    Novartis is NOT a place to grow professionally

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Emeryville, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Emeryville, CA

    Pros

    - Flexible hours and scheduling
    - Discounted NVD products
    - Average benefits. New gym.
    - Limited opportunities for projects abroad (nationally & internationally)

    Cons

    - Little recognition of effort and work. Management is quick to blame and provides little support to their own groups.
    - Promotions given even if individuals are not fully qualified
    - Work is done and prioritized in a constant "crisis" mode, providing little time and opportunity to get "normal" work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide mandatory performance review of managers from the people they manage! Provide better management training. Stop hiring contracts and then extending their contracts for years with no end in sight. Stop running around like chickens with their heads cut off, you'll hurt yourself and others.

    Too much movement of associates and management.

    Maintain people longer in their position so that they are fully accountable for their decisions, and they build solid relationships with others.
