    Pros

    Please note that Fougera (formerly Nycomed) is now part of Sandoz.

    There are some managers who are very professional and helpful. The salaries and benefits are great, as they are part of Sandoz/Novartis.

    Cons

    Having worked for several companies, I consider Fougera one of the worst. It has a very bad working environment, with negative attitudes, a lack of accountability, lots of complaining, and very rude and unprofessional personnel. Some employees are very lazy – including one who sleeps and snores in their cubicle for 80% of the day, and another who does not take the extra step to return trash cans to their original locations when they empty the trash (these little things make a difference). There is a lot of animosity between line staff and management. Sandoz, the governing company, is trying to implement new policies and procedures that would steer Fougera in the right direction, but there is a large amount of resistance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Sandoz, please take a look very closely at Fougera - people have been working there too long and have created a culture of dissent. Replace/restructure senior management of the sites and trickle this down to improve attitudes and employee mentalities - there are many people out there who are looking for a job that can perform these tasks with a better mindset, focus on quality, and attitude! Start writing up and terminating personnel who do not follow policies and procedures (there are quite a number of these!) With a better staff, you could meet and even exceed your targets for this company. Also, the buildings could use an exterior powerwash and a receptionist – they give a very bad impression to someone who is visiting for the first time.

    I worked at Nycomed US full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a small company that was trying to grow and improve. There was an opportunity to work on many things. Life was never boring. Surrounded by many well-intentioned and talented people.

    Cons

    There was a perpetual change in management. The long term goals of the company were never communicated. There was no coordination of effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a course and communicate the long-term objectives.

    Pros

    Compensation and Benefits are probably the best around. Compared to other companies I've worked for, they are one of the best.

    Cons

    Some indeciveness throughout senior management, but not as bad as other employers I've worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for whats best for the company and its employees....

    Pros

    Clean work environment and controled atmosphere with good benefits including dental and a pension. 100% Match on your 401K up to the first 3% then 50% match on the next 2%.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough indians. QA runs the operation and so much red tape you can't get any real work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who have been there and take advantage of their experience. Use logic when making decisions not feelings.

    Pros

    Benefits and salary are pretty good must be the only way they can attract people

    Cons

    No communication no concern for the employees management only carres about lining its own pockets

    Place some value on the employee, stop only caring about yourself, show your face once in a while and not in a video
