    Very down to earth people in warehouse, production, and some management.

    Concentrate more on problem-solving than blame, less meetings for managers, more regimented chain of command.

  7. Too many bean counters in key positions. 'Global' is just a punchline.

    Pros

    Gives great experience if they like you. Open minded in terms of diversification of roles and skill sets, great place to try new things and stretch comfort zones.

    Cons

    HR & finance functions still live in the pre-liberalization India of the 70s and 80s, when 'war for talent' was unheard of and having a job, any job, was considered to be a blessing. Too many people with this mindset are in key positions in HR and Finance, leading to constant dissatisfaction and attrition. Increments (both annual and with promotions) are not just insufficient, they are offensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the term 'global' seriously. It means not just hiring non-Indians, it also means empowering them to the extent where they can take HR/Finance decisions on their own without having to go through bean counters on top.

    I have been working at Dr. Reddy's full-time

    Pros

    Pay is better than a minimum wage job. The experience may work in your favor on your resume. Benefits are pretty good. Some people are nice in other departments.

    Cons

    Unfair. People in the lab are two faced, incompetent, inexperienced, inappropriate, and don't work. The lab is like the movie "Mean Girls". 90% of the time people stand around and talk, and 10% of the time they work. Management has their favorites. This company overall is unethical, unfair, and unpleasant. And unsuccessful. That is apparent with the many recent 483s, the loss of clients, and the several product recalls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be demoted or fired. They dont contribute much. Most of their time is spent talking and sitting in meetings.

    Fire the QC lab management, and bring in professional people.

    Pros

    Family and work life balance.

    Cons

    Really cheap on salary increase for the employees who have been working there for a long time. The only way to make a decent salary is coming in as a new person or being from India and you know someone higher up. Yes you guessed it, a LOT of discrimination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and give everyone a chance.

    I have been working at Dr. Reddy's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is working multiple jobs (compared to working in big pharma where people work in silos). You have to manage your own time but if the opportunity is embraced, you can really learn a lot about the Pharma business because all of the teams are integrated for product development, filing and commercialization projects.

    The work from home/time off is very flexible but varies depending on your supervisor.

    Cons

    The culture of Quality is lacking. The quality team has to fight to keep quality and compliance in mind during the development process. This causes Quality to look like they are holding back time lines and costing projects more money but because Quality review and/or comments were not factored in, it does cause headaches and a push to avoid quality oversight by non-quality teams by skipping the review process. The non-quality teams do not understand the downstream impact.
    Onboarding is very unorganized. The team you will be working with doesn’t always know you are showing up. Training is not ready for you and depending on your team’s travel schedule, you will not be fully trained to perform your job duties for many months.
    The HR team in the US is strongly influenced by the team in India so they are much more likely to pull someone from India for a position then to promote or move a current associate in the US laterally who is just as qualified.
    I have recommended multiple people for jobs through the designated HR process and the HR team lost/overlooked paperwork in one case, had assumed someone was over qualified and would not accept the salary in another case and in the 3rd case they had someone in mind before posting the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide training to management employees. Don’t assume that since they have experience and would like the opportunity to manage people that they are able to do so. The paternal behavior of male Indian managers is interpreted as sexist. The interview questions should be scripted to be sure managers do not ask personal questions (marriage, children) during an interview.
