Distribution Associate (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – April 22, 2013
The best part of working here are your coworkers. Management is awful, they micro manage, play favorites, gossip, and lie. They are more concerned about the money they will lose rather than their employees. Most of the employees who work in the warehouse are temps, and they do this so they don't have to pay benefits. They fire you once you approach a year of employment since that is when the contract expires. Adecco is the temp agency, and they are just as bad. You are not allowed time off if you're a temp without getting into trouble, so don't plan on getting sick or taking a vacation unless you don't care about not having a job to return to. I could NOT wait to get out of this place!! They also require mandatory overtime on weekends, and if you don't come in, they take away your PTO (if you are an employee)
Packaging Technician (Former Employee) – Mount Prospect, IL – September 11, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of getting there, punching in, putting on uniform and getting our tasks assigned for that day. At this position I a little insight into the packaging techniques of the pharmaceutical industry, and how to maintain a clean and positive work environment. Management was very friendly, understanding and approachable in the way that if you ever had any questions or concerns you could always go to them. Co-workers were just astounding and the hardest worker's I've ever met in my life. The hardest part of the job was the hours I had, 3PM - Midnight, but once you get used to that, it isn't horrible. The most enjoyable part of the job would be working around my coworkers who were just from an array of different cultural backgrounds, so getting to learn about them, their culture and other things of that nature was just an amazing opportunity and made the long night hours enjoyable.
Very rewarding career working with clinical study drugs.
Operations Team Leader (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – January 6, 2014
A typical day at work required overseeing the production floor to ensure all jobs were completed according to cGMPs and customer requirements. It is a daily learning process, with huge rewards when you are acknowledged for your hard work by not only management, but customers as well. For some of the patients that are receiving their medications, we are their last hope. I can honestly say that Fisher is a huge family. We lean on each other during the hard times, and laugh together through the good times. It is a joy to go to work every day and work with my best friends, knowing we are making a difference.

Controlled Substance Specialist (Former Employee) – Bristol, PA – September 30, 2013
When Acculogix first was bought by Fisher it was an amazing place to work. I place you couldn't wait to go to everyday. The company changed greatly since then. The largest change was the management style. Back then the management was wonderful about working to balance family and work and always was willing to lend a helping hand in every department if needed. Over a few years the managers changed and became more "supervisors" and "business minded". Although moral went down it was still not a bad place to work; benefits were good, salaries were okay, and there were always promotion opportunities.
Pharmaceutical Packaging Technician (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – January 9, 2013
What I will say about working at Fisher is that they truly care about the welfare of others. They take extra precautions so that the work runs smoothly and there are no mess ups. People's lives are at stake every day you come in and prepare to label, bottle, blister, or package up drug. Fisher makes sure we follow procedure carefully step by step. I'd say the only hard part about the job is when it's time to purge a room, especially if it's a big room. All in all Fisher is a good place to work and they take care of their own.
Operations Team Leader (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – February 17, 2014
As an Operations Team Leader, I was responsible for overseeing and guiding my team to ensure production needs are met. This is a pharmaceutical company who's primary function was to manufacture and package clinical trial drugs. There is such a strong sense of family and the employees are eager to work together to do whatever it takes to get the job done. The most rewarding part of the job is knowing you are packaging drugs that may be a patients last hope at living a normal life.
Quality Assurance Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – September 9, 2013
I loved ALL the different positions I held while at Fisher. The people that work there are hard working & very loyal. Unfortunately, I feel that the structural management changes they are making, along with how the over all company is being run, is not a company I would want to be working for. I loved working for this company for many many years up until the end when I felt the best thing I could do for me was leave.
Clinical Packaging Technician III (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – March 9, 2015
When I started working at Fisher I really enjoyed it. The people are great, and from spending so close time with them, they almost become family. But that is maybe one of the only great things about working here. I have learned a lot from my job here but I am trying to leave because I would like to advance, and they don't make it possible for many at Fisher.

Flexible, great management, good hours, M-F 8-4:30, managed clinical trial inventory, great co-workers, I loved working with the people, it was stressful at times because we were at the end of the supply chain so if there were any delays we had to scramble to ensure that the patient got the drug on time.
