Lonza Employee Review
Bend Research > Capsugel > Lonza
I started right at the end of the "Bend Research, Inc" aka the "cowboy days." Then came Capsugel and along with it more stress, more buzzwords and attempts to improve low morale. Lonza bought us next and while many of us were optimistic, the global corporate leadership did not do much to improve the site. On a bonus, Seran Bio and Thermo Fisher were able to acquire a lot of good talent!
Ratings by category
Nice facilities, some free food and drinks, on-site gym
salary and raises are low for the industry, only managers see most of the bonuses and raises, horrible benefits, Very high turnover
As a CMO, Lonza is very sensitive about bottom line. A lot of decisions we make are based on getting the best profits out of the work. It is very fast-paced here. Work life balance can be challenging. People are friendly and collaborative, management however is very task oriented.
