We employ some 5,500 people worldwide. And while they may all join us with very different skills and backgrounds, they have much in common. They’re eager to contribute – be that a fresh insight, a novel idea or a well-thought-through plan; they love pulling together as a team; and they care deeply about the patients we serve. What’s more, they’re determined to develop themselves as well as our business. Have a look at the routes the careers of just a few of them have taken.
Principal Formulations Scientist
Webster Groves, MO
I love the team atmosphere here. We all pull together to get the job done correctly. And my colleagues work so hard I’m determined not to let them down. Involvement in product development from conception through to launch is another reason I joined. Summarizing around four years of product development for a New Drug Application (NDA) is hard work. But nothing beats the buzz of seeing it finally submitted for approval.
I’m looking forward to our pharmaceutical products getting much more attention than when we were part of a larger organization. That makes what we each contribute even more important. It’s great to know my performance directly influences the future of our company. You don’t feel that so much in a large company, so I find that very exciting.
Although I now manage a team of formulation and analytical scientists on NDA projects, I still have a significant technical role. However, I have other responsibilities, too, such as making sure my projects are properly resourced and working with my direct reports on their career development.
I began my career in formulation development. I started out working on Abbreviated New Drug Application projects and then moved on to NDA projects. As one of the primary technical contributors, I decided on the experiments needed for product development. That taught me how to think through a problem and work out all the possible options and outcomes.
