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

Pros

Diverse/Global, various opportunities, forward thinking. Opportunity to drive activities and challenge the status quo. Flexibility in work. Flat hierarchy.

Cons

big company bureaucracy, heavy process oriented, constant change, heavy work load

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take risks. Be willing to cut losses early on - don't do it just because you have spent good monies or time. This requries good risk management at every level. Hear from people at ground level.

    Experienced and skilled workers need to know they are valued. One way this can be clearly seen is through compensation increase.
