Production Operator II (Current Employee) – Rensselaer, NY – August 6, 2018
If your looking for a career with promotions and advancement . Look else were. If you just need a job and don't mind getting past over if your not a rat. It's as good as you can make it. The bosses are looking out for themselves. And if they can blame you for something hold on. Cause it's going to happen.
Hours and days are set
No room for advancement. And lots of childish behaviour
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – May 22, 2018
My duties included cleaning glassware for scientists and dumping their chemical waste. It was not great because they hired me on temp to perm and refused to give me benefits after 5 months with them. I offered them new solutions for the disposal of materials but being so low ion the totem pole your word was less than garbage.
An Employee (Current Employee) – West Lafayette, IN – May 7, 2018
This company is in death throes. Constant churning and throat-cutting of corporate management. Mass exodus of talent due to declining morale. IT is a disaster, and helpdesk management actively works against goals of other departments. Most unbelievably dysfunctional company of my career.
Level 1 Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Burlington, MA – April 4, 2018
AMRI was a challenging and rewarding place to work. You will be instrumental in bring new drugs into our society that could help save thousands of lives. You will learn to be part of a fast paced team in a aseptic environment.
The Compounding Department in ABQ is a hilarious mixture of complete dorks , a few fresh grad nerds with little to no real world experience and a couple of good people with both exp and knowledge.The job itself is somewhat interesting for about a month. Extremely slow paced , the inefficiency magnifies this exponentially.However, the constant hold ups leave plenty of time for mopping walls and floors with various chemical solutions! Intense document control due to FDA. A vast majority of low level to mid level managers have little job experience other than AMRI , brought through ranks and feel fortunate to make the little they get paid and have a title, especially considering many are not intelligent .The salary/ hrly pay is weak however the benefits are good. If you have recently graduated and really need some work experience or you just need a paycheck for awhile this might be a good company.
Great job for experience right out of school but little else.
Research Scientist (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 4, 2018
If you are right out of school with a BS or MS this is a great place to get 3-5 quick years of experience. After this GET OUT! Management picks and chooses only a select few for advancement. After 5 years a TREMENDOUS impact I and several others have never seen a promotion while less experienced and knowledgeable chemists did. AMRI likes to cultivate a competitive non-collaborative culture in Indianapolis. Also, the HR support is horrible and employees are often left to figure it out on their own. There is no advancement here, management simply doesn’t care and the company ensures high yearly attrition rates so they can higher fresh cheap labor!
Research Scientist I (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – January 20, 2018
great place to learn the trade and move on.. people are amazing in department. upper management is terrible, low pay, always too much work and stress. salary is low and fear of losing job is high. get in train and learn, then move on.
QA Inspector (Former Employee) – Burlington, MA – November 21, 2017
The company was bought out by a corporate company, they cut corners to make products/equipment,highly toxic solution to pass QA. I would not sign off on documents that were not true or fudged and that was one of the many reasons I no longer work there.
good experience in the QA field
tainted or broken products are being pushed out to the medical field
Information Technology Infrastructure Manager (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – October 24, 2017
When I was at AMRI it was tough appropriating funding to do what was necessary to support a true datacenter. I was able to document the need for a state of the art server room and work to get it put in place. If you have focus and are willing to work with all facets of management you could get things done.
clean nice offices good benefits
very scientific focused with people who want to define the IT requirements but don't know them
Research Scientist III (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 1, 2017
In my role as catalysis liaison, I am exposed to a wide variety of projects which keeps me mentally engaged. I've enjoyed impacting a wide range of targets in both early stage medicinal chemistry syntheses as well as improved process development.
We've been able to find unique solutions to the synthetic problems facing our team.
