Analyst 3 (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJune 28, 2017
Management has no idea what they're doing. The business cannot compete with larger companies like Teva and Mylan. Low pay, long hours, no additional compensation. You'll never get a good review from your manager because they don't want to pay out bonuses. Almost zero job security as multiple people have been laid off to 'flatten the organization' only to have those roles put back in place later with different people. There is a good chance this company won't be here in a few years, and if the site is Lucky it, will be sold to a company that knows what is doing. There are much better companies and jobs here in Columbus, don't waste your own potential.
Pros
Average benefits
Cons
Low pay, poor management, no pipeline

A company in transition
Associate Director (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHApril 14, 2017
WW is growing through acquisition and is going through growing pains. The recent purchase of Roxane in Columbus has resulted in a clash of business cultures (Roxane moving from family owned, to public company with WW). It will take some time for the overall business to mesh. Good and capable people at WW.
Pros
Great people, in-line salaries and benefits
Cons
Business that has not had to execute in the public/competitive environment

Moral was horrible there. The associate directors and directors try to intimidate you.
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 25, 2017
I was employee for over 6 yrs. It started out pretty good and even received several promotions. But then the bottom fell out. As a part of management i was treated like a second hand citizen. Sr. Management is horrible and if you are not part of clique then you can hang it up. Management only looks out for their own behinds and don't care about the people who are doing the job. Very tight with money and raises are hard to get unless you are part of the good ole boys network. The raises suck. To much work for only a .30 raise.
Pros
Plenty of paid time off to start
Cons
Associate directors and Directors are a big joke in the manufacturing and packaging departments

Mediocre place to work
Packaging Technician (Former Employee) –  Hilliard, OHNovember 25, 2016
You are expected to learn everything you're first year, if you get stuck with a bad trainer it's on you for doing it wrong. Highly repetitive job and yet employees who have been there 15+ years still don't know how to perform there job. You are required to take tests on everything that you learn. Pay starts at 13.50 and raises are .30 a year if your lucky to get a meets rating at your end of year review. Equipment that is used to manufacture product is faulty and management refuses to fix them. Very shady company to work for. Employee appreciation doesn't exist here, impossible to move up unless your golfing with management on the weekends and are bff
Pros
Inside job, climate controlled
Cons
Management is always turning over. Impossible to move up
