Too much work
Too much work for the amount of employees. We are over worked and extremely understaffed. Not enough PA2s or team leads on some shifts. Other shifts are running with only 1 supervisor instead of 2. Consistently expecting to push ourselves over the top and then get reprimanded, or written up if a mistake happens. Too many chiefs not enough indians. And managment has poor communication. Otherwise, a good place to work

Terrible Company
The pay is poor, the benefits are expensive, and the work/life balance is non-existent. Upper management has no clue how to operate a company and is made up of mostly inexperienced and unqualified people who have little to no prior experience in the drug industry. Decisions are made in a vacuum and planning is a foreign word. The company motto SHOULD be "It's only clinical..."

Job Culture
Job advancements weren't fairly distributed where the new employees got the first pick.
managers and supervisors don't promote you because you are doing a great job. I worked 8 years at this place and started with the temporary work for 6 months, I got hired on after that as a PA1. I got promoted to a PA2 after 4 years. I tried to apply to many different positions after I graduated with bachelor'degree in business management and was not chosen. Instead, other new employees were chosen and they faild. My supervisor said that I was not promoted because I'm good at what I do as a PA2. I quit after that 8 years.
Pros
You make good friends and you get paid time off after one year
Cons
You have to kiss a** to get the promotion you want.

Good stepping stone company
Good company if you are right out of college to get experience...then move on to something much better. Dont plan on a career there. Management only cares about the bottom line.

Awful place to work......
Do not go to HR, they are against you! Too many work Bullies that just get a slap on hand. Management are not organized, and don't know what their doing. Benefits suck for being a large company, and put the blame on you for their faults. Hostile work place, and professionalism does not apply here. A lot of he said she said.

Culture is not warm and friendly
Don’t work here!! It has been my worst experience, it’s like being in the Twilight Zone everyday. People are their own island and there isn’t a sense of community.

Boring and uninclusive and dont expect to be trained
You will never receive any training any questions you ask will be considered intrusive or even as aggressive so if you plan to stay just act stupid and never say anything except yes ok and great or you will be terminated

A welcoming work environment that likes for its employees to grow within the company and be well versed in all parts of the business.
Catalent likes to keep its people within the company and grow them to know all aspects of the business. Some departments understaffed. (Finance especially).

Productive
When I worked there I felt like my job was important. They were very organized, care about your work and respected you. They gave you tasks and gave you a chance to learn new things at every turn.

Job Culture
Stay for your colleagues, leave due to management
For face value, Catalent is a great place to work. The culture between you and your colleagues is generally respectful and encouraging. With enough foresight and effort, promotion is guaranteed. The company is ever expanding its' Bloomington site and will need qualified employees to lead the projects in the right direction.

Some downsides:


This company does not value longtime employees. They'll nickel and dime you and promise you'll get a raise in the next coming months. They'll let quality employees walk away over a raise and brand their replacements as "process improvement" to justify the 2-6 people it takes to do the same job.


Overall, management is quite wet behind the ears. They make cultural and organizational changes under the assumption it's innovative and beneficial, with no real understanding or care of what their employees need.


It's the classic case of a young company trying to find their footing. If you can filter through the bs, and watch your coworkers move on to companies who'll actually value their expertise while you're left to pick up the slack, than hop on board this burning train.

family atmosphere
Although we are a large company the individual sites do feel like a family atmosphere. A focus on patients and helping to save lives gives you all you need to work and grown in such a fast pace environment.
Pros
feeling of achievement working for a company that makes life saving drugs.
Cons
takes time to acclimate and meet everyone.

Baltimore Site (formerly Paragon Bioservices) hindered by poor management
Poor management, full of politics and inept decision making. Clients run the place and they make too many false promises to the client which lead to unrealistic expectations. Work life balance is horrible they expect you to be available 24/7. Benefits are subpar.
