    I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    People were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Work load. No chance for a consideration to become a permanent employee as majority of people working at the work site was contract employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Cross-divsional opportunities abound; size is right enough to be nimble; quick decision process; great talent and product pipeline; key focus on associate development and next role; work culture is not typical to Big Pharma; "scrappy" culture, the ferocious underdog.

    Cons

    Not too process-oriented, certain favors given to consultants with McKinsey or BCG background (rumors only which can be disconcerting sometimes); on-boarding not too great that most associates are left to figure out the process and people by themselves; promotion can be highly politicized that you need to have the right connections to be considered.
