Current Intern - Intern

I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline for less than a year

Pros

Warmest people Lovely office Easy commute Work life balance Equal opportunity and recognition

Cons

Slow moving business Needs better cross functional collaboration and vendor management

Current Employee - Associate Director

I have been working at Novo Nordisk full-time

Pros

Great benefits, but most important of all great people to work with. I have been to other reputable pharma companies and the general attitude of co-workers, colleagues, and senior leadership is very... positive. I am glad that I was was presented the opportunity to work at Novo Nordisk!

Cons

None that I can think of.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great morale
