I have been working at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good pipeline, work life balance

Cons

Too much finance driven. Business should have more authority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many dead weights in the company. Implement GE model where bottom 10% needs to be let go every year. Similarly too many BPAs in finance organization compared to other Pharma companies.

    I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They tried to develop their employees to their potential. They offered extensive training to achieve those goals. They strived to be Best in Class with the other companies. Most recently, they have changed their model to accommodate the changing market and customer needs. The reps are very happy to have management that is finally not pushing canned phrases down customers throats!

    Cons

    Still a big company that talks more about change than actually implements the change they talk aboout.

    Pros

    Still a nice company to work for, great benefits (though they are getting worse), mostly nice and well-qualified people

    Cons

    Shaky pipeline, bad decision making by management - remember Famvir? No way they'll find a substitute for Diovan cash cow so it will be one lay-off afer another. The company is going down, hopefully they have enough money in Basel it keep it afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back Kurt Graves and Len Kanavy
