Great workplace with excellent environment
Nucleic Acid Vaccine Production: OJT (Former Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 13 June 2013
My time at Novartis Aqua Health was in an On-the-job training position which was required by my college program.
A typical day at work at this company involved bacterial fermentation, downstream processing, and chromatographic purification to obtain a final product which would be put on the market after successful QC testing.
I learned the ins and outs of a typical GMP/ISO 9001 environment, and how a manufacturing facility conducts itself internally.
Management was very friendly and knowledgeable, and was very flexible in terms of accommodating everyone's needs.
My co-workers were generally happy with their positions, and were very knowledgeable in their professions. Stress levels were very low as the company did everything it could to keep everyone happy.
The hardest part of the job was the adherence to manufacturing guidelines, but that became second nature as time progressed. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the process through to completion, and having a final product which was definitely the target which was being sought out.
