    I got whiplash from the number of times management changed their minds

    Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsGood commute, non "upper" management level people were awesome, had a really good boss but unfortunately he could not handle the crazy dramatic inconceivable personalities around him

    ConsSwear to god, i think there are some governments run better than Novartis Emeryville

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic about goals and timelines. Don't just implement a system or change without good communication.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Rigid place to work - if you have any autonomy in your soul, avoid all costs.

    ProsIf you love pharmaceuticals, and you love precision and not communicating with others, you'll be happy here.

    ConsNo real community effort here. It's cubicle heaven.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet people breathe. Get some communication going and getaway from the uber-Germanic approach of work for work's sake.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
