    I worked at Novartis full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Tremendous scope for movement & development. Great products across a broad range of healthcare solutions. Big, international projects with real impact.

    Cons

    Mismatched expectations across international teams. Inconsistent management quality across functions & divisions. There are different cultural norms for work/life balance depending on site & business unit. Compensation is middle of the road for most roles/functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create greater consistency in culture across divisions & sites. There's still greater tribal/functional identity than there is "One Novartis" - which impacts overall quality initiatives and performance.

    I worked at Novartis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -dynamic workplace
    -young workforce
    -beautiful Switzerland HQ campus with 5 star restaurants.

    Cons

    -daily pressure that never last
    -no organization what so ever
    -if you know certain people, congrats you are promoted!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Invest in IT please. We had been so behind technology that I was ashamed to tell which systems we were using.
    -We are human and we need to breathe. Maybe you can see the workforce as humans with a soul and family waiting at home. Nobody works until midnight in Switzerland but in Novartis do.
    -Reduce turnover. I often ended up meeting 4-5 people in the same role in a time frame of 1 year.
    -Value working from home
    -Value committed people.
    -All of the above is valid for Novartis Oncology.

    Doesn't Recommend
