    I have been working at Actelion as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Warm relationships within teams and departments, flat hierarchy are definitely one of the most important things. Free coffee is nice, too

    Cons

    Bit rigid to innovations, some things are very poorly planned and bad implemented (logistics), not much possibilities for a career in administrative areas

    Negative Outlook
