Tech Team Member - Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 April 2014
On an average day, I would go into work and did the work that I was assigned to that day. From this job, I learned how to work computer programs such as SAP. The management system at this job was very open, and had a transparent policy, which led to employees feeling a lot more informed about the company, as well as more important. Co-workers were very friendly and accepting. The hardest part of the job was when sometimes the production lines would not run. This meant long shifts of inactivity. the most enjoyable part of this job was the environment. The lengths that GlaxoSmithKline went to ensure employee satisfaction were commendable.
Production Compliance (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 March 2018
It really depends on which department you work in. In production, the environment is much worse than the commercial side. The workload is also not fairly distributed, some departments have to work overtime almost everyday, while some other departments work very slowly and leave on time everyday. The gym is very good and they offer good classes for free; however, again, if you work in the departments that are very strict, you might not be allowed to go to gym during office hour. The management says they don't encourage people working overtime, but they like it if you do. It's because they try not to hire people; sometimes some employees retired or resigned, but are never replaced, so the team has to work much harder to make up for the missing team member. The hardest task to get done is to get signatures from the managers, they will hold onto your documents for months unless you have good relationship with them. On the positive side, they do pay well and give good benefits & perks. They have bbq party for summer and christmas party, and they are pretty generous with the food.
