I have been working at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great co-workers, non-intrusive (often 8k miles away) management, good facilities

Cons

Horrific waste of time on-boarding, serious turf wars among management from 2nd level up, odd culture of many contractors/fewer fte's. Management doesn't look very closely at employee interactions - and this becomes a disconnect.

Advice to Management

Concentrate more seriously on great internal tools. Virtulization is the road, but simplify the process for everyone.
