Pros

Great co-workers, non-intrusive (often 8k miles away) management, good facilities

Cons

Horrific waste of time on-boarding, serious turf wars among management from 2nd level up, odd culture of many contractors/fewer fte's. Management doesn't look very closely at employee interactions - and this becomes a disconnect.

Advice to Management

Concentrate more seriously on great internal tools. Virtulization is the road, but simplify the process for everyone.

    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.

    Pros

    great science, excellent place to work

    Cons

    high stress level, too many projects ongoing, lots of distraction.

    Advice to Management

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