    I have been working at Catalent Pharma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great learning environment; especially for newer entrants into workforce. If you are willing to work hard, learn the business and open to taking on new and expanded responsibilities, you will thrive in Catalent's culture. Senior management is open minded and generally responsive to making positive change.

    Cons

    At times company's business model can feel complex. Company has over 30 sites around the world. So be prepared to develop relationships with colleagues that are remote and work across time zones.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in internal recruiting resources and GOLD program. We really need that to support growth.

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

    Pros

    Employees feel appreciated. It feels like good changes are happening, but it will take time. There is little overtime work (not applicable to all departments).

    Cons

    The entire company needs updating in terms of software and infrastructure. Processes can be antiquated and unnecessarily complicated. Too much reliance on paper.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people and processes! A software and hardware update/implementation would save money down the line and likely improve the employee retention rate.

    Pros

    PTO accrual
    Could be good to get a foot in the door or if you are content to stay in one position, but otherwise look elsewhere.

    Cons

    Lack of work-life balance, benefits are lackluster beyond PTO amounts, lack of engagement from senior leadership, priorities are always changing without timely communication to the changes, lack of advancement opportunities, too much flavor of the month slogans and initiatives preventing meaningful change, and I could go on and on...

    Advice to Management

    Stop speaking out both sides of your mouths -- Is it patient/safety/compliance first? Or "get it done"? Actually go out and talk to -- and LISTEN to - your people. You might learn something.

    Pros

    Challenging, fast paced, great exposure to Senior Management. The place to go if you are in life sciences and want to advance your career in a company that is results driven

    Cons

    If you want to coast, this is not the place. Expectations are high, and days can be long. Pay is competitive, benefits are average.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work. Focus on patients is the way to go.

    Fast Paced, Growing and yet still a family feel to the place. Really enjoy my co-workers and the relationships I have been able to build these last few years.

In addition, company is very active in our community supporting a variety of philanthropic events.

    Cons

    We are growing very quickly, need to continue to invest in our people and the physical space, this is not a con, but rather need to make sure there is a long term plan to sustain the rapid growth of our customers and our employees.
