Average workplace
Lab Technician (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 April 2018
Typical work and salary. The job and work load can become tedious, too much at once, or completely slow at times; there is no consistent pace. Higher management need much improvement, whereas Middle managers tend to be better equipped at handling their respective teams.
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Over worked

The worst company I ever worked at
QC Reviewer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON29 March 2018
The culture and mentality of this place is very poor and i was astounded to see that this type of culture exists in a Canadian company. The compaby is not owned by Canadians but Arabs and therefore their mentality and work ethic is the same. Your are prefered based on the colour of your skin which i find very saddening. Highly unproffesional and demoralising.
Pros
none

Laboratory Technician/Support Services Technician (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 January 2018
sample prep for analysis, keeping documentation of drugs in house. Calibration of pipettes and other equipments. Review of SOPs. I learned a lot. How important documentation is. How important it is to be accurate but fast paced. The workplace was very enjoyable because everyone was willing to help one another. The hardest part of the job was when there were deadlines to be met, but were met because of the determination of all staff. The most enjoyable part was knowing that we all had each others back and were willing to help each other out
Pros
it felt like family
Cons
long hours at times

Medical Laboratory Assistant/Technician (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON10 November 2017
Its a good place to work for someone who doesnt have experience yet and all the employees are nice. The only disappointment is the JOB HOURS if there's no study then there's no work. NO MONEY

Your Worst Nightmare
Nurse (Current Employee) –  St.-Charles, ON1 March 2017
Management installed dozens of cameras in St Charles and threatened to fire people who they see smiling (because they "cant" be talking about work if they are smiling). We lost over 200 people in two years and we only have around 35 full time employees here. On 3 different occasions, entire departments walked out on the same day (Pharmacy, QA and Sub-Investigators). Management flies in from Toronto and literally screams at employees in front of everyone (they even scream at the Doctors). Morale is minus 1 on a scale of 1-10 and I would be astonished if they aren't shut down by the FDA or go belly up as the pharmaceutical industry knows how they operate.
Pros
Nice building, non-management workers nice.
Cons
High stress, work every weekend, tyrant management.

former medical lab assistant (Former Employee) –  Scarborough Ontario5 February 2017
Worked at a lot of places,but pharma stands out. No time to gossip ,work hard do your best and you will be appreciated. Make a mistake but be honest management will help you. Senior boss is the best , he is understanding and helpful.
Not a place to loiter around, waste time or make excuses. Learned a lot and feel bad for leaving it. Would go back in a heart beat but had to move to another city.
Pros
lots to learn and improve your skills
Cons
lot of work!

Clinical Research Study Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 December 2016
It was enjoyable working there except the narrowness of the manager. The manager used to motivate the other coworkers in such a way that they were scared to help new comers. Also there was racism from lower level upto management.
Pros
free and spacious parking
Cons
weekend work

The company is an overall friendly environment, however, they lacked room for growth. After being employed for 7 years with the company I was treated with seniority, but not paid with it.

Not a good place to work
Medical Laboratory Technician/Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 July 2016
Overall it was bitter experience working with this company finally they did not care even when I was under treatment for one of the cardiac ailment and eventually I have to quit with out getting the service benefits of (9 years).
management gets busy in dogfight for promotions and other gains without caring much about company and about the work ethics mistreats and abuse subordinate staff for personal reasons and gains.
overall no show of humanity and compassion in this company and it is in a country where we are so compassionate, diverse and care for humanity.
Cons
Management discriminative

Fun people, terrible management
Lab technician (Former Employee) –  Mississauga20 July 2015
It's a great place to start your career but that's it. No one is appreciated and favorites are picked to do the bulk of the work. Excellent way to gain experience and learn if someone is willing to teach, although this is rarely the case. Terrible, if any, training program. Management is nice unless something goes wrong and then everyone turns on each other and points fingers so they don't get in trouble. Management is ridiculously unorganized and demands respect instead of trying to earn it. The pay is garbage and the work they get will eventually reflect what they pay because no one can live off the wage they offer. Sadly, people will continue to work here because the job market it awful and experience is needed, but until they begin appreciating their workers no one will enjoy working here or want to bend over backwards for them. There is job security but no room for advancement. I worked here for over 4 years and never got a raise.
Pros
Great group of co-workers, Good place to get experience
Cons
Poor management skills, Unorganized, no promotions/raises
