I have been working at Novartis

Pros

Good benefits and a good pipeline. They have a work from home policy and flex-time. Free gym and the on-site health care is great.

Cons

No job growth, limited career development. Promises of promotions, and then they don't go through when the time comes. Lack of training or definitive policies. Each team does the same task different ways. Poor management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

LISTEN to your people. Communicate with them- ask them what they need to make their job better. Appreciate and respect your people and reward them for a job well-done!

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Interesting research. Not much else.

    Cons

    The company must offer excellent benefits to compensate for the toxic work environment.
    -Poor leadership
    -back stabbing politics
    -leaders (want-to-be leaders) with little or no experience
    -no work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    you get to meet great people, establish professional network

    Cons

    there is way too much politics, decisions are made by senior management with very little transparency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on the end goal which is to develop medicine that cures diseases, less on your personal bonus packages
