    I worked at Sun Pharma full-time

    Pros

    Overall atmosphere is employee friendly and productive.

    Cons

    It's HR's responsibility to understand the dynamic of the organization and work in a manner and fashion in the company's best interest, and to remember the Human in their department's title. Although the entry level HR employees seem to embody that spirit, it seems that the people who control policy are far too busy playing politics.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of what's going on.

    No advice for upper management. They do their best with the resource at their disposal. I can say I honestly don't know what intermediate management does...

    Pros

    Company has brought in good, talented people.

    Cons

    They can't keep their good, talented people. Indian owned and operated, and does not embrace US work cultures. Micromananged. Terrible communication. Does not provide tools for success, but provides unrealistic expectations and deadlines. Cost saving measures always lead to headcount reduction, never process improvement. For every 2 steps forward they take, they take 5 steps back.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in US leadership to lead US operations, or move all operations back to India. US organization will never be successful until US business practices are embraced.
