Cephalon Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Cephalon, Inc. was an American biopharmaceutical company co-founded in 1987 by pharmacologist Frank Baldino, Jr., neuroscientist Michael Lewis, and organic chemist James C. Kauer—all three former scientists with the DuPont Company. Baldino served as Cephalon's chairman and chief executive officer, until his death in December 2010. The company's name comes from the adjective "cephalic" meaning "related to the head or brain", as it was established primarily to pursue treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.

On August 1, 2009, a Cephalon former employee wrote a review about the company on the GLASSDOOR website:

"Cons: Deep-rooted corruption from the top-down. Political views pushed during corporate venues, much political in-fighting, lacking in true leadership abilities, and not a good place for growth. Let your company get purchased, and get rid of the executive board. The deadwood at the top needs to be shaken loose."

"too many to list..just go find a job somewhere else. everyone left here are the dreads of the earth and can not behired outside of here, hence they have no other option but to stay....people that leave are viewed as traitors..."


"Excellence is not rewarded at Cephalon and in fact, if you pursue excellence too much it may actually hinder your career at Cephalon, where it is more important to not make waves rather than to get the job done well or even get the job done at all"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"No opportunity to do anything other than your niche function. Large disconnect between senior management and the workforce. Constant emails from corporate responding to the media, politics, and investigations into the company started making things seem shady. Cliques weren't bad when I started but in two years they were bad enough that I decided to leave. One group had problems with sexual harassment, screaming matches between PhDs and line workers. If you leave, the company will never rehire you."

Manager says

"Many people got laid off seemingly at random. Also, many smart, talented employees were bored to tears given that they weren't engaged."
