I have been working at Catalent Pharma full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Strong Operations team and does a great job in managing cost and margins.

Cons

Weak Finance team, lacks in fundamental accounting practices. Weak growth story, not been able to drive growth without acquisitions. Weak sales and HR processes. Big Old boys network...very difficult for outsider to succeed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A major shake up of the sales and finance functions is needed for me to recommend this company to anybody.

    I worked at Catalent Pharma full-time for 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
