I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

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

Cons

There 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 ManagementAdvice

Make people accountable, and don't hire more people than you need.
