Interesting

I enjoyed my work with challenge's but I had great management team support. If I can get a chance I would like to work there again. The most important thing about Aspen you have to understand their policy and SOP's.

Pros

Nothing

Distribution so need to get through the days inbound and outbound volumes timeously and accurately Batch control inbound and out with qa stock holding in mind and MCC compliance Management a bit tense at times but a good team in general Good culture of work and reaching targets and problem solving Monthend volumes to reach sales but workable Having a warehouse operation where team work and customer satisfaction is top of the list and a rewarding experience when all runs according to plan and the entire operation buy into what is important which is to supply customers on time in full

Pros

Training and most weekends off so work family time balance achieveable

Cons

Month end peaks to reach sales targets were a bottleneck

Productive strict fun place

Aspen Pharmacare has been an amazing place to work for,I have gained a lot of analytical and leadership skills.The culture of the company has been the guide that communication,respect and accountability is the key. The hardest part is when the retrenchment phase,where I found out that I am in the retrenchment pool. I enjoyed working with different people with different personality and sharing of ideas to reach common goal. If it was not for retrenchment I would still be working for this company.

Cons

Excessive over time

Pros

Goal driven company, both for the employer and employee

Cons

Top management still not transformed. (Racially & Gender)

Fair

Good for exposure, a bit racist and discriminatory, colleagues are jolly but bosses can be tough. Travel is good interms of exposure and you grow if you want to. Push yourself and be recognized otherwise it has upside down like any other cooperative

Very Corporate, yet caring and interested in personal growth and advancement

Arrived at 07h00 - day ended at 16h00; Worked independently. Workplace Culture: honesty, integrity and transparency in all matters between Management and employees highly valued; The most difficult part of the job to interact with employees who did not contribute effectively and efficiently to team; the most enjoyable part of the job diversity of the job functions

Microbial Technician

You must always be on time try to be 10 mins before work. I was an Environmentalist and had to see over my team in the sterile facility. You have to to read your SOP thoroughly and keep your SOP version always up to date. They are a strict company. There was always work and you need to finish even if your shift is over. Getting paid was the enjoyable part of the month.
