Technical Writer (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 19 June 2017
Core company values are great; paid lunch breaks, decent vacation/sick days, health benefits are a little above average and include RSP matching PLUS 1% from the company, long and short term disability plans, prescription, dental, vision. The pay is supposedly competitive, but most pharma companies pay more. Where this company really lacks, is the culture. There are no company events (not even a Christmas party), no amenities in the buildings, really not much in terms of getting employees to socialize or get engaged.

The work culture is very dreadful and often they will give impossible tasks, almost as if they were purposely making a project and giving us improper deadlines.
Apotex is really going downhill. They have the mentality of working cheaper and not checking proper guidelines, leading to many lawsuits against them in the news, such as with Servier - not to mention Apotex also made birth control pills that didn't work properly. You can find this info publicly in the news.
They've been doing massive layoffs and have been trying to hire fresh out of university graduates for people who have worked here for 5-10 yrs. As a result you see many, many mistakes being made and the quality of everything pretty much going down.
You get paid
Long hours, overtime, management out of touch, bad work culture

A fast paced environment with great deal on ongoing challenges. People work well together. My team consisting of 4 managers and over 100 supervisory and hourly staff are dynamic and fully engaged. Ongoing dealing with FDA and internal audits mean the need to be cohesive with all department

Racists, people are in groups to protect themselves. Management supports only white people. salaries and benefits are very negligible compared to any other pharmaceutical industry. work shifts make people sick but still management come up with similar work schedules.
