For the past 4 years working with Viva, I've been given with opportunities to grow within the organization. I began as a sales assistant/coordinator when I first started and am now helping to supervise the whole sales team.
What truly makes Viva a great company to work in as it's a fun and collaborative workplace yet some individuals may find it challenging as it my role requires me to interface across many different parts of the organization each day, while I see this as for improving my skills on coordination, organization, and multitasking. A fantastic sales department with a lot of great personalities and wonderfully driven sales reps whose motivation can be inspirational.

I feel extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity by Viva to turn this into a career.
Pros
The company is filled with amazing talents, and people whom are passionate about work The office vibe (especially in sales) is fun, open, inclusive and relaxed at times
Cons
Fast paced environment which requires you to be flexible and adaptive. If you like fast paced nature, I'd definitely see this as a pro.

As a fresh graduate I think you’ll be able to learn quite a lot from this company. Regardless of the pay, it is worth the new experience to improve your resume. Every company has its pros and cons, so there really isn’t any faults to blame here. Since it’s more Chinese cultured, some people may not be used to that kind of environment. Looking at it on the positive side, it’s a place you can still gain knowledge from.

While working at Viva Pharmaceutical I had a positive experience, learning the process of working on a production line and ensuring a quality product is something I will carry with me for the rest of my career. The company provide the SOPs for the training purpose.

Viva Pharmaceutical allowed me to understand a side of employment hunting that I had not experienced in the past. The company provides a lot of opportunities for fresh graduates and all employees, it is a great place for you to grow and develop. A typical day at work would include: Job Posting, Interview and Screen candidates to see if they meet the requirements of the job, and also hiring the candidates. I learned how to ask the right questions and how to hire the right candidate. The workplace is definitely enjoyable and my colleagues were extremely helpful to me.

When I did the background check on the company before accepting the offer, I thought everyone was exaggerating, but I was wrong. First of all, if you do not speak Mandarin, do not apply. Despite the fact this is Canada, 80% of the employee do not have functional English, including senior management and the owner. Practice is shady, ingredients are not declared properly and production were done in unlicensed area. The owner still run the plant like it was Taiwan in the 60's, a totalitarian with little regards of employees morale or safety. It is sad to see business like this can strive in Canada this day in age.

This company is terrible in every way. If you can avoid it, stay away.
You will be asked to break the law daily and you can be fired on a whim. All the managers are part of the family and they treat everyone else like dirt.
Pros
Nice Cooworkers

All employees are well educated and as such are consummate professionals. Work is fast paced but salary and benefits are good.
There is always interesting work to do and clients to deal with.

However Viva Management does not value employees at all and therefore there is an extremely high turnover rate!
