    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

    Pros

    Friendly environment thanks to humanistic view of managers.
    High environmental concern
    Humanistic approach to operators
    Very talented, experienced managers

    Cons

    Slow promotion, you need to be patient to promote
    Superficial R&D, all the know-how is in Novartis, no need or for developing
    Little budget for mobility, improvement activities and projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see Sandoz applying a continuous improvement program like six sigma or and efficient lean approach.
    Create a more open environment for personal development
