    Novartis is as amazing as I read it would be. Going on my third year, and the culture that is practiced in the oncology division, is above standard, Equality and appreciation is always given.


    There are only so many growth opportunities for administrative staff.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Novartis.

    Interview Details

    Time consuming but very clear interview process. HR and local management took very long time to finalize and notifying for job offer. First interview via phone, and second and third interviews were panel based. HR manager and department manager were involved for panel interview. HR waited for long time for offering the job after third interview and medical / physical evalutation. Overall interview process was good. I have joined Novartis before merger of Ciba and Sandoz.
