till your done which could be all day"
Current EmployeeProduction Worker
OT is mandatory start early and end late every day working 10-12 hours. Work life balance is terrible. Management let’s certain people get away with everything while coming down on others.

"Appreciation and Compensation"
Current EmployeeAccounts Receivable Clerk
I feel both appreciated for my work and well compensated. Plenty of opportunity for bonuses if you hit the very aggressive goals. The bad is the post pandemic world where management still thinks being in the office is a must after proving for a year that working from home is not a problem.
