This place sucks
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCMay 10, 2018
I worked in production and the manager was a joke people were getting promoted to supervisor just because there friends with the manager. They show a lot of family member work there and they will always be promoted even if there not qualified.
Pros
Easy job
Cons
Poor management

Used to be great
Project Management (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCApril 2, 2018
Almac used to be a fantastic company to work for but unfortunately the company's vision and goals started to change drastically. The integrity and quality of work, customer focus, and employees are no longer valued. It seems management became focused on micromanaging individuals and lost sight of the company objective- to get drug product to patients in need.

Work-life balance is a joke... New employees aren't properly trained due to having unqualified managers thus adding to the workload of the few experienced and knowledgeable employees.

However, most of the employees are overall great people to work with! There's quite a bit of stress due to being unnecessarily micromanaged and new folks not receiving proper training, but work aside, awesome coworkers.
Pros
Benefits and PTO, job security, coworkers, and the work we do
Cons
Management, hours, workload

Poor management and culture
anonymous (Former Employee) –  Souderton, PAJanuary 7, 2018
This has the potential to be a great company. The PTO is generous and the benefit options are decent. There is a limited ability to advance depending on the department you are in. Favoritism is rampant. The HR department is toxic and quite honestly, the worst I have seen. They manage people out of the company. There was an issue a while back and an entire division, 800 people, didn't receive paychecks. Some staff at the HR level told employees that complained, that they shouldn't be living paycheck to paycheck.
Pros
Pto, great colleagues, free coffee
Cons
health insurance expensive

Operator (Former Employee) –  Audubon, PADecember 27, 2017
This is a place not based on skill or how hard you work . They build & break who they feel like. It’s heavy favoritism & poor management. The communication is trash. I would not recommend working at this place. If so get in & look for something else fast.

Love this job
Credit Specialist (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCNovember 6, 2017
This is my dream job. It has good hours, amazing compensation, good people who are very nice and everyone always speaks. A diversed group of professionals with backgrounds of all walks of life. (All love) A bit Micromanaged in the beginning however, once you prove that you are trust worthy your hard work pays off. They let up a bit. I met the owner of the company and she is a dream. She always smiled, spoke to everyone in the company. She even shared her pictures of her dog with us. Humble environment I love that about this company. We are making a difference. Everyone has a place and is welcomed with open arms.
Pros
Friendly environment, patient, free coffee, free latte, free tea, cheap vending machines, face paced, one team one dream
Cons
None

Worst micro managed place i ever worked
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  PaSeptember 29, 2017
Place is terrible. Was there 4 and a half years with no advancement. You apply for internal jobs and you don't even get an interview unless your part of the "group". Management praises the bad and gives it hard to the people that work. If you don't want to be part of a click don't work here. Thays the only way you will make it. So much back stabbing going on its pathetic. You can't go to HR in confidence behind closed doors cause they will throw you under the bus.
Pros
Good PTO
Cons
Micro managed. Terrible attitude with other employees.

Bias, non productive, to many family members working together
Production Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Souderton, PAJuly 26, 2017
Nice hrs and a very nice building in Souderton Pa. But shadowed by a lot of favoritism, bad management, too many family members working together and a very hostile environment. Nice easy job but the lack of professionalism is killing it for much of the few talent in there.

Positive environment!
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Souderton, PAJuly 19, 2017
I find the environment to positive and I legitimately enjoy coming to work everyday. The people are what make this company great and although there are thousands of employees, it truly does maintain the Almac family mentality.

Gym, canteen, and easy commute are also a huge plus!
Pros
Shift hours, salary, on-site gym, canteen
Cons
parking in the afternoon can be tight

Favoritism displayed and lack of accountability
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Souderton, PAJuly 12, 2017
Almac management has been allowed to show favoritism to employees that are not productive to the work environment. They do not hold people accountable for blanket accusations and base decisions on hearsay. Managers are not required to improve process but allowed to hold staff accountable for counter productive processes, errors, and overall inefficiencient systems.
Pros
Health benefits, pto, flex time
Cons
Favoritism, inefficiencient systems, unprofessional management
