I have been working at Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation full-time
Good science and have some very talented and motivated people
Benefits such as stock grants are shared only by management above certain rank and does not trickle down to the associates. Upper management is trying to be innovative but sometime doesn't have ideas.
Advice to Management
Management should invest in training managers in how to mentor and review their associates.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation.
Applied through website, after few weeks, I got a phone call from hiring manager and have phone interview about 40min. At the end of the phone interview, he asked for web interview. We have 50min web-seminar and ~20min of Q & A. After web-seminar, Hiring Manager called me back and asked for the onsite interview. However, after the web-seminar, I didn't hear back about 3weeks. I sent follow-up email and he responded quickly. But one week later, he sent short email that the position is closed.
Although I didn't get the offer and the case was closed in the middle of the process, Hiring manager and other members of the team were really gentle and nice. Also, Hiring manager responded promptly which was very nice for job-seeker. I felt San Diego's sunny and nice weather from their attitude. :)
