    Pros

    they actually have great benefits compared to other lfie sciences companies. of course they can't compete with Genentech.

    Cons

    wow.. to many to list.
    their moto is to keep talent and promote within. i think it's the complete the opposite considering they've mastered in laying off great FTE employees, sending work off shore, and hiring mainly contractors and temps to save money. If you've been with the company for many years, more than likely, your colleagues who have less years with Novartis are making 30-40% more than you. Now, if you have a close relationship with management, then surely they can get you a 30% pay increase on a promotion without hesitation.

    The indians have very long hours while the Chiefs have a 6 hour work day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you truly value talent, then do a better job in keeping them.
