    I have been working at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    80% of group heads treat their employee's like simple technicians. Associates aren't given many opportunities to demonstrate knowledge of biology, just used for their technical skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everything has to be looked at from a top down approach. Your standard employees are just as valuable as your managers.
