Contract Specialist/Group Leader (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – April 24, 2017
Hospira was a great company that allowed me to learn about contract administration and implementing contracts. Management was good and the culture was nice. The hardest part of the job was learning the job and the most enjoyable was the people.
Different groups worked well together to maintain timelines
QA Label Editor (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – April 6, 2017
Once Pfizer bought Hospira, we had to get used to working with Pfizer's way of performing operations. In Hospira, where I was a QA Label Editor (in the Quality Systems Division), I performed change control and redlining, updating specifications and labels. Once Pfizer took over, my group fell under their Regulatory Affairs and Safety Division, however I performed the same functions as I did when under Hospira's Quality Systems Division.

Packaging Designer (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – January 31, 2017
I loved the people I worked with directly. My immediate supervisor was fantastic, fair, knowledgeable and a great mediator. The company seemed to struggle with management and where each department belonged. My department was basically dismantled and as I know it, there is really only one person left there. I believe there was too much emphasis on moving up the ladder and not enough departmental nurturing or the promotion of growth for departments or individuals in one position. It was encouraged to move out of your position and into another.
Senior Manager (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, IL – January 30, 2017
The company was a good place to work with smart people and a fun culture. However with senior management churn the culture eroded. Upward mobility was limited due to constant change in strategy and focus in IT.
it was a productive job that kept you learning new things
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 15, 2016
my cow works and management where great some of the best people i have ever worked for and with the job was hard physically and mentally stimulating as you always had to learn to operate new machines and equipment i loved the learning everyday there was something new to learn
Great team of dedicated employees. The hardest part of the job is the long hours required to meet established goals. The best part of the job is the satisfaction of completing assignments and providing quality results for the customers.
Technician (Current Employee) – Rocky Mount – November 10, 2016
Hospira was a good company to work for...then we were purchased by Pfizer. We are a year in they have shuttered or sold several facilities and are in the process of gutting the facility I work at...the current environment is toxic at best. But hey that's business right.
