Excellent Career Opportunity
Good place to learn and build your career, no opportunities for growth. Amazing people, like most companies there are good and bad days, it’s all about how you handle it. Overall good experience.

Collaborative and very welcoming enviroment
The day begins with hand washing and proper gowning before entering the compounding area. Different grades of the aseptic area with the more sterile areas/grades requiring additional gowning. Team work and collaborative attitude towards discharge of daily work. Staff are very receptive and friendly, a truly warm environment to work.

You will loose confidence within 1 month.
Horrible upper management
No vision

One person wants to be centre of attraction for the entire department.

Department head has no humility.

Suggestions will be modified in a way that suits them.

Great place
Working at FKC was alright. Tight knit type of culture and all but... Management prefer seeking outside of organization for talent. Advancement is minimal and rarely promoted. Very innovative company... Always looking for the next project. Wish they cultivated more the younger generation. Lots of near retirement people, and change ain't easy with them. Too much directors and managers unnecessary roles.

Thumbs down
Fake promotions. Same people new titles, again. On repeat. Regular employees are nice. Office is nice looking but with extreme open concept no walls and the feeling of always being watched. Pay is ok but benefits and vacation not so great. Tight scheduling no daily flexibility old fashioned 9-5. Lots of negativity makes for exhausting days. Lean staffing. Good cause overall. Lots of new people.
Cons
Leadership is not experienced not hired from the outside worked their way up.

Growth
A great place to learn in order to advance within your career. May be difficult to be promoted within the organization. They do try to build a positive work culture.

Micromanaged, treated poorly, not worth it,
Fresenius Kabi Canada is one of the worst employers in Mississauga's pharma industry:

Cons:

- Office in the middle of nowhere

- Awful processes. Completely disconnected from other divisions

- Probation period is 6 months? What?!? Not competitive with industry.

- Pay is far below average for pharma

- Leadership is homegrown from the APP-CPP days. Lacking credible pros.

- Constant micromanagement from a Manager with no clue



Pros

- Nice office

- Free coffee


Only work here if you don't have any better options.

Micromanagement and strict schedule
No scheduling flexibility to provide work and life balance. Micromanaged leaders. Good coworkers that's the best part but poor leadership overall can't trust. Same people always recognized. Management emails after hours and during time off. Culture is not great overall, employee club and management club. Pay is ok but vacation time is low. Beautiful office.

Good place in general
Positive experience with management. Most employees in HR and managerial positions do attempt to help others. Really wished they had a more central location.

Negative workplace and not fair treatment favortism
Staff is not happy it’s 8 hours of negative feelings. Very stressed workplace and people can feel it. Lots of new people every week lots of people leaving the good staff leaves it’s too bad. The same people always receive the promotion and pay raises. The directors get treated better then the staff and we work harder and make everything happen day to day. Management is never wrong but they are. They call you on your days off if they have questions about work. No balance in schedules. My coworkers are a good team. Need to change some directors they have favorites and not always professional compared to othe companies. But the staff sticks together we understand each other. I like my coworkers.
Pros
Good friends at the office
Cons
Everyone not treated the same and higher up gets better treatment

Would not recommend this company to friends
I’ve spent most of my career working in the pharmaceutical industry. This place is a mess and doesn’t compare to the real deal. The senior leaders are all home grown and not experienced. Work life balance is non existent. Work from home was introduced but is highly controlled and limited. No flexibility to create own self scheduling, must be committed to the clock. Highly micro managed work environment. No trust in the employees. Vacation entitlement is not attractive, long wait for an additional week. Benefits are basic. The pay was ok. Met some nice people that were supportive and helpful but overall people weren’t happy to be there everyday. I hope things get better for them.
Pros
They always order food for meetings. The new building is beautiful.
Cons
No work life balance. Negative work environment.
