Senior R&D Project Manager (Current Employee) –  German town, MD19 February 2019
I am proud to work at a place that cares so much about patient impact. They work hard in streamlining processes to make their daily output efficient and error free.
The senior leadership team has an aura of comfort and openness with their employees. They enrich and encourage a culture of diversity within work space.
Coming to work each day knowing for sure that what little I do makes a positive difference in the lives of other fellow human beings, is priceless.

Packaging Operator (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON31 January 2019
Found good place to work. Currently working as packaging department. good learning opportunity and flexible hours. Good for overtime work.
Better to join through agency payroll if someone is looking for intra department transfer. As a full time or contract employee looking to get transfer to desire department then must have to be in organization at least for one year however for agency payroll employee could even apply next day for intra department transfer
Pros
Good learning opportunity and flexible hours. Good for overtime work.
Cons
Need to spend atleast one year to get into desired dept

TALENT ACQUISITION COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Tijuana, B.C.17 January 2019
5 stars.

A Great Place to Work For All shares the essential values that every organization should follow to thrive in the future.

every monthly team meeting, we put up a slide listing all of our company values. Then, team members have a chance to give shout-outs to each other based on those values and based on each person's work in the past month. It's a great way for everyone to publicly recognize each other.

Management cheats
Sales Management (Current Employee) –  Montreal19 December 2018
The management team over inflates your sales quotas. They add a minimum of $20K to every rep as a safety blanket. So many reps don't hit target because of this. The company is run by people that have very low ethics and morals. I've seen management bully individuals that are close to retirement. They only do what's best for them, not the employee.There's a reason why they are constantly looking for sales people, everyone leaves for something better. The Canadian region once hit over 100% when only 1 manager hit plan that year and by barely 100%,. How can a region hit 102% when only 1 manager finished at below 101% and all the others were below 99%? That's due to the hefty hedge added on to every single sales reps plan across the country. What a low move to do to your employees. BTW I would have put 0 stars but you're forced to selects at least 1 for overall rating.
Pros
you must be joking?
Cons
The VP down

High-paced and rewarding environment
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON17 December 2018
The Laboratory Automation team based out of Burlington is the right place for someone who likes working in a dynamic environment where each individual has a lot of ownership for their own success.

The group has a small company feel and people are encouraged to do what's right to move the business forward. This comes with a lot of empowerment and flexibility, but can also lead to high demands, especially when things get busy.

Plenty of experienced employees that have been around for ten years plus, balanced with new employees following a recent period of rapid growth. This has led to a good mix of skills and viewpoints.

Definitely helpful for prospective employees to be excited by science, technology, robotics, etc. If you're motivated by helping scientists do great research, then this could be the ideal place for you.

I personally find the leadership strong and possessing of a good vision for continuing to grow and develop the business.
Pros
Interesting work, freedom to operate, strong leadership
Cons
Work-life balance challenges at times

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON13 November 2018
Lack of clear direction and a very weak and incompetent management team. Roles are not clearly defined any many people are checked out. You will get burned out if you try to make a difference. All the positive reviews about the Burlington,ON office are falsely manufactured.

A great deal of politics and and back stabbing. Not a healthy work environment when everyone is looking to watch their back. The old timers believe they rule and the new talent is lost

Sales (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 August 2018
Cheap company, doesn't care about their employees, they expect to keep people while paying peanuts. The turnover in the Ottawa office is unbelievable, in very department. People can't wait to leave. I've lost count the amount of times I noticed employees searching for new jobs while on the job....
