Hands down amongst the most superior work cultures and work life balance of any company out there, anywhere
Higher positions and promotions mainly favor Danish. Unless you go to corporate or other non technical areas, Americans will not move above a Director level in the company.
Advice to Management

I applied online. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk.
3 interviews - phone and 2 in person. Standard questions and process. Offer extended and accepted. Once accepted HR provided a very detailed offer letter and package. Overall it was a standard interview and HR process - drug test and background check done after offer. Start date 2 weeks after offer extended.
