    I have been working at APCER Life Sciences full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Think twice before joining the this organisation, no growth, no development, personal life is spoilt

    Cons

    Pathetic company: very bad environment, lack of facilities, management politics, hr and managers are not professional, ideal working hour is 9hours but they push you to work for 12-15hours, they do not have tools that are required for better development, they compare the company to MNC standards but it's a lame company with no standards, the team is managed with few people who are the only once who get promoted and others are in same position since years, if you are talented in buttering and have a ability to fool the management do join at your own risk, the company will have n number of openings as no one risks to stay more than 6months to 1.6years. HR and managers need to learn people management skills as communication skills make you feel like you are slum area. They make employees be in probation period for a year and half and give reasons like quality, productivity and excess leaves just to avoid giving yearly bonus. They make employees life so miserable and force them to leave the organisation by planning and plotting with politics.

    I have been working at APCER Life Sciences full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been working in APCER since more than 9 years by now. I would say that APCER gives good growth to its employees and really takes care of the old people in terms of their career growth. There is flexibility in terms of work from home. Rapidly things are moving towards automation.

    Cons

    I do not see a retirement plan in APCER.

    I worked at APCER Life Sciences full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Apcer is one of the best possible companies to work for!! I can say this with confidence based on working for 3 years with them as a senior drug safety physician. There are many pros such as genuine people, work culture, flexi timing, interpersonal relations, opportunities to work, exposure, company organizational structure, friendly HR. I worked in Ahmedabad location, when I joined Apcer in 2017, it was a smaller place which grew substantively within a short time. New office is good location-wise, physical safety and job security are perfect, safe for women to work till 10 pm without a worry unlike other big cities in our industry. Team culture, team leads and 90-95% managers are good and employee friendly! If you get a rotten one its just unfortunate (and happens) but can happen in any company! Big plus is Apcer confidence in genuine freshers (1st job) and freshers in PVG (like I was when I joined) Job security is another huge plus point Ahmedabad work culture and team are massive advantage compared to Delhi.

    Cons

    Being boxed in same kind of work/reports Lack of lateral move opportunities Over-reliance by company on some narcissistic managers (very few)

    I worked at APCER Life Sciences full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, work from home for experienced people can be provided in case they required due to health issues or personal problems. 360 review implementation: one can grade your manager Feel like family Delhi location in itself is a measure plus point Easy to reach to the managment Good hike, salary, health insurance and sodexo card for food The company is in growing phase. From past 5 years things are developing for the good. Good place who are working here from many years and able to come in managment. They have better work life balance to some extent as compared to associates level.

    Cons

    Less work life balance (weekends are working mostly). High and unmanageable work load as per the client requirement. Internal politics (it is in every company so better to do work and maintain your own behavior rather than changing the management). Less professionalism due to high work load. Company is developing continuously. Hope soon it will be a good lifescience company to work.
