    Pros

    Great benefits with 401K match and additional annual company contribution of 5-10% depending on age, good salaries and bonus, opportunity to interact with a global team, opportunities to contribute in different types of activities.

    Cons

    Too many layers of red tape to get things accomplished, not clear who has the authority or is empowered to make decisions. Work-life balance is okay.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Novartis (Newark, NJ).

    Interview

    Meeting with HR, hiring managers from different stat department, do presentation finally. The interview lasts for whole day. You have to meat these people one by one. In general, they will ask what you's what working experience, what's your interest. They introduced their company, the function of different department to see whether you are interested in their company and which department you like to work. You are going to have a lunch with interviewers. In the afternoon, you will give a presentation about your work.
