Experienced several situations where documented violation of safety or standard operating procedures were addressed inconsistently depending upon the visibility of the infraction. Repercussions for comparable infractions would vary from a verbal warning to outright suspension depending upon the level of management involved. Since it was difficult to maintain a need to know basis amongst direct reports, supervision is frequently put at odds with those that they supervise and policies that went largely unsupported by HR left supervision powerless to address many issues.
Inconsistent management and lack of support of policies and procedures
I have been here for over 10 years. This was THE place to work, but in the past several years after the founder had passed away and the business became global.. the benefits and perks that once made this a stand out company have slowly been taken away.

Lack of communication between the supervisory staff and upper management. Provided additional OT hours without a word of appreciation or compensation. Excellent benefits package. Job is not secure as two massive layoffs have already occurred and more are to come.

Mylan pays good but has started upping the insurance which is still cheap. The deductible has raised from $100 to $700 for company people over the last 2 weeks. Dental is $50 every two weeks. Company only matches 401k up to $1300 for laborers. Very poorly education employees. Employees are very old school and hard nosed.

Note: I worked as a contracted employee through a staffing firm.
People talk about how Mylan is one of the best employers in Morgantown but I found them to be quite the opposite. The culture at the Greenbag Road location suffers from the "who you know" trap. It's impossible for any work you do to be recognized or appreciated, make any sort of advancement, or generally enjoy your job at all if you're not part of an "in" clique. I routinely saw certain co-workers be talked down to and reprimanded for things that others, who had been there longer or were buddy-buddy with my manager, were able to get away with with impunity.
Management is a joke, they shift as much work and blame on their underlings as they possibly can, even at the expense of others' ability to get work done. I witnessed my manager pull coworkers away from their regular duties to perform trivial and menial tasks that were the manager's responsibility, which lumped more work on the shoulders of myself and others in my department. Since I worked in a department that was constantly busy due to fielding incoming phone calls from Mylan employees across the globe, having even one coworker unavailable made the work load vastly heavier for the rest. The best part was that the gentleman who was pulled from his regular duties was obviously someone who was "in" with the manage. While he was performing the duties the manager should have been doing, he was typically browsing the internet and being paid to screw around while the rest of us shouldered an increased work load. This was a very regular occurrence.
We weremore... expected to submit corrections to help documents that are available, but when doing so as a contractor, any suggestions I made were routinely ignored until an actual Mylan employee made them, in which case that employee was lauded for their efforts. This happened to me personally on three separate occasions. Additionally, most concerns raised by my fellow contracted employees were ignored.
Training was insufficient, the previously mentioned help documents that were available were out dated and included instructions that weren't blatantly incorrect, but we were still expected to know how to do everything without questions because "there are documents available."
Finally, the department I worked in provided IT support. I enjoy the line of work because I enjoy helping people and solving problems. That's not what they want you to do at Mylan though; you're supposed to worry about your metrics such as your talk time and your resolution rate and how much time you spent in the phone queue being available to take calls. I understand this is a personal issue, but the corporate culture of Mylan is 100% focused on their ability to make money, as if their relocating their headquarters to the United Kingdom and being registered in the Netherlands to avoid paying US taxes isn't enough of an indicator.
TL/DR: Management is a joke, culture is focused on revenue, they don't care about their employees (cause, you know, paying their CEO 8 million a year is fine, especially while having an understaffed, overworked and contracted first line of IT support for employees spanning the globe), you will not be happy or advance if you aren't part of a clique and/or know someone important.less

Mylan Pharmaceuticals, being a fortune 500 company is a great place to work and one can gain valuable experience if employed here. The two biggest problems I had with the company were that the individuals working there were extremely arrogant, and the job security is absolutely terrible. I cannot count the number of people who were terminated for very mediocre reasons, even after they had spent 10 years building their career here. It is, however, a great place for interns or college students, however I wouldn't plan on building a career here because of the job security.

This company is very shady and likes to sweep mostakes under the rug and act like they dont exist. If you point point out anything you notice they WILL MAKE UP reason to let you go in fear of being exposed for they really are.

Do not treat there employees very well. To many managers not enough workers all way short staffed. Treat employees like there just another number. And has the good old buddy system going on if you know the right person you will climb the ladder if not you get stepped on.
