Salary is OK
Stressful place

Too many rules

Workers only complain

Never enough people to run the lines.

Line leaders won't listen

People on the floor don't listen to supervisor.

New management is too demanding

Working in compounding department as compounder
Is nightmare in this company, never treat as employees

And floor will be managing by person who doesn’t know how to treat with people. Worst place to work
Cons
Overtimes only for backup team lead and team leads.

Company is run by a bunch of cheap, pretentious has-beens that need to roll over and make room for a faster, more competent generation; half of those that are reading this don't even know what pretentious means.

Ongoing projects are run by inexperienced management, carried on the backs of hardworking, underpaid, overworked people.


Companies like this are exactly why pharma is dying.

This place is mismanaged from the top down. Most managers are not familiar with the department they manage. It almost seems HR runs the show. Do what I say attitude. narrow minded. No opportunity for advancement unless your a relative of someone in a higher position. Complete disregard for safety. Not allowed to have opinion. The place runs like a sweat shop. everyone unhappy. they had a internal survey, Canada finished last in employee satisfaction. Nothing was changed. Violations in GMP are numerous. Only a matter of time before regulators catch on. Use caution if employed here. Be prepared to loose your self dignity. Try to look for a new position elsewhere as soon as you start here.
They need to reorganize HR. They need to get ride of its director. Would be a good start. GOOD LUCK! you will need it.

Wow, management needs to be investigated,
very odd, most employees are extremely unhappy.


Very messy work environment and surprisingly ignorant and insecure management team.

Don't know how the company isn't losing money. Wow.

Worst place to work for! I don't recommend to enemy!

Few words to describe this department: bullying, dictatorship, stressful environment , disrespectful and unprofessional treatment, lack of training, (sick, ignorant and unknowledgeable) management, retaliation if you speak up for basic rights, layoff for illogical reasons even if you are hard working person, favoritism, Unreasonable time for heavy workload, Negative feedback and performance even if you are one of the best chemist in the department.


It used to be good place to work for. However, after new management came, it turned to worst place to work for.


Honestly without exaggeration, if you want to get heart attack, get sick and stressful, lose hair and have grey hair, join this department


One thing I would like to know "who supports such management!?!!! "
Pros
Salary and benefits compared to other companies, free coffee/tea
Cons
Analyrical R&D management, work culture and environment

Typical day at work:
- hectic at times,

What I have learned:

- something new every day (new skills, human skills, new

techniques, managing people, etc.).

Management:

- typical (the bad and the good, so to speak)

- management are usually considerate.

- no (extreme) pressure came from my boss.

- friendly (could sometimes "loose" their human skills.

Hardest part of the job:

- dealing with people (i.e. many different characters and

the "monday morning blues".

Most enjoyable part of the job:

- being left alone to do my job (i.e. my boss did not watch over my

shoulders because he trusted me).

- getting challenging assignments.
Pros
generally friendly environment, social gatherings.
Cons
self interests supervisors
