Good company, very siloed environment
Quality Management Associate (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, On18 July 2019
Great benefits and other perks with the organization. But it is a very siloed environment. At times it can be difficult to work cross functionally. Overall very good processes in place as an organization.

Good Work, when things are actually Coordinated...
Alaris Medical Device Technician (Former Employee) –  Varies based on Hospital16 July 2018
As the work tends to be going to hospitals to work with their Med-Tech department running preventative maintenance on their devices, the work itself isn't difficult, just time consuming and somewhat repetitive.

The problems come into play due to the nature of the work; lots of managers and not so much coordination with the hospital staff.

Jobs can be skewed due to the hospital not coordinating properly enough to have a designated space large enough to house the help, or by not coordinating with the departments of the hospital to actually know where the devices are.

When it works, the work goes quick and easy. Just lots of possible ways to go wrong.

Don't even get me started on the sorts of crazy stuff that will happen in regards to getting car rentals or hotel rooms reserved on short notice. They tend to reimburse fairly well over any costs incurred at least.

You also may or may not get work just based on if they remember you exist. So it comes in waves if at all.
Pros
Decent Work, Good Coworkers if you're Lucky, Coordination makes for quicker jobs
Cons
Can be uncoordinated, may have periods of waiting between work

Emphase sur la quantité et non sur la qualité
Spécialiste en support technique (Former Employee) –  Quebec City, QC2 March 2016
Pour la quantité de travail que les employés doivent effectuer, le salaire n'est pas à la norme pour des postes similaires ailleurs.
J'ai beaucoup appris sur le service à la clientèle comme spécialiste en support technique dans le centre d'appel.
J'ai trouvé cet emploi difficile, car je suis une personne qui axe beaucoup sur la qualité et non pas sur la quantité.
Pour une entreprise qui fournit des services aux hôpitaux et autres entreprises dans le domaine des soins et santé, le management met beaucoup d'emphase sur la quantité des appels au lieu de la qualité des services données.
Pros
bons avantages sociaux
Cons
échelle salariale plus bas que la norme

Five minute commute from home, challenging work life balance, manager turnover is very high
DISTRIBUTION PROJECT LEAD (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON11 October 2012
A typical day at work: Managing emails and meetings. I also provide process and system expertise to a young staff; this includes supporting the Warehouse Manager, Director of Operation and Supervisors. Currently I am working on an SAP upgrade project - The good portion of my day is spent working with a larger cross functional team, both in Canada and the US, in setting up process and data for the distribution center to support the SAP upgrade from 4.0 to 6.0.

What have I learned; Process and systems can only perform transactional outputs, but people are key. Over my 13 years at BD, people still remain key. Much like any systems or processes, people need the same care. Maintaining strong relationships and creating new ones is essential. Respect and good old fashion hard work remain essential.

Management; I have worked closely with 5 managers in the past 4 years while having 9 different managers in my 13 year stay. The managerial style had been different in all accounts. Adapt or sink is my saying. I’ve been able to adapt to the constant change of style over the years.

Co-workers; Hardworking & never settling for nothing but the best. What a great team.

The hardest thing about my job; The knowledge transfer to new associates proves challenging, specifically when managers would like to see the learning curve shrink from 8 months to 1 month.

The most enjoyable part of my job; Being able to help others and teach others. When my colleagues are struggling with process or systems, I’ve been able to help. Being that person is honorable and I owe my company many thanks for granting
  more... me the opportunities to get to the level I’m at.  less
Pros
free gym, ping pong table, ever second friday - pizza lunch!
Cons
work life balance and high turnover
