    Novartis is well managed financially and attracts good talent.

    Novartis had too many reorganizations and did not value career development. Culture lacked transparency.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Exciting pipeline. There's also the desire to be innovative and try out new approaches even if they're not being used elsewhere in the pharmaceutical industry.

    Cons

    Broken processes. Too much time in the marketing area is spent in ensuring compliance with FDA regulations. I think smarter processes can result not only in a high level of compliance but also in more time to do the core parts of the job. Also, rolling layoffs introduce constant uncertainty into the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    See how much time your people are wasting on bureaucratic tasks and improve processes to address the situation. Also, pick an organizational structure and stay with it for awhile.
