            I worked at Piramal Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

            Pros

            The people, but most of those people have left in the past two months, so I’m not sure if that pro is still applicable. Other than that, the only pro is that you’re located in the bourbon capital so when you go home (if you actually get to go home and have free time to do things other than eat, shower, and sleep) you can drink your work miseries away.

            Cons

            Top down communication is terrible, unless you’re one of the favorites, then you already know what will happen and you gossip about it to your fellow coworkers. Poor planning and execution. There is always an issue or a supply shortage and the company will not pause or evaluate the issue to put in an actual corrective action that remediates the problem. The corrections only get you to the next batch or the next day. The...

            Listen to your employees, but from my past experience, you won’t or you’ll say you will and then make empty promises.

            I worked at Piramal Enterprises full-time for less than a year

            Pros

            Good place to learn pharma fundamentals. I would recommend working here ONLY in order to make yourself more marketable for a job that will pay better with better work-life balance.

            Cons

            Gossip is rampant and not discouraged by leadership. Fear-based culture is evident. HR is very hands-off and has to be pushed to make decisions (hiring, promotions, etc.). Goals are unrealistic and unattainable, resulting in near-constant failure and subsequent poor morale. Leadership provides unprofessional advice ("ignore emails if you can't deliver what is needed" "avoid this person because they don't like you")....

            Advice to Management

            The overall low tenure of employees should tell you what you need to know. A greater emphasis needs to be placed on employees as assets, not just as machines who push out products. KPI need to be thought of more than once a year. Almost no professional development training is provided and the pay is not reflective of the work you are expecting from people. If you want people to stay instead of getting experience and...
