Get your experience then get out.
Planner (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON31 July 2017
OK to get experience but don't plan on being there too long. Last in first out unless you make some powerful friends that can protect you. Like any place it depends on which department you work in some are better than others.
Pros
Fairly good pay, good bonus
Cons
Hard work often just gets you more work.

SAP Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 July 2017
Great company to work in. The culture is has improved over the years to be more development centric and quality driven. The workplace promotes a family culture. As apotex is a privately owned company. decent work hours depending on the department and decent salary and benefits. Job stability is its strongest suit and it believes in the potential capabilities of every individual.

Good Benefits, Boring Culture
Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON19 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.
Pros
Good benefits, paid lunch breaks
Cons
No social events

Scammy Company
Production Engineer (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON4 June 2017
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.
Pros
You get paid
Cons
Long hours, overtime, management out of touch, bad work culture

Labourer (Current Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON19 May 2017
Do not work for this company. Everything they do is a lie, They hide things from governing bodies. Management is clueless. I don't trust anything we make, and would never use it.

Nothing bad to say, but nothing great either
Project Leader, Production (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 May 2017
Company culture/leadership/management do not provide a healthy working environment focusing on success and improvement/development.

Generally, employees feel overworked and underappreciated.

Good work is not acknowledged, and bad work is not effectively addressed, breeding a culture of complacency.
