      I worked at Apotex full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Benefits Pension Plan Met some pretty great people If you get in good with the right person/people, you will go far

      Cons

      If you don't get in good with the right person/people, you will not go far Dishonesty from upper management regarding job security and future of the business Extremely toxic areas of HR, should be reported to/investigated by a legislative body Astounding that they are still hiring people knowing they will be unable to provide secure employment for the next 12-18 months

      Advice to Management

      The problem is upper management. The whole culture needs to change, everything starts at the top and makes its way down. As in every company, big or small, you must lead by example.

      See who works hard and reward them for it. You'll never keep your hungry workers around if you cannot keep them happy and driven.
