Unfortunately the bad days outweighed the good days at about 10 to 1. I wouldn't say that Catalent is a bad company to work for but I couldn't recommend someone to work in my position.

Blame culture because of not well prepared section head. They don't treat people equally. Lots of people leaving company due not respectful section head. No promotions unless you are friend of section head.

Complete shambles of a company who under pay there staff and the management are completely incapable of doing there job. A company where failure and incompetence is rewarded you are better off on the dole than working for this company.

Management have their favourites so do not expect to progress unless your tongue is of the brown variety. The management are amongst the worst and most incompetent you could imagine.

Hours tend to be a 8-4 or 9-5 but overtime is always needed, poor work life balance.
Little to no training is given even although having no experience and the work is still expected to be completed at a fast pace.

Work is rushed and pushed through to get kits out the door as quick as possible with the company more interested in finance rather that 'Patient First' which they claim to be.

Unfortunately a lot of blame culture within Catalent means you don't want to speak up about certain circumstances such as quality of work. Loads of paperwork and manual work due to technology being coming behind the times.


I haven't enjoyed working with Catalent in the slightest.
Pros
Free on site car parking and free tea and coffee.
Cons
no work life balance, lack of communitation, poor managemnet, blame culture and bullying tactics from senior management down to on floor operations, heavy work load with a high stress enviroment.

Absolute disgrace company to work for, with no hope and future

Dartford Catalent site had a history of many QC Analysts jointing and leaving due to poor salaries, management and harsh working conditions.


So please please save your future and apply somewhere else

multi million pound company that pays minimal and cares nothing for its employees. Your just a number.
the new management dont care about their team, just themselves and getting the correct metrics to upper management.

the place has no soul.

lots of turnover of staff.

place is a negative environment, very little praise, lots of fault finding.

pay at the bolton site is much much less than the companys others sites around the world.
Cons
low pay, negative workplace, bad management

this was my first full time job. it was excellent to get me started on the career ladder and the staff were delightful and accepting since i was the youngest there. they taught me so much that helped me progress later in life. the hardest part was making sure everything was precise and in order but i soon got the hang of it. the wages and hours all worked well for me.
Pros

If you can lie and bullsh*t and suck up to the right manager's *rsehole then you're going to fit right in at Catalent. If you have any backbone and stand up for yourself then you get the sack. Never worked in such a two-faced environment.
Pros
good money
Cons
sh*te management at EVERY LEVEL
