Temp to hire job. Let go for made up reason
(temp to hire) packaging tech (Former Employee), Golden Valley, MNApril 23, 2014
Pros: nice lunchroom
Cons: everything else
I worked at Upsher Smith in a temp to hire position. I was learning the job as quickly as I could. It was fairly complicated: taking machines apart to clean them and putting them back together again was not simple, but I thought I was learning it as fast as anyone could. One day I got a call from the temp agency telling me that they didn't want me to come back because I wasn't learning the job. That was definitely not true. 12 days is not enough time to learn that type of job. The management kept changing the rules. First I didn't have to get steel-toed shoes, then I needed to get them before the end of the first week to keep the job. A lot of the employees seemed to be nice to a person's face and then stab them in the back. I heard other employees being talked about that way and that is probably what happened to me because I have never lost any other job for a reason other than a layoff or if I quit after well over a year of employment. The break room was nice but not worth wondering if today is the day I lose my job because someone doesn't like me. It also took over a week to get the badge that I needed to be able to get in the door without waiting for another employee who knew me to let me in. Terrible management.

Overall, a upstanding company.
Specialty Sales Executive (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 27, 2013
Pros: good, coworkers, good territory.
Cons: lack of job stability and direction.
Very little job security and lack of a universal goal. I was hired to help with the launch of Trianex, however, although my territory did well, it did poorly nationwide and Upsher-Smith dropped the product and performed layoffs nationwide.

consistently shifting objectives
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MNJuly 25, 2013
Pros: coworkers
Cons: constantly changing standards, favoritism, facades
Usl is going through a paradigm shift. It has lost sight of its values and instead is completely out to make money. Many me too products in development. Great people have been let go for speaking their minds and offering very valid ideas. Work-life balance is limited. Management has been forced to become micro-management because of poor overall numbers. There are many good people, but the overall company has lost sight of what is important. Many people are miserable and drinking the kool-aid is the only way to survive
