Meet your future colleagues
From Intern to Engineer to Marketing Manager
I started as a production engineer in the Liquid Value Stream. I ultimately found the perfect fit for me as a sales account manager, working with customers to plan and execute new items and promotional programs. My education and experience in engineering did not limit me to engineering roles, but rather gave me a deeper understanding of the company that could be leveraged in different career paths.
Fun, Supportive Place to Grow Professionally
I started with Perrigo Animal Health as a marketing coordinator in the flea and tick category. I transitioned departments from marketing to sales to operations, and felt supported in every role along the way. This is not just a job, but a career where I have a voice to make things better and to shape my path. We can bring our pets to the Nebraska office on Fridays and are always looking for creative ways to make work fun.
Leading in the Military and at Perrigo
I joined the Army after high school and served our country in a single deployment in Iraq and twice more in Afghanistan. My military leadership roles and training courses translate well to my civilian life, and I use these skills daily as a Quality Control Supervisor at Perrigo Michigan Holland. I view employment as trading a piece of your life for a paycheck, and it’s up to you to grow and get the most that you can out of every day and experience. Perrigo is an excellent place for this.
Making Every Minute Count
As a nutrition project manager for toddler foods and electrolyte solutions at Perrigo Virginia, I travel domestically to assist our sites with line improvements and product commercialization. There is positivity and a mutual respect with colleagues at Perrigo that makes working here more pleasant, easier, comfortable. I can talk to anybody here, where I’m not a number or a title, but I’m David.
Making a Difference for Our Global Suppliers
As an Ethical Compliance and Sustainability Manager, I help our suppliers improve their businesses and employee safety practices in ways that matter to Perrigo and to our customers. Sustainability is extremely important to us and our customers, and it’s the right thing to do for everyone. Caring enough to help our suppliers achieve these standards demonstrates Perrigo’s “making a difference” value.
Training Workers and Soldiers to be Safer
Perrigo is the only pharmaceutical company in the Negev region of Israel, and is known for being innovative. But that’s not all that makes us different. We are like a family, created by people working hard together to provide high quality products that contribute to our customers’ improved health. The result is the sense of pride you feel being part of this success. I started with the company in 1992. Every day, I see workers arrive and go home with smiling faces.
The Spice of Life
Perrigo offers many opportunities to discover your talents. I felt supported in every department I worked for, including HR, Operations and Quality/Safety. I recently became a third shift supervisor before becoming a first shift supervisor in tablet manufacturing. They say variety is the spice of life, and at Perrigo, each new challenge is another opportunity to learn more about what I’m good at and to grow.
A Tale from Tanzania
Analytical Research and Development (AR&D) employees pooled together their resources to provide medicine from the company store to two Michigan researchers involved in combating lymphatic filariasis (LF), also known as “elephantiasis,” in Africa. The researchers shared that our donated Perrigo products were well received and very much appreciated. I feel very fortunate to work for a company that makes so many affordable, quality healthcare products.
Best & Brightest
Perrigo has been repeatedly named as one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in West Michigan. This honor is highly sought after by companies across the region and evaluates companies against categories including community initiatives, compensation and benefits, employee development, recognition and retention, and work-life balance. I take great pride in working at a company that cares so much about the work environment it creates.
My husband and I wanted to help a Mississippi family who lost their home in hurricane Katrina. My friends at Perrigo are always telling me they like my baked goods, so I made 13 pies and cakes and brought them to work, selling slices to help fund the trip. I was blown away by the caliber of caring people who work for our organization. We took the trip, working with a team of Kalamazoo area people who, completed the home over the course of one month.
Getting More from Life
Perrigo helped me accomplish my goal to earn a Master’s in Business Administration by assisting in my education from both a financial perspective and with schedule flexibility. Using what I learned while obtaining my advanced degree as well as on-the-job development, I have been given many opportunities to experience different departments and roles while at Perrigo. Along the way Perrigo has rewarded me fairly for assuming more responsibility, and management continues to encourage my personal development.
