    Pros

    Good science. Good resources. Good management training opportunities.

    Cons

    Most toxic work environment I have ever experienced. Managers only focus on managing "up" to move ahead, often at the cost of their reports. No internal promotions and little recognition for quality work. Speak up and be cut off at the knees culture, even private discussions with manager. Employee review process generally used to punish those who do not fit the "Stepford" employee model. HR's primary role is to protect the abusive middle management corps.

    Advice to Management

    There is such a dramatic disconnect between the stated Novartis values and behaviors norms and those demonstrated by management up to the SVP level that it must be condoned by top management. This must change or Novartis will loose it's innovation culture and become another lock-step big Pharma with a failed internal R&D pipeling.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, good compensation, perks that sometimes go with working in a big company. Also, a great place to work if you like working in an academic environment. The above are specific to NIBR, not necessarily all of Novartis

    Cons

    Very little is challenging and career growth is limited if you are not in the science areas (which I suppose make sense and is probably appropriate for the group). The above are specific to NIBR, not necessarily all of Novartis
