    I worked at Cadila Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

     Beautiful Campus
     Few of the well-known products
     On-time salary, pay scale is bit higher than industry standard
     Excellent team

    Cons

    Overall the company is 20 years behind from contemporary era,It may read exaggerated or pathetic but all the details below is to show a clear and precise picture of Cadila Pharmaceuticals, please contact any present or preferably an ex-employee in case of any doubt.
    • Bureaucratic Culture: You have a long 'Not to do' list to make you feel like you are in a jail. Literally you cannot leave premise without exit pass signed by your manager! Everyone in company is busy with meetings after meetings but with zero productive output, employees prepare presentations before meetings, with all fear and uncertainty attend the meeting and if they are survived, they prepare minutes of meeting followed by preparation for next meeting – A true Cadila story continues with zero real-time execution!
    • Job Insecurity: When you leave for work in the morning, there is no guarantee whether you will return home as employed or unemployed!
    After serving 40 years with the company, if you fail to answer to expectations in a 40 minutes meeting - Congratulations, you are fired within few minutes! Not only for your failures, you may get blamed for others' failure too! You don't have a chance to give any justification as no one is there to listen.
    • No work-life balance: If someone tries to propose 5 days a week or any work-life balance initiative, he/she will have to quit. Forget about 5 days a week, you may be called at 2 am to discuss a silly issue which can easily be discussed on next day or probably it is not even worth a discussion.
    • Unstable HR: Human Resources Department has no role to play as they are not allowed to speak or take any stand; they are not even allowed to be stable in the company. Highest attrition is in HR as any good HR professional cannot survive here being helpless! Those who are worth will either quit or will be asked to quit within 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    • Have humanity, at least respect what your ancestors have build up.
    • Please give some freedom to operate and function when you have hired so many people on the top, people cannot swim with hands and feet tied
    • Remove unproductive people and stop hiring externally, utilize the talent what you already have and stop getting involved into nitty gritty and reviewing people even at executive level
    • Too many cooks spoil the broth - So many people on top will not help.
    • Empower HR before shouting it loud that your HR is pathetic - Give them a freedom and allow them to be the face of company. Let good HR people survive at least!
    • Stop making company a prison and treating employees like prisoners -
    If there is a beautiful campus and infrastructure, let employees own it and be a part of it rather than showing them where to talk, where to laugh and where to breathe
    • Empower managers to build up careers of their people
    • Delegate, delegate and delegate is the only survival
