Atmosphere is very foreboding
Analytical Chemist II (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 26 November 2018
When I joined Apotex 2 years ago as an analytical chemist, the job was great, pay was great, and security felt great. Apotex has hit many roadblocks in the US market so far and therefore has hired consultants to 'streamline' processes and track your tasks. Everyone knows this is corporate speak for cost-cutting (Which corporate has been pushing) and pending layoffs. As such, the atmosphere at Apotex at many sites has become very dreary and people are scared for their job security.
Day to day work has also drastically slowed down, and people are being tracked by consultants every day. This place was great for learning your basics such as instrumentation, GMP, and methodology, but I greatly fear for the future of this company.
Good place to learn the basics and get a good pay
Job security is unstable at best
