    I have been working at Novartis full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, vacation time. They seem have a decent pipeline, and are pushing for new products to reach market faster. People and environment are usually decent. Immense resource of intelligent employees.

    Cons

    It seems you have to know someone to get in, and be "chosen" to move forward into a higher position. Also, certain situations are not handled by management and HR in a confidential or proper manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more direction for newer employees to be able to reach higher levels. Pay more attention to how functional managers behave toward their subordinates. Corporate management may have great strategies, but those ideas will be lost if not carried throughout all levels of management.

    I have been working at Novartis part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free transport, lots of free meals at 5-star hotels, lots of celebrations, stable company

    Cons

    Internal environment is highly political, politics is being played at every level, technical skills, knowledge and hard work cannot take you to the top, but managing your manager and being manager's pet are the real skills required to grow here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should avoid and dislike butter and pay more attention to the actual development of talent.
