    I have been working at Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great science. Tons of smart people and access to cutting edge technology. Our robotics and screening are second to none. Things get done very quickly here and management does a good job making sure we have all the reagent/technology we need (although headcount per project is lower than other sites).

    Cons

    Average promotion cycle is once every ten years. Very little upward career growth potential if you do not have a PhD. Expect to be overworked if you apply here.

    Advice to Management

    Provide feedback to executive management and let them know there is too much bureaucracy. The MBA corporate nonsense slows us scientists down!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation.

    Interview

    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. :)
