    The Land of CYA

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Director in East Hanover, NJ
    Former Employee - Director in East Hanover, NJ

    I worked at Novartis

    Pros

    The comp package is quite good, but expect to work hard to keep it.

    Cons

    The politics are overwhelming, so be prepared to wade through the mire of red tape.
    The corporate motto may be "Caring and Curing" but the actuality is "make your numbers or your fired."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees. Open workspace isn't the answer to becoming a great company.
