Approves of CEO

I have been working at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries full-time

Pros

Great benefits - they put 8% of what you make in your 401 K even if you don't contribute anything. If you put in 2% from your own pocket they bump their contribution to 9%. They start you off with 120 hours of vacation, 40 hours of PTO, and 3 floating holidays. There's a pretty decent gym. There's even a company doctor there two days a week, the list goes on. Also there's a great bunch of people there, some of the best I've ever worked with.

Cons

Maintenance techs work for the production department, so you'll spend most of your time as a glorified operator. Advancement is sluggish at best, at least on the aseptic side, unless you want to change jobs. Occasionally there are good opportunities to advance to some pretty good engineering tech jobs, and even full fledged engineering jobs, but those are few and far between. If you want to migrate away from tech work into management, there are more opportunities . Salaries are a lower than most pharma jobs in the triangle, and the raises don't keep up with inflation.

Advice to Management

Try to make the tech jobs more technical and less operator oriented.

    I worked at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. It's a place you can stay at for a lifetime almost. Plenty of opportunity for growth and development. Very family oriented.

    Cons

    It's 24x7 manufacturing, so depending on the job, there can be some long shifts. Of course they are FDA regulated, so at times it gets a bit testy when the FDA arrives for inspections. But that is the same at all pharmaceutical companies.

    poor local managers, no experience, put people into place in a temporary position and then never remove them, no professionally developed as my local manager is more concerned about her own agenday

    Advice to Management

    practice what you preach
