One of the top companies in the industry
Human Resources Manager (Former Employee), Plainsboro, NJOctober 24, 2013
Pros: dedicated people
Cons: not alot of advancement opportunities.
Hard work, long hours, can be rewarding. Every day is different. Work is diversified. Lots of politics which you must be able to handle if you are to succeed. Most of my co-workers were great. The best part of the job was the ability to work independently and 'make a difference'.

swiss based compnay
Senior Chemist, Lab Head (Former Employee), Princeton, NJJanuary 22, 2013
Pros: they are swiss
Cons: they are swiss
This is a swiss based comany that has always struggled to work in the US market. Progression is based on relationships, mentors, and friendships with managment. Skills, abilities, accomplishments really don't mean to much here. You basically need to swiss or really good at sucking up to get ahead as an american.

difficult company to work for
Compounder (Current Employee), Plainsboro NJJanuary 7, 2013
Looking at their track record the last 12 months they have been UNABLE to pay people correctly. Massive problems with the payroll department and nary a week goes by that there is not some major payroll issue or errors in multiple paychecks. They pay every two weeks. The problems are funneled up to payroll through middle-management and they sure don't – more... have time to reconcile these issues. Workers are inconvenienced and have to wait a long time to get paid.
This used to be a great company and ever since the management changed about 10 years ago it has been NIGHTMARISH to work at this branch. They have gone to SAP system and their tie-ins with payroll is stilted.
They have gutted their benefits package and eliminated the "nice" things they used to do for their employees. *sigh* - you can tell the Europeans are no longer calling the shots. – less
