I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Pharmaceuticals was the best job I ever had. I was hired in 1999....and, laid off last month. I was always treated well during my tenure, and, sad I was laid off.

Cons

The industry has changed dramatically over the years...sadly, it is circling the drain...massive layoffs everywhere in big Pharma...hence, the layoff....3500 in the last 2 years.

    I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    fair compensation, fairly good work life balance, great specialty products

    Cons

    Novartis has not fought back when patents were challenged, have given up on great primary care products when they hit a glitch. They have lost the great culture that they had 5 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regain the culture of innovation for primary care products.
