Does your company require that you’re employed on the day annual bonus is paid in order to receive it? For example if bonus for performance year 2023 is paid out in April/March of 2024 would you forfeit your bonus if you leave before April/March?Bristol Myers Squibb Sanofi Takeda Pfizer AbbVie Novartis

Curious--- have you found using referrals help in the job application process? As a background, I was able to get interview screenings without any referrals. However, some companies prove to be more challenging for me throughout my application process. Please advise. AstraZeneca Novartis Pfizer Merck Regeneron Johnson & Johnson genentech

What are your colleagues talking about?
The campus is pleasant with many amenities. Flexibility of working from home. The salary is ok. IT is responsive and useful. Some colleagues care about patients. These are the same people who are competent, helpful and have integrity.
The lack of integrity is blatant: towards patients first and this is also reflected in relationships between colleagues. The word “accountability” is completely unknown. I noticed inappropriate behavior from several Global directors, including: the use of a condescending tone, sexist and/or age-related comments, and homophobic “jokes.” Examples: one who mentions his genitals, another who says “If you don’t call me [nickname], it’s because we haven’t spent the night together yet”. I highly recommend seeking help outside the company first before contacting Speak Up, the department officially responsible for investigating and acting on violations of the internal Code of Ethics and/or the law. From what I've seen, Local teams are more competent than Global teams. Some people talk, hide their ignorance behind their arrogance and enjoy giving orders while others do the work. The Global strategy is unclear, without vision – although this probably varies by therapeutic area. Advancing a project that is important to patients and defined as a priority is a feat. A new organizational change is underway, which is surprising considering the one that happened only a few months ago. Employees fear for their place, that’s understandable. This makes ego problems worse. There's nothing worse than coworkers projecting their insecurities onto you.
