Pros

Culture that promotes some aspects of technology, flexible hours, great work environment

Cons

Very short sighted when it comes to using technology. Only interested in current technology and not interested in other technologies that may be relevant. Management (or those given the illusion and responsibility of management) are not well organized and fail in communication. After meeting my hiring manager on the first day, I never heard from him again. The next senior person in the group was in charge and his management and communication skills were very weak.

Advice to Management

Better organization and communication. Stop making several versions of the same application for different groups, it is a tremendous amount of waste, in time and money.

    Pros

    Novartis is a good company with good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    If you do not work in Oncology, a lot of the benefits seem to disappear and job security becomes an issue.


  2. Novartis work environment is one of the best, if not the best in the pharma industry!

    Pros

    Flexi schedule with plans of building a day care center on the East Hanover campus for working mothers. It's a place young recruits can build a life time career. Excellent job rotation programs around the world.

    Cons

    Try as much as you can to stay in the company and extablish a strong network across job functions because as soon as you get out by way of lay-offs, it's difficult getting back in.

    Advice to Management

    Should emphasize more on the job rotations to broaden employees skills
