Bev who suffers from osteoporosis says, "“I had Aclasta once a year 2012 - 2015 due to osteoporosis - Worst mistake I ever made! I have daily incapacitating and severe joint, muscle and back pain, cannot have a tooth extracted due to osteonecrosis of the jaw (as per the maxillo facial surgeon), my vision became blurred almost immediately after The first session ... my life is no longer my healthy happy life and I have to endure rhizotomies (Which have not helped one bit) because of the back pain. Walking is painful. Shoulders are messed. There is no antidote for this drug either! This was not something we are told beforehand ... we are still deciding to join a class action against the company that manufactures this drug KNOWING what the aide effects are! We would NEVER have said yes! Do your research guys! Bev - South Africa”

Analist (Former Employee) says"Üniversitede staj hayalimdi olmamıştı ama mezun olunca kalite kontrol laboratuvarında işe girdim. Hayatımda belki de en kötü geçirdiğim dönemlerdi. Hiyerarşik düzenin bu kadar baskın bu kadar kibir yaratan bir ortamında 4 ay dayanabildim. Çabalarınıza asla teşekkür beklemeyin, mesaiye kalmak zorundasınız genelde ve bunu sana sormazlar onlar istiyorlarsa bir şekilde kalırsınız. Mesai ücrete tabi değildir maaşınızın içinde olduğunu söylerler zaten. Maaşları da düşüktür. Asgari civarı başlangıç. Üstünüzde çalışan kişiler üstten bakarlar. Kibir ego emir... ilk iş deneyimim ve hüsranım. Sanmayın ki sadece benim böyle düşünen. Kalite kontroldeki herkes mutsuz, mecburi ihtiyaçtan vs çalışıyorlar. Zaten sürekli işten çıkarlar istifalar ardı ardına gelir. 3 yıl oldu ben çıkalı, umarım düzelmiştir pek inanmasam da Cons: Ücretsiz Mesaiye kalış, üsttekilerin kibiri, saygı görmemek"
