Where trust meets care

Ranbaxy – Why Work For Us?


Established in 1961, Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited (RLL) is proud to celebrate 50+ years of excellence in the healthcare industry. Over the years, Ranbaxy has grown to a multi-national organization with operations in more than 124 countries, across six continents, with over 14,000 employees spread around the globe, representing 51 different nationalities.

RLL entered the U.S. generic pharmaceutical market in 1995, introducing its first FDA approved product under the Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals Inc. (RPI) label in January 1998. RPI opened its U.S. office in Raleigh, N.C., in January 1995 and acquired the manufacturing capabilities of Ohm Laboratories (Ohm) the same year. Subsequently, the company relocated to New Jersey in 1998. Today, Ranbaxy has U.S. operations in both New Jersey and Florida, while commercializing and distributing generic pharmaceutical products in all 50 states where at least one Ranbaxy product can be found on the shelves of the 55,000 pharmacies located in the U.S.

Ranbaxy is involved in all aspects of product development, from producing the active ingredient to formulating the dosage form, creating and filing an ANDA, manufacturing the finished dosage form, and ultimately marketing and distributing products to pharmacies throughout the U.S.

People First

‘People First’ is not just a philosophy for us. It is the way we lead our lives at Ranbaxy every day. One of our biggest strengths is the diversity of our people and the rich experience that they bring across varied skill-sets, backgrounds and cultures. What binds all Ranbaxians together is the common thread called Values in Action. We believe in nurturing our people and ensuring their growth, alongside the growth of the organisation. Our people are at the heart of our business. They are responsible for having taken our organisation to the heights that it has scaled and are preparing themselves for its next big leap.

At Ranbaxy, we believe that human capital forms a critical part of an organization's portfolio of privileged assets. Ranbaxy is an international pharmaceutical company with over 14,000 employees. Whether in the manufacturing or administrative areas, we offer employees opportunities to play important roles in the development, manufacturing and marketing of our product line.

We offer the advantages of working in a mid-sized company where employees can have broader, more diverse roles and get to know others in many areas. The Ranbaxy of today provides a variety of opportunities for all employees to help build the Ranbaxy of tomorrow.

Ranbaxy is a dynamic, growing organization and is open to receiving resumes from qualified individuals. We seek educated candidates who are highly motivated, business-oriented and tech-savvy.  Ranbaxy is an equal opportunity employer.


We have a strong belief in a performance-oriented culture. Employees are recruited, rewarded and given opportunities in the organisation based purely on their merit. The backbone of this culture of meritocracy is the Performance Management System, the aim of which is to evaluate employees’ performance in a fair and transparent manner.

Autonomy and Entrepreneurship

Our culture encourages individuals to take risks, be pioneering and enterprising in their respective domains, and always strive for excellence. This is achieved by giving them freedom and letting them discover their potential while working for Ranbaxy. Thus, our focus is on enriching their role and responsibility at every level in their career with us. We take pride in the fact that individuals are given responsibility early in their careers. This helps foster entrepreneurship within the organisation.

Creativity and Innovation

Entrepreneurial culture is all about envisioning opportunities and capitalising on them. This naturally paves the way to innovation. An innovator need not necessarily be a part of the research and development team. Thus, creativity becomes a pivotal element of this culture and is part and parcel of every Ranbaxian’s daily work.


We are an equal opportunity employer and this is reflected in our rich and diverse workforce. Our diversity provides us the strength to reach out to the world and touch the lives of millions worldwide. Our workforce comprises more than 14,600 employees representing over 50 nationalities.

Employee Recognition

In our organisation, there is a continuous and conscious effort to recognise excellence in performance through various global and local programmes across the company. Prompt and instant recognition is given to employees for exceptional performance through various recognition schemes. Regional and functional awards facilitate the recognition of employees’ involvement and inputs towards the realisation of the regional and functional goals. Our Global Appreciate Programme is a common platform for recognising exceptional performance across the globe.

Ranbaxy Laboratories Inc. (RLI), also a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ranbaxy, is its branded prescription division in the US.

Ohm Laboratories, Inc.
Ohm Laboratories, Inc. (Ohm), acquired by Ranbaxy in 1995, manufactures prescription and Over-the-Counter (OTC) drugs in solid dose forms (capsules and tablets) and is U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) approved to manufacture controlled substances.

Ranbaxy launches acne drug Absorica in US

Ranbaxy Laboratories Inc, the US-based wholly owned subsidiary of Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited, has launched of Absorica (isotretinoin) 25 mg and 35 mg capsules in the US. Absorica, a product licensed by Ranbaxy from Cipher Pharmaceuticals Inc, has become the most prescribed branded oral isotretinoin in the US, as per a recent independent survey conducted with dermatologists. It is indicated for the treatment of severe recalcitrant nodular acne in patients 12 years of age and older.

Due to its high lipophilicity, oral absorption of isotretinoin is enhanced when given with a high-fat meal, however, Absorica, which is formulated using patented Lidose technology, can be given without regards to meals. The fasted AUC0-t of Absorica is approximately 83 percent greater than that of Accutane, while both products are bioequivalent under fed conditions. Absorica is therefore not interchangeable and not substitutable with generic products of Accutane.

Dr Ashish Anvekar, Vice President of Brand Division North America, Ranbaxy, said “Since isotretinoin dosing is weight-based, we are most pleased to make available these valuable, additional dosing options exclusively for Absorica. This will give prescribers the enhanced flexibility, to tailor the isotretinoin therapy depending on the patient’s weight, and benefit the group of patients who are in that weight range, irrespective of their dietary intake. Ranbaxy continuously seeks to innovate and bring value based options to the specialty of dermatology and patients.”

    I worked at Ranbaxy as an intern


    Offices have a community-like environment. Everyone is very willing to help and answer questions. There are plenty of opportunities to socialize, such as an employee softball team. Additionally, employees are encouraged to have a good work/life balance with early dismissals on Fridays during the summer.


    The traffic outside of the Princeton Forrestal Village becomes nightmarish around 4:30 pm and makes for a very difficult commute either northbound or southbound on route 1. Other than that I enjoyed my time there very much.
