    In all these process, there is no systemic or modern methods are implemented.

    They will have to closely watch how the factory is operating, instead of controlling everything from head office. They will have to implement lean and six sigma to greater scale.

    I have been working at Orchid Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have got freedom in doing my task, the top management is always approachable, supportive in my actions. They trusted my abilities and given a location function to handle. Yes I'm individually handling the R&D centre HR functions.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company is running in loss and thus it leads to tight and scarcity in all departments. Handling the manpower in this condition is biggest challenge. Retaining people is tough.

    Advice to Management

    Communication regarding the organisational development should be given to all employees. Strong decisions should be made in all aspects. Not to beat around the bush.

    I worked at Orchid Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Orchid for almost two years and inspite of being a huge organization, we were like a small knit family, each one knowing others name although the employee base was 600+. Employee engagement is well taken. Open Communication practiced.

    Cons

    Management needs to accept employee suggestions as well. Politics at very senior level which should be eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Long way for success but with the right leadership, Orchid can achieve unfathomable heights.
