Former Employee - Operational Excellence Leader in Somerset, NJ
Former Employee - Operational Excellence Leader in Somerset, NJ

I worked at Catalent Pharma full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good people in the plants, doing their best with nominal support

Cons

Operations management is a JOKE, from the SVP down through site leadership - the operational strategy (as voiced by the SVP of Global Operations), "Live to fight another day..." There is no coherent long term vision, upper management totally driven by this quarter's financial results, using labor reductions (at any level of the organization) to "make their number. BEWARE, they are mostly GE management on some kind of equity deal with Blackstone and have no vision past the IPO / Sale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a vision (not a brand

    Former Employee - Production Supervisor in Woodstock, IL

    I worked at Catalent Pharma full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some the most dedicated production staff I've ever worked with.
    19 days vacation.
    Good salary.

    Cons

    Meat grinder..... As a production supervisor/manager you are in charge of 80-90 people, many lines, mulitple deviations you are chained to your desk writing reports which leaves little time to spend on the floor. If your a new supervisor/manager looking to gain some experience very quickly this maybe the place for you, if your a seasoned supervisor/mananger keep looking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Divide and conquer. Somehow find a way to divide the workload.
