Former employee, loved the company, loved the people

Finance Manager (Former Employee)
Parsippany, NJ

I worked at Novartis full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNovartis truly has some of the best people I have ever worked with. Opportunities to work overseas. Fair compensation. If you work for it, the company is willing to work with you to move into different departments, etc,

ConsIn my experience there was an overabundance and over use of email. Work life balance could have used some improvement. Too many "firedrills"

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to reinvent yourselves. This organization acts quickly, and adapts quickly. Maintain the focus on attracting and retaining top talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
