    Pros

    The atmosphere is really academic in some departments. The pay is high compared to surrounding biotechs. Most people are very smart and very experienced.

    Cons

    Negotiate your salary well because raises are very low and over time you lose that competitive salary. The work ethic is very lax compered to biotech and it will be hard to stay on top with everyone only working 5hrs a day. Management are not available to associates and project information is hidden from the lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain talent then you need to give better raises. You should calibrate with other companies in Cambridge. The company needs to be more open to associates with respect to projects.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research.

    Interview

    After a day, I got a call back from the lab head of DMPK asking to schedule a phone interview. The interview went pretty well. They asked me questions about my major, my skills, my job experience, my interest in research and etc. They were very friendly.
