Once they're more established, this company is going grow and will not stop!
Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee) – Fenton, MO – December 5, 2017
People are awesome, but some drama within as always due to insecurities and competition... Management is awesome, but a few are lacking leadership and knowing what has to be accomplished. Communication is a 5 out of 10, but I would say it needs to improve dramatically! Training has definitely improved, and is still progressing. Mfg. has new, but awesome management! He is most definitely a wonderful and knowledgeable leader! The Mfg. Team are awesome, down to earth people, but there are a couple "negative nancies". I loved working there, more personal reasons made up my decision to leave the Alkem Family! If I could, I would still be a part of my Alkem Family ❤️
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) – Fenton, MO – June 5, 2018
Indian based culture with little regard for women. Management discourages escalation of quality issues. Company does not value your opinion if it differs from theirs. Lack of regard for quality. Pay is fair, but benefits are lacking.
The DM is ok and the rest at the higher management the thing is they lack of urgency in terms of the needs of my doctors.
Medical Representative (Current Employee) – National Capital Region – November 6, 2017
I can say that Alkem is such a great company. The boss is not strict actually she is helping us to seek for some additional sales. And I learned a lot in this company. The staffs taught me on how to get the doctor and convert him or her to be a prescriber and the most important thing I learned to be patient. My co-workers are hospitable and they are guiding me since I am the youngest among the team. But my problem is the management has no sense of urgency and support. I am enjoying working at Alkem but maybe I need a company that is well organized and supports the needs of their employees.

This is a growing company, but the head of operations and the head of the quality department (they run the site) are some of the worst managers. They are rude and condescending, and I have heard both of them making fun of employees. They make bad decisions and they act like "experts" in areas where they have no experience at all. These .two are dangerous.
We had a company bbq last week and neither of them walked around and talked to the employees. The head of operations sat away from everyone else with back turned to the employees. Rude and arrogant. Ruined the entire event.
Very old school and have no idea what it takes to motivate and retain millennials. Not progressive at all. They will drive all good employees away.
QA Analyst (Former Employee) – Fenton, MO – August 18, 2017
Leadership starts from the top and this company is lacking in any meaningful leadership. The director level of management is rude, condescending, and arrogant. Multiple employees have complained about this behavior to deaf ears.
Indian owned company that does not value their employees.
Alkem Labs in Fenton, MO had a complete management change in December 2015. A new Site Head was put in place in January 2017, and a new Director of Quality was hired in the fall of 2016. The benefits packages at Alkem have also significantly improved. As Alkem continues to grow from a company of 20 something into a company of 100+ employees, the benefits packages and additional company services will continue to expand as well.

Very bad management. There is no appreciation even if you work 12-14 hours in a day. Lots of conspiracy within the top management

Great small company with great benefits
Order Processing Specialist (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – April 5, 2016
Although I worked at Alkemist Labs for a little under a year, I enjoyed my time there. The CEO, CSO, and most of the other people employed there were very nice and pleasant to talk to. Since it is a small company, you can feel the bond and relationship one has with another. The employer really cared for their employees and showed their appreciation by offering great benefits, flexibility with family, and fun events (not to mention great vacation and PTO). They are also providing management with training and other courses to benefit their employees. Although it is a small family owned company, they are really making a mark on the industry! I would have definitely stayed there if a recruiter did not present me with an offer that broaden my skills and opportunities.
The Order Processing Specialist job was not much of a challenge and can get boring because of the daily repetition of tasks but I left before I started my Development Plan. I'm sure if I stayed past a year new responsibilities would have been given to me based on the development plan.
Great benefits and friendly people
Small company so I was worry about my growth opportunities
The above comment does not have anything to do with Alkem Labs in Fenton, MO. Alkem Labs does not have facilities in Costa Mesa, CA.

Supportive management team, kind-hearted and work-oriented
Medical Representative (Current Employee) – North Metro Manila – January 20, 2015
I usually starts at 9 in the morning and ends at 7 in the evening. My area is within North Metro Manila. I visit doctors in my list and promote to them our carried quality products. I also ask them if they want to order and purchase our products. I learned how to deal with different kind of people and not to be shy. The management is very supportive and wants to meet our goals. My co-workers are helpful. For me, meeting the monthly quota may be hardest part right now. Most enjoyable is dealing with the doctors and clients, and of course, the activities that we are doing.
free meals and transpo, activities with the clients
