Future isn't bright

Associate Director (Current Employee)
East Hanover, NJ

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

ConsShaky 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 Senior ManagementBring back Kurt Graves and Len Kanavy

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good company to work for.

    Director (Current Employee)
    East Hanover, NJ

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


    Pros: Good pipeline, work life balance Cons: Too much finance driven. Business should have more authority. Advice to Senior Management: Too many dead weights in the company. Implement GE model where bottom 10% needs to be… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
