Great place to work and learn
Intern, Corporate Strategy (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC26 November 2017
It is a company with a long history of operating in Canada and now poised to explore opportunities elsewhere in the world. So that made it an exciting place to work in. The learning curve was steep but there was plenty of guidance from senior officials who have been with the company for a very long time. It's a great place to work for at any designation/level.

Company with no direction
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC16 September 2017
Pharmascience was once a great company to work for. However, over the last 3 years this company has had big obstacles to over come in which they failed. The new management that was brought in did a great job in leading the company and employees to failure. Upper level management has no respect for their employees and there is an enormous lack of communication problem. There is a lack of leadership with no directives. Not many tools for employees to develop their careers and encourage moving up within the company.
Pros
Great employees, nice facility, finally got rid of the GM!
Cons
Major lack of leadership, lack of parking spaces, favouritism

Change Control Leader, External Supply (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 April 2017
Challenging jobs where you can learn a lot, especially if your a student or new to the pharmaceutical industry. However, you have to be careful as the work load increases very fast and you can get easily overworked.

Management still needs to be better structured and streamlined
A lot of micro-management and high turnover.
Talent is also poorly managed.
Pros
Early Fridays, Great co-workers, Flexible Hours
Cons
Too many silos amongst departments

Micro-Management
A/R + Deductions (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC13 February 2017
Co-workers were great but are they are unhappy but stay bc many yrs of service. They warned me about the micro management...wow is it bad :( Worst I ever experienced. Horrible management in A/R. High turn over. Extremely hierarchical but that is expected with incompetency and lack of managerial skills in that specific dept (insecurities). So much talent in A/R but it is thwarted by poor management and misguided priorities of manager.
Salary is below market trends. Location is terrible so traffic is disastrous. Located in an area that was recently deemed to be in the top 10 worst traffic areas in Canada.... Yup...you read correctly. Google it.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
Micro management. Micro management. Micro management....did I mention the micro management

Manque de direction
Operations (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 July 2016
Les employés veulent faire avancer les dossiers et amener des améliorations aux procédés, mais la politique et la bureaucratie sont très présents, ce qui ralentit les changements et nous oblige parfois à prendre des directions qui se contredisent.
Le manque de transparence et de direction des équipes de management laissent aussi les employés perplexes quand à leur avenir.
Pros
Horaire de travail flexible
Cons
Manque de direction du management
