      I have been working at Patheon full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good location. Co workers are great and you get to learn a lot from your peers. You get to network with staff at many of the top 20 pharma companies and the work is interesting. Making a difference in patient lives feels rewarding and you get to be involved in many different aspects of the business. The company subsidizes cafeteria meals so lunch is cheap. Salary is ok.

      Cons

      Systems and processes are broken and inefficient and management routinely ignores employee solutions that address root causes and instead focuses on band aid solutions that keep resulting in wasted energy and client frustration. Business processes are poorly designed and not documented which results in a lot of needless effort being spent on day to day transactions. There are a lot of SAP and Quality System enhancements...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to and value you’re employees. Too many good people are leaving because of this.
