    I have been working at Apotex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company does have great health benefits and PTO. They match on 401k up to 4% and the people are friendly. I believe salary may be good as well but not 100% sure. They are starting to try to build morale again which is good.

    Cons

    They are moving to Miramar location. Some people who are in upper management should not be as they don't know how to lead but intimidate. When or if people are promoted, they do not attend management training. Departments are over worked and under staffed. There is not much room for growth. Communication is not good as well.

    Advice to Management

    Train Managers how to be effective leaders and promote within. Communicate more with employees.

    I worked at Apotex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They do offer very competitive salaries. You work among some great coworkers and people. They are willing to allow relatively flexible hours.

    Cons

    It started to become an extremely political environment. Right before I left, the last place you could go to with an issue was HR. It became more about titles and less about relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Watch the workload that people have before giving negative evaluations. I was absolutely doing the work of 3 people.
