Waaay too much politics
Labeling Regulatory Associate Manager (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 3, 2013
Much too much politics, causes a toxic and non-productive environment. They're small and they could be great with the right people, but I don't see it happening.

Regulatory Affairs Manager (Current Employee), Mississauga, OntarioAugust 5, 2013
Pros: excellent local and international teams to work with.
Cons: long hours of commuting to work daily
A typical work day is full of fun with early morning teleconferences with colleagues in Europe (6 hrs behind Europe). This is followed by departmental, projects and products meetings. As part of the management team, strategic planning sessions would commence after the meetings. Regulatory Agencies' meetings to discuss ongoing submissions would follow.

A company that offered good potential for growth and development
Planning Manager, Ciba Geigy (Former Employee), Caracas, VenezuelaAugust 6, 2012
Pros: learned a lot about the agro-chemicals that we produced
Cons: it was hard to sustain a friendly working relationship with the marketing and sales personnel.
The job consisted on reviewing the results of many computer reports on production, sales, forecasting and expenses.
I learned that I did not enjoy planning and servicing the marketing and sales departments. I wanted to be in their positions.
My co-workers were not enjoyable to work with most of the time.
The hardest part of the job was keeping a friendly – more... working relationship with the marketing and sales staff.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning about the different products that we were importing and producing. – less

Associate Director (Current Employee), East Hanover, NJMarch 31, 2014
Pros: several company holidays
Cons: not all opportunities (i.e.telecommuting on occassion), are for associates outside of "pharma" division. yes, there is "corporate separateness"
For the most part, it's a decent company with good medical benefits. However, you find that associates in the Corporate division do not have the work flexibility allowed to other associates. (Flex-time, telecommuting, etc...)

Excellent comp and benefits, positives end there.
Field Based Employee (Former Employee), East Hanover, NJMarch 28, 2014
Pros: field teams
Cons: inept management, management by fear and "box checking"
Over the last few years the culture has spiraled into a very toxic, negative one. Senior management down to field based managers have shifted to micro-management and box checking. Innovation and collaboration are no longer supported. Frequent, consistent lay-offs have many on edge at all times. On the positive side, In my experience the field level – more... sales teams are excellent and knowledgeable. – less
