Sr. R&D Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Exton, PAFebruary 5, 2015
Very busy R&D group, focused on new product development for Plungers and Vial stoppers. I learned a lot about rubber compounding and mixing. Management tends to lack knowledge of areas in which they control and leads to miscommunication on projects. The company pays well, but tends to lay off people for no real reason.
Pros
good pay and benefits, great employees
Cons
management, nepotism, layoffs

Machine Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Williamsport, PASeptember 16, 2014
Good jobs in a very clean environment. Air conditioned during the summer and comfortably warm in the winter. I wear a t-shirt year around. There is some disconnect between management and the labor force. Co-workers are very friendly and supportive. I can honestly say that it is the best job I have ever had.
Pros
benifits and good pay
Cons
weekend shift and working holidays.

Everything that's wrong with corporations West Pharm embodies.
Molder (Former Employee) –  Jersey Shore PANovember 12, 2013
I recently was left go from West Pharmaceuticals in Jersey Shore PA after only three weeks. At the time I was in their "training program" which was a joke! I was training to be a molder by a team of trainers who engaged us in little hands on training & a lot of trivia games and silly team building exercises. You're made to stand during training because you will stand during most of your 12 hour shift which I find borderline inhumane. If you want to stand for hours on end performing a dreary task while losing your will to live this gig's for you.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
horrible hours, dreary working conditions & mediocre pay

Bad place to work
Floor supervisor (Former Employee) –  ClearwaterFebruary 29, 2012
Working with the operators was good. People where friendly. The management never talked to the people and if they did, it was to let them know what they did wrong. You where required to work 12 hours a day, 5 days a week and a 6th day every other week. Management made it clear that they did not care about the people. Management made the people feel small and unimportant.
Pros
pay
Cons
you are treated like you are nothing.
