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

    Pros

    Family and work life balance.

    Cons

    Really cheap on salary increase for the employees who have been working there for a long time. The only way to make a decent salary is coming in as a new person or being from India and you know someone higher up. Yes you guessed it, a LOT of discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and give everyone a chance.

    I have been working at Dr. Reddy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is working multiple jobs (compared to working in big pharma where people work in silos). You have to manage your own time but if the opportunity is embraced, you can really learn a lot about the Pharma business because all of the teams are integrated for product development, filing and commercialization projects.

    The work from home/time off is very flexible but varies depending on your supervisor.

    Cons

    The culture of Quality is lacking. The quality team has to fight to keep quality and compliance in mind during the development process. This causes Quality to look like they are holding back time lines and costing projects more money but because Quality review and/or comments were not factored in, it does cause headaches and a push to avoid quality oversight by non-quality teams by skipping the review process. The non-quality teams do not understand the downstream impact.
    Onboarding is very unorganized. The team you will be working with doesn’t always know you are showing up. Training is not ready for you and depending on your team’s travel schedule, you will not be fully trained to perform your job duties for many months.
    The HR team in the US is strongly influenced by the team in India so they are much more likely to pull someone from India for a position then to promote or move a current associate in the US laterally who is just as qualified.
    I have recommended multiple people for jobs through the designated HR process and the HR team lost/overlooked paperwork in one case, had assumed someone was over qualified and would not accept the salary in another case and in the 3rd case they had someone in mind before posting the position.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to management employees. Don’t assume that since they have experience and would like the opportunity to manage people that they are able to do so. The paternal behavior of male Indian managers is interpreted as sexist. The interview questions should be scripted to be sure managers do not ask personal questions (marriage, children) during an interview.

    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.

    Pros

    Excellent policies for employees. One of the best HR systems, Gives equal and fair opportunity for people to enhance their knowledge and skills. Best IT practices. It was a pleasure and honor to get a chance to be associated with this company.

    Cons

    Salary policies need to be looked at. At one level two equally deserving persons may have a huge difference in their salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the contract workmen who are equally important and a valuable contributor to Dr. Reddy's success.

    Pros

    Nice people, good culture. People are approachable at all levels. Gives good exposure and experience and has a good reputation in the market.

    Cons

    Muddled strategy, the company does not know what it wants to be when it grows up.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better, and give the HR function a makeover. In today's competitive environment, you need to work to retain the best people and not be smug/complacent about it. People are not indispensable, but they are not commodities either.

    Great working environment. Company is on the rise. One of the better manufacturing plants in the area. Far more friendly people than usual. Willing to spend money to do things the right way.

    Cons

    Wage scale a little low for skilled trades. Every decision seems to take forever. Advancement opportunities are pretty rare.
