    Future proof the site and its systems to manufacture products too critical to be sent to CMOs

    Pros

    This company has a lot of opportunities for project-based growth if you're willing to work overtime. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The disconnect between different teams results in duplicate work or siloed information. No real understanding of company direction. Yearly layoffs that seem short-sighted and result in the rehiring of positions or in losing employees due to increased work expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with one another. Have a common goal between departments.
