    I worked at Novartis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of networking opportunities, great working environments (buildings are mostly nice and up to date and with a lot of space and natural lighting), lower levels can get to interact with higher levels. Competitive pay and great life/work balance.

    Cons

    Having done PHD and or post doc in Novartis will not help much landing a position in there. Often management does not consult lower levels when taking decisions, and these are not communicated to all levels a it should. Communication and integration issues exist.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid distressing situations for lower levels by improving intentions, goal settings and listen more before taking certain decisions.
