    I worked at Aspen Pharmacare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    very friendly and energized staff and nice mix of locals and international people. senior management are strategic, close to the details and listens to feedback. I went to management with a proposal about changing few matters in HR and the business and it was nice to see my suggestions implemented. many opportunities for promotion as the company is growing very fast.

    Cons

    heavy work load. company is hiring many positions but always growing faster than hiring. Mauritius is a very beautiful island but its an island, it is good for those who like simple life and outdoor activities. example 2 movie theaters in all of mauritius. because there are many promotions in Aspen, those who are not promoted created a "nagging group", very small number but can be annoying at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should keep hiring more; management should be more clear with the nagging group on why they will not be promoted because its better if they leave. I know one of them who keep nagging daily that they are not promoted but never leaves

    While owners are getting richer and richer, employees are miracle acrobat workers, and management really mediocre.

    I have been working at Aspen Pharmacare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    By sweating each day like a dog you can learn fast, probably 2/3 tears in one.

    For recruiters Aspen is a gold mining site: they suggest crap, aspen hire crap, crap leaves. And again recruiter is called in to make another process, and so they billed him.

    For investors: Aspen has driven a lot, but operational issues have started to increase stock outs and general dissatisfaction will drive motivation down. The power of the company are its miracle workers, who will eventually get tired.

    Cons

    1. Mediocre management who believe to be god
    2. Some nice "envelops" to overcome some pricing issues with local Ministry of Healths in Europe.
    2. What matters at Aspen is only if and how much sales you bring in. Nobody actually cares about you.
    4. Hiring in Dublin are driven from South Africa with the "precious help of local recruitment..."
    5. Don't expect a pay rise unless you have ruined seriously your life work balance, then you can expect a 3/5% increase against the same level of inflation.
    6. Here in Dublin and also elsewhere company expenses are paid late, very late.
    7. HR does not exist. All across Europe. Try to have an argument internally, you probably get fired in few hours. We have seen this for real.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Management should seriously undertake a full revision of their supply chain operations
    2. When everything is urgent, nothing is really urgent. Revise your priority critical list.
    3. Own your own site.
    4. Good people will keep leaving you if you do not adjust your scale and cut the crazy salaries of people in quality and HR.
