Some growing pains but exciting place to work

ProsIf 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.

ConsIt 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
