    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Novartis (South San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of attending meetings with two people in the department at a time over the course of a day. Questions were primarily derived from my presentation but there were a few retro synthetic analysis questions.
