    I have been working at Wockhardt (less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a cafeteria with free coffee, tea, and an acceptable number of microwaves and refrigerators. Newer lab for Analytical Development. Company seems to be growing and expanding pipeline and marketed products, and is working to rectify current FDA observations. Benefits upon hire seem to be good. Workload in my lab is at a tolerable level, though some resources are limited, making it difficult to finish things in a timely manner when several projects need the same equipment. There is a good amount of overtime available for non-exempt employees. I've seen several internal job postings lately, so we are hiring permanent employees.

    Cons

    The pay is at a very low end of the range for the geographical area and for the industry in general. There is a frequent rush to get things done with little to no warning of when current projects will be handed to the next team in the line of product development and production. R&D works on formulations, which are handed to Analytical Development, whose test method is eventually handed to Quality Control when the product is approved for marketing. There is very limited communication between these groups as to what the workload expectations are for the week. I find myself feeling lucky if I know by noon what samples I will be getting for the day. Generally, all low level employees (lab personnel, production workers) seem to feel overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key in a functioning workplace, especially in manufacturing of any kind. Let low-level employees in on meetings that exist, so that the people on the bottom are aware of what we are doing and why we are doing it. The individuals doing the grunt work have a lot of experience and have ideas to streamline processes or fix problems you aren't even aware of. Be inclusive, listen, and ask for contributions.
