    I worked at Novo Nordisk full-time

    Pros

    Hands down amongst the most superior work cultures and work life balance of any company out there, anywhere

    Cons

    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

    Grade American employees more fairly and consider for promotions and career advancement. US salaries are below middle for the pharma industry.
