What is paid time off like at Novartis?

Pros

95% of the people are great to work with. Convenient perks include: onsite cafe and dry cleaning service, onsite clinic, discount programs through work, Benefits: Health insurance coverage is pretty good for lower cost. 401K match and additional company contribution makes it very competitive. 3 weeks vacation to start, company closed week of Christmas.

Cons

Should be easier to achieve promotions especially at support staff levels. Rating system for annual reviews discourages employees to push themselves harder than they already are. Onsite gym atmosphere is awful.

Advice to Management

Create environment where people want to push themselves to do more in order to achieve promotion or higher rating for better raise and bonuses. Encourage work life balance flexibility like the rest of Novartis! Encourage individual's growth with a clear plan to achieve much deserved promotions across the board.
