Company Background/Culture 


Amneal Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: AMRX) is an integrated specialty pharmaceutical company powered by a robust U.S. generics business and a growing branded business. The company has a noble and important mission: We make healthy possible. 


Amneal is one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. and makes healthy possible through its diverse product portfolio that includes more than 200 generic product families, 5 marketed specialty products, and a portfolio of biosimilars, one of which has been filed with the FDA, one near-term filing opportunity and one in late-stage development.


Additionally, Amneal has impressive R&D capabilities that have resulted in one of the industry’s largest generics pipelines with 258 products filed or in development, one investigational drug to augment the Specialty business, and three biosimilars in various stages of development.  Amneal’s product range spans injectables and steriles, topicals and transdermals, solid and liquid dosage forms and inhalation delivery systems.


Following its May 2018 combination with Impax Laboratories, Amneal is uniting its 6,500 employees worldwide - who are based across the US, India, and European locations – around its Learn, Lead, Succeed culture. This dynamic entrepreneurial culture encourages all employees to contribute, to work together and to balance strategic thinking/risk taking with the need to achieve results.


As integration work continues, the company is centralizing much of its leadership and key functions in the Bridgewater, NJ area, including most of the R&D function. This has resulted in the need to hire several key roles to ensure the continued growth of the business and bring the function together, thereby enabling operational efficiency, close collaboration within the team, and the sharing of ideas and values.  


From a Specialty Pharma perspective, Amneal has two large Ph III studies underway for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and one Ph IV study for pediatric usage of Zomig.  However, Amneal is aggressively continuing to pursue growth through its business development initiatives, and it is anticipated the Clinical Product Pipeline will be greatly expanded in the near future.
