    I worked at Wockhardt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work with some awesome people (and some not so awesome people). The company is flexible and will work with you for the most part. You will learn quite a bit in a short period of time.

    If you are a go-getter, this company is great for a short period of time.

    This place has pretty good benefits as well.

    But the reality is, this place is for individuals who don't expect too much, and want a comfortable position. How would I know? The turnover in the time I've been there explains itself.

    I on the other hand, stayed way too long, I know, BUT I did earn another degree while working here, and left soon after.

    Cons

    Once the short period of time is up, you will stop learning, not because there isn't anything to learn, but you won't reach that point. There will be someone else waiting ahead of you. This is not a company for the long term, definitely short term. There is no advancement after level 2. You get to level 2 pretty quickly, so don't get too excited. The "old guard" would does not like challengers, so you'll stay at level 2 for a long time. The pay is not competitive, most people that leave this company get a major boost to their income.

    Advice to Management

    This company has great potential. Instead of keeping middle management, upper management, and a bunch of other unnecessary management roles, consolidate! Too many cooks in the pot, and no one wants to take responsibility. In this company, change would definitely be for the better, and really don't keep someone in a management role who thinks bullying his way through meetings is normal, it's not. Also, someone needs to have a better understanding of who's doing what, and who's associated with who, keep some checks and balances.

    I have been working at Wockhardt (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a cafeteria with free coffee, tea, and an acceptable number of microwaves and refrigerators. Newer lab for Analytical Development. Company seems to be growing and expanding pipeline and marketed products, and is working to rectify current FDA observations. Benefits upon hire seem to be good. Workload in my lab is at a tolerable level, though some resources are limited, making it difficult to finish things in a timely manner when several projects need the same equipment. There is a good amount of overtime available for non-exempt employees. I've seen several internal job postings lately, so we are hiring permanent employees.

    Cons

    The pay is at a very low end of the range for the geographical area and for the industry in general. There is a frequent rush to get things done with little to no warning of when current projects will be handed to the next team in the line of product development and production. R&D works on formulations, which are handed to Analytical Development, whose test method is eventually handed to Quality Control when the product is approved for marketing. There is very limited communication between these groups as to what the workload expectations are for the week. I find myself feeling lucky if I know by noon what samples I will be getting for the day. Generally, all low level employees (lab personnel, production workers) seem to feel overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key in a functioning workplace, especially in manufacturing of any kind. Let low-level employees in on meetings that exist, so that the people on the bottom are aware of what we are doing and why we are doing it. The individuals doing the grunt work have a lot of experience and have ideas to streamline processes or fix problems you aren't even aware of. Be inclusive, listen, and ask for contributions.

    Appreciate what your employees do for you. We are trying our best, but giving us constant negative feedback for things out of our control is very disheartening.
