I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals

Pros

Fair bonus structure, good products, good management

Cons

typical pharma issue. sometimes you walk into a great territory that is performing at a high level, do well for 2 yrs and now you are fast tracked for upward mobility. Doesn't mean you were actually performing at a higher level or a better rep than someone ranked below you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more needs to be evaluated than number for advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Summer hours and Christmas break are nice. Solid company financially. Travel business class regardless of level.

    Cons

    Senior managers (SVP level) are amateurs trying to act like brilliant business strategists. Promotions and opportunities are based on how much you kiss up to those "brilliant strategists". They are like a wolf pack and frequently turn on their own members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Basel should get rid of SVP level and start over.
