    Great Company But Very Unprofessional Upper Management

    Manufacturing Specialist (Former Employee)
    Carlsbad, CA

    ProsI worked at the Carlsbad, CA site (until was Closed) and all co-workers were very nice and friendly. Salary and benefits were really good compare to others Big Pharmaceuticals. Human Resources were excellent.

    ConsManagement were the worst I seen in my 16 years pharmaceutical experience (Executives, Directors and some managers). Some Miami, FL & Carlsbad,CA upper management were not professional at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNoven is a great company with wonderful employees but be aware of upper management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worked as Manager then Senior Manager in Medical Affairs for 7 years

    Senior Manager Medical Affairs (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsWork environment mostly friendly, employees are given respect and support, benefits are ok and work is interesting.

    ConsLack of communication between groups and between people in the same group. More incentives needed for the lower rung employees. Decisions taken by upper management sometimes unwise and without consultation with people below who actually do the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve employees at all levels for decisions, insist on better communication and response within and between groups

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    You will be worked to death without the hope of any compensation!

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsBonuses are above average, and employee goals are aligned with company goals.

    ConsManagement plays the blame game with their employees making their lives miserable. While on vacation, management calls you incessantly to do remote work. Everyone gets an average evaluation, creating a socialist regime where no one feels the need to excel beyond their peers. There are no promotions, and the raises are below the cost of living increase. Meetings are non-productive, with no documentation or minutes. If anyone has a problem with management, HR takes the side of management no matter what. Job descriptions are never clearly defined.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to reward employees for hard work, and don't work them to death. There is a reason why the turn-over rate is sky-rocketing. Stop blaming your workers for everything that you are doing wrong.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very Satisfactory

    Chemist (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsGood benefits, fairness, professional career, resources, leadership, improvement opportunities. Noven have economically survived throughout these years. Consistently grow in spite of hurricanes, Twin Towers, Wall Street disasters among others true reasons. They pay fair bonusses when others companies had faired employess. Noven have increased salaries when others bigger companies did not even think on that. Noven consistenly protect their employess. Of course is not perfect but Noven is the place when I will like to get my retirement. I am proud of my company and I am trust on CEOs, upper management and coworkers.

    ConsThey are not really downsides but there was not fancy Xtmas parties any more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore interaction with analysts will improve communication. Management vision is correct just share with us using informal channes as lunch, coffee breakfast or whatever resource enable communication direct from you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Noven

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsIt is a growing company and is a good place to start your career. The employees are friendly and cooperative.

    ConsThe management is too far removed for the size of the company, often not understanding what happens in their own divisions. The morale and turnover reflect that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet involved with your staff, get your hands dirty. It would help the morale and the employee satisfaction on a daily basis.
