Work-Life balance.

Dislikes

I amreferring about chennai location, Hospira previously Orchid. Has been recently taken over by pfizer and integration of pfizer culture is in progress. Hence comments are entirely about Hospira-Orchid culture.No benchmark for performance,entirely depends on how well you praise your boss, keep his ego satisfied. If you are a local or from Telugu background and your boss happens o be Telugu you will climb ladder quickly.So called leaders are only for name sake. Poor knowledge about regulatory requirements by quality,outdated lab setup,software/systems,horrible decision makers holding high positions, blame culture seems induced in blood of people for hospira-Orchid,chennai location.
Every possible excuse by quality,hold lab activities as knowledge on exact requirements is poor,Compliance and quality is only show off.In background business and quality play hand in hand for hiding major non conformance.You cannot strictly speak your opinions for improvements.No job security for hard work.

Work

Everything except drug development.Validation, calibration,maintenance, investigation/incident handling, change control management,CAPAs,facing audit,Preparation,SOP harmonization,Procedure integration. Responsible for execution of almost everything.

This is one of the best companies to work with best quality products and cooperative colleagues who are always ready to respond with positive attitude. The training is excellent as every other day you are learning new skills designed by training managers. Job security is marvelous until you are following company norms. Another plus point is that salary /appraisals are excellent for the performers. Work environment is superb and you have got a different acceptance in the market as being from a prestigious organization. Work life balance can be managed easily if you manage to plan meticulously the tasks assigned..
Overall it is a great experience to work with this company..

Dislikes

Overall there is nothing to be disliked .However , after reaching some stage the growth opportunities are less and the salary/appraisal has some deadline due to the benchmarks after you reach a certain package according to the hierarchy . Further response to appreciation mails from the top management are not as per the requirement to keep the person motivated. Some classification of staying in B class and C class cities while on outstation working are needed to be reviewed .

Work

Its exciting and challenging but I like it as every day there is some new learning and one feels satisfied while imparting the knowledge and motivating the team to achieve the organization goals.

Still Few decent leaders left like Mr Ajay Suri, Mr Chimoy Ghosh, Mr Pularo
They Just contribute to 5% of total leadership

rest it has become a junkyard


Dislikes

The organization has moved from top to shambles in terms of leadership, ethics, people development, growth opportunities and Respect for people

The fault is not of The pfizer as entity but people who has let down the organization with their dictatorship. it would be worthy to mention few years back this was the perfect place to work as the leadership was fabulous and people were taken care off.

Currently states like U.P, Bihar, Andhra, kerala, DELHI, Punjab, Rajsthan, Haryana, Karnataka, madhya pradesh and Uttrakhand are suffering from gross regional leadership crisis as mostly all the employees are being are governed by pressure by their managers and are forced upon to achieve numbers by any means. The hand holding, exemplifications, helping people to learn and implement, strengthening competencies thru coaching and providing people a space to share the grass root level challenges and helping by a solution to team is awfully missing in regional leadership of above states.

I don't like this organization.

Dislikes

Company always talk about compliance,but in reality there is no compliance, management always supports business managers,they don't listen to the field workers. First line managers use abusive and slain language, gets physical with their colleagues and Most important things that when u raise the issue they say this can't happen, I have seen lots of examples like this.

Recently in every division first line and second line manager have started pressurized the field colleagues to pay 10000 to 15000 thousands and some time more than that to do the nos. Or budget, this happens in cardiovascular division, internal medicine division of PIH , Pfizer.
So I will suggest not to join this organization,better to join Indian organization.

Work

Boring, demotivating , worst appraisal policy,dat every years get change. Your personal life get impact,once u join, they will retaliate you mentally and physically both ways.

It' s local FDA plant.

Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is slow. The work pressure is very high. Sometimes, I have to work 12-14 hours straight in a day as I have to attend client calls in the evening and sometimes late into the night. Managers do not value an individuals’ unique strengths, which is why I have to take back my suggestions most of the times. I do receive appreciation emails from my client, but they mostly go unnoticed during my mid-year appraisals. Also, there is no on-job training for freshers, hence senior folks like me have to guide them step-by-step, which is a pain sometimes.
