    Pros

    Flexi time, good co-workers, generous holidays

    Cons

    Totally partial work culture, HR does not exist- or it is mere a messenger. Salary structure is screwed up. Top bosses sitting in India does not look at US employees kindly- There is a lot of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good people. No not encourage high chair advisors

    Pros

    Benefits are above average, good experience, on-site lunch, pay can be above average, most people are very helpful

    Cons

    Promotion opportunities, HR, no work life balance, coworkers, undisciplined, poor training, technology behind the times

    Advice to Management

    Site management needs to wake up. The incompetent managers running the lab need to be fired, and real professionals need to be brought in. All workers need accountability for their work and mistakes. The lab is undisciplined and inappropriate. There is too much fraternising between management and coworkers. Workers need to stay busy and stop wasting time playing around, talking, and using company resources for their personal use. Management needs to stop trying to be workers friends and make their own choices. Management is puppeted by workers to get their way. If you're not like the workers, you're shunned. Workers love to drink and party, gossip, backstab, talk bad about each other and other departments. Lab has superiority complex. Lab workers are materalistic, selfish, worldly, and some of the most ugly, hateful people I've ever known. This needs to be addressed. It needs to be stopped. Get good people in the lab. The current workers are a disgrace to the company and everything it stands for!

    I worked at Dr. Reddy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The wages, health and vacation benefits are very good. The only three things I miss about working there.

    Cons

    Management does not work well with the manufacturing labor force. Communication between shifts does not happen. There is no real accountability for the job each shift does or doesn't do. The walk behind fork lifts are old, under powered and slows down production. the plant was opened with an outdated water system that should have been updated before they opened their doors. The vacuum system for the presses is inadequate making them run very inefficient and dirty which makes it difficult to produce quality tablets. The company was hasty in opening the plant without updating essential processes before opening. Plus the Negative feedback that is constantly thrown at the operators make it a real hastle to work there. The Process incidents that occur there would probably be cut down drastically if these issues were addressed. And the management would probably be a lot less stressed and would probably not create such a negative atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down production until these issues can be addressed. The plant might lose a little in revenue for a short time but would easily make it up in a very short time with fewer incidents, better FDA inspections, fewer documentation errors, better management /employee relations and higher quality production.

    I have been working at Dr. Reddy's full-time

    Pros

    Pay is better than a minimum wage job. The experience may work in your favor on your resume. Benefits are pretty good. Some people are nice in other departments.

    Cons

    Unfair. People in the lab are two faced, incompetent, inexperienced, inappropriate, and don't work. The lab is like the movie "Mean Girls". 90% of the time people stand around and talk, and 10% of the time they work. Management has their favorites. This company overall is unethical, unfair, and unpleasant. And unsuccessful. That is apparent with the many recent 483s, the loss of clients, and the several product recalls.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be demoted or fired. They dont contribute much. Most of their time is spent talking and sitting in meetings.

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume for new grads. Healthcare is decent. Has a good meal program.

    Cons

    Raises are below cost of living. Skilled labor is paid less than unskilled. Numerous EEOC and OSHA violations. Management is ineffective and incompetent. I have been working for 20 years and 2 years here. This is by far the worst organization I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Fire and replace the management team.
