    I have been working at United Drug full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to get some experience in a pharmaceutical business. Very hard to get a permanent contract(takes forever). If you are good employee they will invest into you etc Licenses for VNA, Reach, PPT, Forklift trucks.

    Cons

    The place is usually very busy. Most of the people they hire from agency can hardly speak English. Not great food in a canteen if you work on a evening shift you need to bring your own.

    Advice to Management

    None at this particular moment.

    Pros

    Autonomy galore! If you want to work in fast pace culture where management welcome your ideas and suggestions this is a great place to work. Lots of opportunities to get great experience

    Cons

    Predominantly wholesale business margins are single digit so budgets are always tight so need to be creative in terms of reward
