    Pros

    Sandoz is a multinational company with international assignment opportunities. It has good marketshare all around the world. Sandoz is producing good quality products with low costs. The products are reachable by end customers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, in Sandoz employees are dispensable. Sandoz Ilac Turkey's turnover rate is more than 30%. People are not promoted and whenever there is an open position, it is filled from outside. Decision making is so centralized that it takes even months to react to an issue

    Doesn't Recommend
