    I worked at Siegfried full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I do not have any pros to list for this company.

    Cons

    Siegfried was AMP. Same continuous issue with AMP remain because the Sr management still remain. Horrible culture and compliance issues. If you have industry experience dont come here, you'll just get frustrated. If you are looking for experience, dont come here. You wont be tought the right way. There are long hours and no appreciation to loyal employees. Pay is not to industry standard and the benefits are horrible...

    Advice to Management

    Change out you leadership and hire a true leadership team. Buildout an experienced quality team. Your current leadership in mfg and quality are bringing the company down with many compliance issues, no training or experience

    I have been working at Siegfried full-time

    Pros

    Good place to learn contract drug manufacturing

    Cons

    VERY poorly managed. Such a high turnover (going away party almost every week) that seems to have been going on a long time. Very inefficient systems for planning, documentation, training and quality.

    Advice to Management

    Implement metrics to track success and potential areas of improvement.

    A lot of nice people who are very professional. Commitment to quality. Benefits and compensation are good.

    As company has gotten leave, employee became less important. Cannot trust what management says. Lack of investment in people and sites outside Switzerland. CEO more interested in his reputation and post than doing the right thing for the company.

    I worked at Siegfried full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Your coworkers are generally quite nice and people tend to get along - Due to disorganization, there is not a lot of pressing work that has to be done

    Cons

    I wanted to write this review to express my experience of working for over a year at Siegfried. Take note, this is from a Microbiologist's Point of View, so this might be different when it comes to Chemistry, Management, or Production. - The over-arching theme of Siegfried and a reason why I think it fails is because they lack a truly dedicated LIMS system (an interconnected computer database). This means that everything...

    Advice to Management

    - Acquire and build a LIMS system. A person should be able to weigh out product, and participate in experiments without recording every single thing they were doing. If a small portion of the "billions of dollars Siegfried is making" were to go towards forward-technological equipment, the experiments could be carried out much more quickly, earning the company more profit. - Crack down on yelling and insane behavior in...

    I have been working at Siegfried full-time

    Pros

    Wealth of knowledge in aseptic manufacturing, never pigeon holed into one job, you definitely get out what you put in. Management is quick to identify people’s strengths and learning styles, as many new hires in quality are straight out of college, they excel at growing talent when they see it. It's a company that prides itself from promoting within, which provides the opportunity to climb the latter. Everyone is very...

    Cons

    The hours are demanding but if you are able to manage your time (as they said in the interview) it is easy to get in and get out of work on time as well. Base pay is low, but there is amble opportunity to grown.

    Advice to Management

    Increasing base pay will prevent turnover

    I worked at Siegfried full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You obtain a lot of experience and knowledge of pharmaceutical manufacturing. As a validation associate, I learned a lot about different sterilization validations. The knowledge was valuable to my future jobs.

    Cons

    Demanding hours. Management yells a lot. VERY underpaid compared to the rest of the industry. High turnover, especially in Quality and Engineering departments.

    Advice to Management

    A bump in base salary would take care of the high turnover

    I have been working at Siegfried full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's a lot to learn from working in a contract manufacturing company like Siegfried. Many different types of products and projects to see. There are some great people working here and when you have a solid department, there's a lot that goes right.

    Cons

    Schedule can be inflexible and long when your work is tied to manufacturing. QA, engineering, production, microbiology. Manufacturing a certain drug can take 8 hours to 24 hours. More if there are problems during the manufacturing process. If you are an engineer leading the project, expect to stay overnight. If you are a QA overseeing and supporting 3rd shift, expect to stay overnight. If you are a microbiologist or micro...
