    I have been working at Catalent Pharma full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard and drive results management will develop you. Flexible work hours. Laid back corporate environment. Great PTO structure. Growing company. Its always busy so you don't have to worry about layoffs

    Cons

    Pay raises are low - 3% is the highest you can get. Healthcare benefits are terrible. They determine your salary based on education and years of experience, not how well you do the job. Someone with 20 years of experience who sucks will make more than someone with 7 years of experience that is a rockstar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making allowances for lazy workers ... It discourages your rockstars and they end up leaving the company.

    GOLD Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Catalent Pharma in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had been asked for an On Campus Interview after speaking to Catalent at a Career Fair.

    I was interviewed by two current GOLD Associates. They both seemed very exhausted and disinterested in what I had to say. They didn't even have my resume on hand which gave me the impression they didn't do their homework or even know who I am. Luckily, I had copies of my resume with me.

    The questions were fairly easy, mostly behavioral. So I talked about experiences that expressed how I dealt with certain situations and showcased my leadership skills.It was mostly one interviewer that asked the questions. The other one seemed to stare of into space.

    When it was my turn to ask them questions, they kept listing all the responsibilities they had to do and how challenging it was. I have no problem with that and I appreciate their candid honesty but it came off in a very unappealing way. It just seemed like they lacked passion in what they do which is a turn off when you're trying to make the interviewee interested in the job. At some point, I asked them a question regarding how this helps their long term career and they had a lot of trouble answering it.

    Overall, I didn't like the way they represented themselves of the company. A week and a half later, I got an email saying that I didn't make it to the second round of interviews.
