    I worked at JSS Medical Research full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely not one thing. Management are the ones that do the positive reviews.

    Cons

    work week may be 35 but you do alot more and not paid for it. Or they will cut everyone's hours. They except you to do everything without getting paid for it. There is no training. Management is the worst I have ever encountered. They think of themselves. Lots of yelling and swearing, absolutely no respect

    I worked at JSS Medical Research full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for and great people at all levels of the company. Everyone is supportive of each other like a family. The most amazing part of this company is it does not let you feel like you are a employee. It is more like a university; energetic, friendly and multicultural. I left this company because of family reasons to move somewhere else.

    Cons

    In fact I will reapply if I plan to move back to Montreal

    - Coworkers are friendly, welcoming and hard working. - 35 hrs a week schedule. - Good times during lunch. - Family run. - Variaty in tasks and projects. - Lots of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    - No official annual job review for each employee.(Need to ask for raise) - Not a lot of feedback from management - Don't get paid for overtime ( I didnt have to do a lot of overtime but some of the employees do it often). You have to pick whether you would like a work/life balance or whether you prefer to push yourself for your career.
