    Rewarding career at Apotex Inc

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat career opportunities. Very supportive management. I have great respect for Barry Sherman. I think he treats his employees very well.

    ConsWay behind the times when it comes to technology. As a manager I gave to process most employee paper work via an actual piece of paper. Not all of my employees have a corporate email account. I feel that when it comes to technologies we don't have the tools to do our job in an efficient manner

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great vision, terrible management!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe Company has a great CEO with extraordinary vision and tenacity.

    ConsMajority of the directors hired in the last 2-3 years are extremely crass and dishonest creating a very unpleasant and ineffective work environment. It is quite sad to see such a fabulous business be managed by such incompetent people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave the courage to make decisions and when you do, stand behind those decisions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Apotex

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood training requirements and documentation practices. The company invests heavily on ensuring that all employees have a training matrix that outlines the training they must complete prior to starting their job. Great benefits and flexible work hours.

    ConsInsufficent auditing of their practices and investment into equipment. Also, although a lot of training is involved in becoming a part of this organization, the employees are not provided with sufficient time to attend training. Training courses are packed with information; courses that should be a day long are shorted to half-day sessions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease release time for employees to attend training.

Like everywhere else, if you demonstrate drive and willingness to make a difference, Apotex is the ideal environment for your carreer.
