    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, friendly work environment, upper management is very approachable, lots of transparency within the company, good pay, diverse workplace, on-site gym.

    Cons

    Can take management a long time to make a decision. Sometimes the cultural differences between the Denmark headquarters and its offices abroad can get in the way of making decisions quickly and efficiently.

    I worked at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries

    Pros

    Salary is fair, delivery devices outstanding

    Cons

    An elite and unique sales organization has turned into big pharma.
    Little opportunity for true advancement, although you will be led to believe
    otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cherish your senior and experienced people.
    Get rid of the frat boy mentality that goes all the way to the top.
    Embrace the European values and the culture that they brought.

    I have been working at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries

    Pros

    The company talks a good game, talks the talk

    Cons

    But does not walk the walk. Extremely poor promotion process. Numerous positions filled without being posted. Those posted has the prospects going thru a process to fill a position that was previously filled by a poor candidate due to the promotion clique liked that person.
    Accountability does not exists except for those they find undesirable (Those who are trying to do their jobs per all the companies policies/SOP's). Those poor souls are terminated if they are lucky. The rest are given jobs where their work is ignored. Just look at the current situation versus all of the previous audits to see this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability? Try it you might find that site Clayton will be a lot better

    Pros

    Danish company with European benefits, high profit margin, and a meaningful mission

    Cons

    Danish company where you can only advance so far, and the company culture does not reward taking risks and being ambitious. If you set high goals and fail to deliver, then you are a failure, regardless of how much better than everyone else you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a real vision for the company, and be consistent with direction.
