Worked at Novartis for 10+ years. It was fantastic until 2006 . Then layoffs every year until 2012.

Executive Sales Representative (Former Employee)

ProsExcellent compensation if you did well. Excellent benefits. The outlook for the company looks very promising. Generous severance if you are let go.

ConsThere is no future in pharmaceuticals. Go only if you are young and are not looking for a long term career. There are so many pharmaceutical reps. out there unable to find employment.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake people accountable, and don't hire more people than you need.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
