EPA Associate Analytical Chemist, Memphis, TN - March 1, 2017
This company has recently expanded its capacity from statistical sample size testing to full volume lot release testing. Since then, the senior and mid-senior level leadership at the Memphis facility has greatly diminished. There was no clear method to advancement from within other than being a favorite of supervision. Plenty of opportunities to learn and improve so there's never a dull moment; but due to there being 3 shifts, each shift has its own culture. Merger acquisition by AmerisourceBergen occurred in January and they have done a fine job increasing the notoriety of PharMEDium however, there needs to be an established senior and mid-level leadership skills training for morale to improve company-wide.
