    I worked at Pharmascience full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, team spirit, flexible work hours, good school for junior candidates, good benefits, 35 hrs work week, summer hours, gym on site. For me it was a very good place to learn at the beginning of my career, I've been given responsibilities very quickly and encouraged to take initiatives.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than market average..15% below in my case. Upper management sometimes lacks vision & transparency. Not very stable environment: in recent years they did many reorganizations and many managers/directors have left the company (resigned). I had good managers there but the vision is not always clear and it seems the priorities are constantly shifting..Poor work-life balance in some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate clearly and be more transparent with your employees. Be more focused on how to help your employees to grow within the organization.

    Pros

    Good place to build experience. The sky is the limit in your career development if you are kissing the right people. Serious efforts are made to change corporative culture.Good gym and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Gossip, silos, salary, workload, not walking the talk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to listen more often to the regular employee to eliminate the mid management tampon.

    Pros

    People are super nice and there is willingness to collaborate from most people
    Since the company is growing there is a lot of room for improvement and interesting projects
    Flexible hours, people are allowed to work from home when needed

    Cons

    If you don't speak any French you're going to have a hard time, because all meetings are in French
    Not that much communication between departments
    Not very good salaries

    Pros

    Lots of social activities, great people, good benefits.

    Cons

    High turnover, you either fit in or you don't. A bit of a cult atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like people. If you want return on investment out of your employees, allow them to grow and support their continued educational pursuits. Get rid of some of your more "special" tenured managers.
