I have been working at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 10 years)

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
