    I have been working at Catalent Pharma full-time (More than a year)


    Great people and job opportunities. Feels like a small family company in a big company atmosphere. Been here 1 year and love it.


    The cafeteria is not the best, could use some improvements. Would like there to be more food options for the night shift than vending machines

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, great positive environment, love it
