    I worked at APPCO Pharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small company so easy to learn, ask questions, take on more responsibility, and gain more skills.

    Cons

    Language barrier- everyone is more or less from different parts of India. There is also some weird gender segregation that may lead to discrimination — too much office politics.

    I worked at APPCO Pharma full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Wonder if there are any

    Cons

    First of all it’s not a company it’s like a training center where freshers get training in Pharma industry . They hire h4 ead and opt people and pay them less and they also do h1 for experienced people from India (who regrets of working in this company) The supervisor is very worst and cruel and literally abuses the employees to the core. 8 people in his team resigned in a span of 1 month . If you wanna get bullied...

    I worked at APPCO Pharma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nothing. Can't recollect if there is any even after working one year. Only good is that they do H1 B and it's most easy to clear interview as management doesn't know what to ask.

    Cons

    Micro management, HR is worst. They will watch your lunch box and time through camera what you have brought. Worst environment, non productive. No clue how Pharma business run. All map practice in documentation and analysis. Soon will be closed.

    Advice to Management

    No one can give advise as they r blunt in hearing anyone.

      Pros

      Nothing... It's a hell... Join to spoil your career.

      Cons

      Micromanagement, company needs slaves not good employees, senior management has no clue what is pharma world , 59 people resigned in 4 months. Wanna come into FDA black list please join the company. All malpractices will be asked to do. It's a way to hell.

      Advice to Management

      Stop micro managing and learn what is pharma and implications on human health with the drugs you are manufacturing. It may kill someone. Assist people to develop healthy working environment.
