Lofty goals - Poor senior management
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Canada19 March 2016
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.
Pros
salary, company car, benefits
Cons
poor leadership at all levels

Very environmentally responsible company
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dorval, Quebec29 April 2015
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.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
No job security - frequent lay offs
