I have been working at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

If you are going to work for big pharma, this is the place to be. NIBR has managed to maintain an innovative and collaborative culture separate from the "business" side of the Novartis family.

Cons

It has expanded very rapidly over the last 10 years and encountered some hickups on the way. Red tape is unavoidable within an organization this size but this has improved lately.

    focus and give clear priority to people from top would help. too many things on anyone's plate can only be counter-productive
