Lofty goals - Poor senior management
Sales Representative (Former Employee), CanadaMarch 19, 2016
Pros: salary, company car, benefits
Cons: poor leadership at all levels
Typical pharma company who believes they are better than all the rest in their competitive therapeutic arena despite bringing nothing of differentiating value compared to the competitors. Senior management has limited knowledge of the market atmosphere and possesses poor relationships with KOLs. People managers lack ability to stray from corporate direction and are simply the mouthpiece for corporate decisions. Marketing department is exceptionally slow to bring new ideas and marketing materials to the forefront and are generally reacting to market changes rather than having any proactive foresight.

Very environmentally responsible company
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Dorval, QuebecApril 29, 2015
Pros: Great coworkers
Cons: No job security - frequent lay offs
You never knew what your day was going to be when you walked in the door every morning. The hardest part of the job was that you never knew if you would have a job next month due to frequent lay offs. So everyone would try to take on more and more responsibility to try to avoid the next round of lay offs. It affected the morale of the company. Great co-workers and great team atmosphere.

Good Pay to compensate for
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Charlottetown, PEJune 30, 2014
Pros: excellent pay and benefits
Cons: long hours, no training, little support.
- Typical work week was 60+ hours with no paid overtime.
- Training for new staff non-existent, often directed to "find the written process online"
- Staff is unwelcoming to new employees.
- All staff events centered on alcohol related activities.
- Unrealistic expectations from Management - ie called in when sick, or on vacation because of short staffing and no cross training.
- Overall atmosphere of unease and anxiety caused by poor management of people and resources.
- HR and Management (with the exception of HSE team) dismissive about staff concerns when they were identified. (ie - staff were placed on probation or dismissed if they raised concerns about work/life balance or questionable processes)

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.
