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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Lots of free food. Some very nice/accountable people, but beaten down by the number of layoffs. Seen consultants treated very well. Work / life balance.

    Cons

    Run like a mom and pop, yet too many layers. No job description (wha?). No showing the ropes or mentoring - dive feet first. Sing a good song regarding monitoring & control, but processes aren't written up. Important positions leave but not refilled. Not allowed to move around so you move out.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to write-up flow of processing, roles and responsibilities, etc.
