Nada Nehme
Country Manager, Lebanon

Working at Cipla has always been an exciting journey full of learning. I always felt encouraged to take initiatives and to think out of the box. I don't remember spending 2 identical days during my 5 years journey at Cipla - and even now, the work at Cipla continues to be as exciting as on day 1! The entrepreneurial culture within the company pushes us all to take risks and think creatively.
