    I have been working at Sunovion full-time (More than 10 years)


    I love the people that I work with. Sunovion is always challenging and you never get bored. You get to work across different departments and your job is never the same. I feel like I really make a difference at Sunovion. Benefits and salary are great.


    It would be great if there was a better work from home policy. We can work at home one day a week, but there are to many rules around it. Two days week with more flexibility would be much better.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sunovion.


    Phone screen with HR and then an on-site interview. I had a contact there and the process was pretty straightforward. Overall, they moved quickly for me but I do know as with many other companies, the process was slow. I think it depends on the importance of the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions. Asked about past experiences, leadership styles. Because I had a contact, it was more about "fit" rather than expertise.   Answer Question
