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

Pros

Full scale of career opportunities, support at district and corporate level to field are good as long as your manager supports.

Cons

Manager changes seem more frequent and each manager has own agenda and process. Once everyone is on same page then a new manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate level directors with 18-24 month contracts and goals cloud longer term vision at field level.

    Pros

    . Good company for starting a career . Little perks like company picnic, lunches, etc

    Cons

    A lot of departments understaffed, overworked. Management pointing fingers at one another. Low-morale is evident but managers ill-equipped to handle. Difficult to professionally move around another department unless you are in the higher management level or unless you are within the group's "elite or hip crowd". Seems to foster a spirit of fraternization among managers rather than foster inspiration to future leaders. A lot of talented and efficient employees specially in key areas were let go without extensive consultation or planning. Use to be "honor-system" now, time-in/out clocks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop with politicking and retain good and efficient employees.
