    Experience at Novartis is highly dependent upon group politics

    I worked at Novartis

    Pros

    Overall, Novartis as a whole is not a bad place to work: employees tend to be fairly compensated, the benefits package is good, the vacation policy can be fairly liberal, and the work tends to be interesting and meaningful. Additionally, depending upon which site you are, you might get some extra vacation time between Christmas and New Years which is always a plus.

    Cons

    There is a great degree of differences between groups at Novartis and getting or not getting a promotion tends to depend more upon your group than upon your actual performance. While this is pretty much true no matter where you are, the problem seems to be exasperated at Novartis and senior leadership doesn't seem to do much to prevent it. Additionally, group leadership can be quite toxic and work to actively drive high performance out of a group if they are seen as a political threat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure standards are being evenly applied across the company

    Pros

    I think is a great place to work because you can learn from the best people in the field. There are many Scientists and you can learn a lot from them

    Cons

    have to work long hours to finish project as any workplace. It was a long commute for me that
    s why this new job is better
