    Pros

    If you are a pharmacist and want to leave community it is good because it gives you the opportunity to start in Industry, the job itself is beautiful if you want to deepen into Galenic Pharmacy. You are in charge of releasing creams, ointments, asepti products, and of formulating other products so you get a lot of experience and insight in the job.

    Cons

    The management is incompetent, very weak and no recognition to success, no flexibility in Holidays. They are starting to implement shift work and instead of making room for more people opening for part time jobs (mothers, students etc) they are loosing good people that would be able to work as hard.
    There are a lot of secrets going on that staff is not supposed to know and this makes a bad environment in the team,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would make them ask for feedback from their employees

    Pros

    A mostly flexible working attitude.A generally friendly atmosphere within departments.

    Cons

    There are many! The chief gripes are that salaries being appreciably lower than uk and regional average. Limited career progression. Lack of quality benefits and very poor pay increases which do not reflect the effort, skills, experience and qualifications of the staff (particularly for those not at management level!). When researched it can be found that the average salaries at the Romford site are now in line with that of the uk pharma average from over 10 years ago!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to relate to staff needs outside of work more. Bring salaries up to uk average for the pharmaceutical industry to attract higher skilled staff and hence improve the efficiency and profits of the company!!

    Cardinal is a great place to learn and grow. Staff was great, a lot of opportunity for internal growth.

    Cons

    Pay was not competitive, bonus structure not that strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the types of people that are leading or managing. Some have been moved to positions because of behavioral issues towards others and are not properly held accountable.
