    I have been working at Catalent Pharma full-time


    I committed nearly half of my career to Catalent and although I had good opportunities to leave over the years, I choose Catalent over and over for several reasons:
    • CTLT’s senior leaders are passionate, committed and inspiring. They lead a fast-paced, dynamic and patient-oriented company; with a global and diverse business.
    • As a global company, CTLT is neither large nor small; that makes it the kind of workplace where you are not just a number, can be noticed and make a difference.
    • Careers here are as fast-paced as the company is. If you are motivated and up to the challenge you will experience diverse and exciting experiences.


    Catalent is a young publicly-traded company that is maturing while growing fast! This added to its uncompromised ethical principles does some time create a hectic environment, with multiple conflicting objectives that may present a challenge the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the challenges, the future looks bright, keep up the good work!
