    I have been working at Novartis full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, nice environment, new equipment. Everyone so far has been really nice so far.

    Cons

    The lack of communication is horribly obvious, even though I am a new employee, I see this from a mile away. Finger pointing between groups and departments at this place is just terrible. If you make one mistake, be sure and know that someone will most likely jump right on you, even if its something small and can be easily fixed. I've been turned down to eat at tables at the cafeteria, saying they had a full table, when walking back by table was not even half full and lunch was pretty much over. Hard to meet people since I mostly work in the upper manufacturing area. Upper management seems could care less, I've already heard horror stories from current employees, which makes my decision to stay harder and harder everyday. It seems there is always something wrong here, and it does not seem to be getting any better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to talk to their employees more, rather then the supervisors. Ideas and communication gets lost down the chain.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
