I worked at Novo Nordisk full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

When I first started there, when Martin Soeters was President, it was fantastic. I completely fed into company culture hype and, at the time, it was a great place to work. When Jurek took over though, things changed. Your experience there will depend greatly on your manager and your department. It is highly competitive now... probably because of the "best places to work" designation. So, if you are not the type to knock your coworkers down and climb over their backs to get ahead, this is probably not the place for you.

Salaries are also considerably lower than industry standards.

Cons

HR spends a ton of money to be listed as one of the Best Places to Work, but doesn't necessarily make sure they deserve to be there.

    Pros

    Company Culture
    Work-Life Balance is always taken into consideration and the company strives to maintain this.
    Training for Staff is comprehensive and engaging
    Excellent communication
    Company is very philanthropic

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a definite lack of defined working processes, however I have noticed that this is the baseline through the pharmaceutical world.
    Also, better communication between various departments could be improved upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees
