Very Cut throat
Pharmaceutical Technician (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOSeptember 11, 2018
Workplace culture is depressing, do as I say and Not as I do Management, training is poor. I would not refer anyone. If you are in a packaging or production position this is not the company you want to work for.
Pros
None
Cons
Cut throat, Poor Compensation, Horrible Benefits

Good place to work overall
Quality Assurance Associate (Current Employee) –  Winchester, KYSeptember 11, 2018
Overall, this is a good place to work. The company focuses on ergonomics and always improving the process to increase production and to alter techniques according to the workers that do the tasks daily, if possible. This job isn't too stressful and there is a good home-work balance. Most of the employees are positive and helpful.
Healthcare and male favoritism are some cons. Also hard to get promoted from within the company unless you are in the right group.
Pros
Morale of workers
Cons
Healthcare

Terrible management
senior manufacturing associate (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, INSeptember 10, 2018
Management in Small Scale Form Fill Finish is awful. They never have any clue what's going on, they pound us with work that we sometimes barely get done in a regular work day; most times second shift has to take over. They won't hire anyone in our department so we're short staffed. It shouldn't be a stressful job but the work environment is not good. Catalent apparently has a thing for getting as much work done with as few people as possible, and working them to death.
Pros
a payceck, Pto, holidays off
Cons
short breaks if you even get one, management, stress

Clinical Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PASeptember 4, 2018
I think catalent is a nice company. They require a lot of hours and time,the work place can be stressful at times due to the turn over rate. Its always work to do there I don't believe they can compensate their employees better.
Pros
overtime

Not a fun place to work.
Production Associate (Current Employee) –  Woodstock, IL 60098August 26, 2018
12 hour shifts. Not much family life. People I work with are great. Management changes rules daily. No organization within management. Only two 30 minutes breaks for a 12 hour shift.

Toxic Work Environment
Quality Assurance Representative (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INAugust 8, 2018
The competitive nature of this company creates a toxic, hostile work environment full of young professionals on a mission to sabotage and undermine their coworkers for personal career advancement, rather than doing their job and working as a team for the sake of the company and the patients. HR enables this toxic behavior and doesn't do due diligence in investigations to get all sides of issues. Their failure to see through sociopathic and manipulative behavior causes good employees to leave and bad ones to stay and continue the toxicity. Since Catalent purchased Cook Pharmica, the company has become profit driven rather than patient driven. Red tape creates an absolute nightmare when trying to implement positive continuous improvement changes or appropriate corrective actions for manufacturing or maintenance issues. This place is full of people pointing fingers at people rather than processes, and employee morale is at an all-time low. Manufacturing operators are worked to death and have very few weekends off due to operational issues and high staff turnover. Supervisors and managers are mostly non-confrontational and inefficient at solving problems within their teams. Productivity is minimal amongst staff because they're all afraid to do something wrong, so their solution is to not do anything at all. Staff is rarely praised, thanked, or given any appreciation for the work they do, but rather are constantly scrutinized and devalued as human beings. I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy.
Pros
Decent pay, good benefits
Cons
Absolutely hostile work environment

Company does good things, but can't get out of its own way.
Manager, Stability Storage (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCAugust 7, 2018
I learned a lot while working at Catalent, but the company has lost its focus on its core competency in Morrisville. In my position as the manager of the stability storage department, I turned a poor performing area into a center of excellence. The area was profitable and provided a constant work stream to the laboratory. This was done without much fanfare to the rest of the company, just solid and reliable competence. The company would not listen to its leaders when they told them of need equipment upgrades. They instead spent a half million dollars on consultants to tell them the exact same thing. The slowness to act and unwillingness to listen to its front line leaders creates a frustrated work environment.
Pros
Great People
Cons
Poor Upper Management

Focuses on customers at employees' expense.

Catalent Pharma Solutions focuses heavily on the customer and on the bottom line. Employees often feel devalued, overworked and often unheard. I would not refer a friend.
Pros

I would not recommend working for Catalent. There is a severe disconnect between the site leadership and associates in terms of open and honest communication.
