required to work hard and always be available - after hours, weekends and during vacations.
people who rose within the organization tended to be individuals who were not in tune with what was going on within the organization

This place will burn you out quickly. If the long hours and weekends don't kill you the lack of appreciation will. Look elsewhere!

The company promises good "culture" and benefits such as Friday hours but the majority of the employees in my department (the ones that actually work) never get to enjoy many benefits.


Management promotes idiots who have no prior experience.

If you are really interested in finding an innovative place to work, stay away from Emergent BioSolutions. They talk about innovation, but there is only talk. Nothing innovative is done by the company. There is no thinking, they are not interested in anything new, leaders have no idea what they are doing and no real experience, people promoted based on they ability to praise the management
Pros
pay
Cons
everything else

Growing and in some ways exciting company to work for. A lot of positives - good corporate culture etc, but a lot of politics in getting promotions.

The people are at the heart of this company. Colleagues were outstanding. As the company grew, management lost site of staff and instead of truly working on the culture they resorted to a façade.
Pros
people, collegiality, compensation
Cons
