Don't work here
QC Analyst (Former Employee) –  West Columbia, SCMay 20, 2018
I do not know where you are coming from, or why, but unless you are absolutely desperate, do not work here. Turned over about 13 chemists while I worked there.
A typical work day will last about 9-11 hours, five days a week on a 40hr/week salary pay. No comp time, very little vacation time, no sick time. It gets very frustrating, very fast. CEO just thinks that she can fire anyone who disagrees with her and hire someone else. Upper management unapproachable and demeaning. Mid level management was often clueless leaving you to either guess(which you do NOT want in a pharma field) or go to the top management with questions. The hours and volume of work were demanding, the management demeaning, and the hardest part of the job was waking up every day and knowing you had to go in and deal with it again. An analyst could be an octopus and still not be able to keep up with the volume of work. You would have a full day of testing slated, and throughout the day be interrupted 3-5 times to do rush testing or other things due to poor planning/too many projects. Not having enough time to do something wasn't an acceptable reason.


TL;DR: toxic company, bad management, long hours, too much work/stress
Pros
Free lunches some times
Cons
atmosphere, no sick pay, stress, too much work, rude managers, etc..

Horrible place to work
Sterile Processing Technician (Former Employee) –  West Columbia, SCApril 10, 2018
Poor training and management. Very very high turnover rate. They pay well but not worth it with everything you have to put up with. Everyone is very unprofessional and you never know what’s going on. Lots of managers have walked out because it’s so bad there. I wouldn’t recommend this job to anyone!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else, yes it’s just that bad

Sterile Compounding Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  West Columbia South CarolinaMarch 12, 2018
Nephron Pharmaceuticals offer a very competitive salary. However, the workplace culture is very cut-throat. Due to lack of management the pharmacy technicians behave very unprofessionally.

Nice people but this is Game of Thrones Company
Manager (Former Employee) –  West ColumbiaMarch 8, 2018
This place has some really nice people, but the culture there is like "Game of Thrones". You will not make it past episode 1.

There is too much favoritism. The job you get hired for gets placed in the back burner and you're forced to do something else with no experience in it. I would put in 60 hrs a week and learned that no matter how hard you work its only about the $$$ corporate can push out the door. The blame game is everyday.
Pros
Nice people, friendly
Cons
You are fired over the dumbest things even if it is a lie

Good experience for first lab position
Chemical Technician (Current Employee) –  West Columbia, SCMarch 2, 2018
It was an intense introduction into a laboratory position. It gives a lot of experience in a lab. It can be exhilarating but also stressful. You will keep going through out the day.

Great emp incentives and employee appreciation lunches
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) –  West Columbia, SCFebruary 15, 2018
I enjoyed working at Nephron, but for my role, there would have been no career advancement. Partly because their Orlando plant closed down and a lot of those employees merged with the Columbia employees; making HR very top heavy.
Pros
Great support role relationship with Managers
Cons
No career advancement

Nephron allowed me numerous opportunities to travel and t ogrow in my career in the FDA business. The work culture can be challenging, but overall it can be a good place to work at.

Terrible rude management
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) –  West Columbia, SCOctober 5, 2017
Very poor leadership, training, and overall no clue as to hot to run a pharmaceutical company. Training is non existent and no one knows whats going on. Management is rude and will terminate anyone at the drop of a hat for any nonsensical reason. No raises, no confidence in anyone.
Pros
nothing

Not a bad company to work for and starting pay is decent. However there is really no room for advancement and they have a very high turnover rate. Just wasn't for me.

Quality Assurance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLSeptember 29, 2017
Company relocated to South Carolina and laid off most os the staff and closed it doors. I loved this job and was devastated that the company closed. I have not had another job that gave me the ability to grow as Nephron.

Hard work pays off and you will be rewarded for it. There is no time off during respirtory season so plan your holidays and vacations accordingly. Pay attention to who you make relationships with.

Good starter company for pharmaceuticals
Operator (Current Employee) –  West Columbia, SCFebruary 17, 2017
Good greenfield startup. There is no loyalty if your not in the clic your not going anywhere and neither is your rate of pay. Privately held company. No bonus program, training is lacking for the employee work force on production floors.
With few exceptions there have been no raises for people that have been with the company for over 4 years.
Company does not invest into its employees yet can't understand high rate of turnover.

Job is Okay typical day is putting vials on the line.

If you come in with experience you may receive a decent wage, but negotiate because its doubtful that you will receive a raise unless you get a title change.

If you are needing Pharma experience then this is a place to start, but not retire.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Benefits are expensive for the employee.

It was a place to work
HR Manager (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 13, 2017
The company has good benefits, they pay a decent rate.
It is a place to work, they give you the opportunity to learn an grow within the company. But at the same time they expect you to wear more than one hat.

Productive and smooth environment
Handling products, cleaning, inventory, etc (Former Employee) –  4121 SW 34th street Orlando, FL 32811November 11, 2016
Working at Nephron was decent. There was good scheduling. Payments for working on holidays and bonuses. Finally getting a paycheck every two weeks. However, some cowokers weren't very polite. The environment was sometimes good and other times not so good. But overall, it was a good place.
Pros
Schedule set for one year doesn't change, bonuses when working on Christmas
Cons
OIl spills, the overall that must be worn
