    I worked at Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable through depressions and reorganizations. Great medical benefits, vacation time, holiday shutdown, and yearly bonus incentive. Reasonably priced onsite lunch bistro. There is a large pool of smart, experienced techs here. If you get in the right group, you will learn from your co-workers. Interesting science and Novartis looks nice on your resume, but don’t stay here longer than a couple of years.

    Cons

    Low base salary for San Diego. Merit increases average 2%. Zero work-life balance. Expect long work days with no appreciation of your efforts. Overly competitive environment for promotions fosters backstabbing and secrecy. There is no accountability, so micromanagers and lazy techs are permitted to thrive. Very little opportunity for career advancement, regardless of tenure or scientific contributions. Many of the PhDs here do not belong in management roles; they are not intelligent leaders and are struggling with incompetence or insecurity. Your yearly performance review rating is not a measure of your accomplishments. It’s based on how powerful your boss is perceived within the group. You do not have any ability to review your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Normalize how you treat employees at the same level. Expect the same quality of work from every employee at the same level, and cut back on the favoritism. Stop treating techs like slaves and pay them for their efforts. Management is aware of the overworked and unhappy, but nothing is being done about it.
