I have been working at Novartis as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

There are ton's of interesting events going on all of the time. Each month they hold a big Fiesta for the employees with more food than you can imagine. Also they have discussion forums and open events for employees to learn more about the science Novartis is working on.

Cons

It is a big company, you can get lost in the shuffle. I have been a contractor for over a year and a half.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None really.

    I worked at Novartis full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work. Better managers are no longer with the site. But then neither are most of the terrible ones that triggered the decline. Jury is still out on the new recruits.

    Cons

    Site is not viable long term. High overhead, drastically reduced product portfolio. Reduced volumes. For a site of this size, no volume = no long term future. Anyone good still left is likely hanging on to false hope that the site will survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is beyond advice.

    I have been working at Novartis full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great purpose to care and cure patients, high corporate code of conduct and social responsibility, smart and talented people, friendly and open culture

    Cons

    Still fragmented Divisions limit the benefits of leveraging one another, global yet does not centralize which leads to complexity and very difficult to move talent across Divisions
