Pros

Awesome facility, staff and management. Lots of special days and occasions to make staff feel appreciated.

Cons

Dealing with irate clients can be draining

Advice to Management

Don't exclude your temporary workers so much. They do most of the work!

    Pros

    Good Products and the company does do a lot for people with diabetes

    Cons

    So much drama, politics, harassment, poor management, inconsistent behavior and just an all around terrible place to work. The left hand never knows what the right hand is doing. The don't know how to treat people and lower level management is out running rampant with their gross abuse of power. For many people (myself being one of them) that worked for this company for a number of years and was hired back when it still had a family feel and they wanted to help you promote and do your best, to watch it change so dramatically and try to become "big pharma" with little regard for the people out there pounding the pavement everyday, it truly is sad. They constantly bombard you with busy work, metrics that are ridiculous, pointless and usually unattainable. It is a joke to most of the employees that somehow Novo Nordisk continues to rank on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For. We used to all laugh and say if they only knew how unhappy people really are and how bad things are behind the scenes. The opportunities for advancement are few and far between. everything is based on politics. The way they run things is completely skewed and backwards. The salaries aren't great starting out and it isn't easy to make your bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Fire them all and start fresh. You are losing a lot of good people that just can't stand to be treated the way they are or to watch the company move in the wrong direction.

    Working across the Atlantic. Significant attention to consensus building and not enough action
