    The quality of senior management varies greatly throughout the organization. Positive experience depends on location and manager. Lack of transparency around promotions and employees not kept to equal standards.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my career on outside sales, till I was hired by novo! They provide there people with quick two week training which sucks

    Cons

    The hiring process could be divined as difficult at best! Had to fly all the way to Orlando at least they cover all expense and are very polite during the process

    Pros

    I have worked here 8+ years and HATE it. No pro's to list other than it is a paycheck.

    Cons

    Terrible management from Senior level to DBM. If you voice concerns get ready for the witch hunt to begin. Partners are so paranoid they start trying to throw each other under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the size of the pods!

    Pros

    Patient focus centrered and high willing to defeat diabetes are the most attractive points at NN. Sustainability are increasing worldwide footprint.

    Cons

    Environment "appears" open door but if it is a real challenge of the status quo the power principles prevail. There are many systems estimulates the employee to be transparent and then protected by anonymous terms but it will be disclosured if it make business sense and employee will not be into short pants; most of bosses are arrogant and politics are the basis to have career growth - it is not competence based but relationship instead; in daily basis the more the structure goes down company values disappear;

    Advice to Management

    Review talent and succession management for driving the company toward real competence based; fight against huge conflict of interest among peers; bring back the founders spirit that are reflected in company values;
    Make sure diversity in board of directors re to origin and gender are there - it is not KPI driven rather it is walking the talk;

    Pros

    Great people, Financial outlook is very good, Exposure and opportunities at a global level

    Cons

    Management and Leadership changes. Employee survey at the function group level is engineered by function managers. This allows for managers to keep their favourites loyal to them to get higher rating on the survey. It is so much against the grain for rewarding and growing talents.
