    I have been working at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are going to work for big pharma, this is the place to be. NIBR has managed to maintain an innovative and collaborative culture separate from the "business" side of the Novartis family.

    Cons

    It has expanded very rapidly over the last 10 years and encountered some hickups on the way. Red tape is unavoidable within an organization this size but this has improved lately.


  2. "Benefits and compensation not competitive"

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

    Pros

    Smart talented people to work with.

    Cons

    A large portion of staff on-site is on longer term contract. The pay and benefits are not competitive with the rest of the area, especially for a large company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire FTE instead of hiring temps.
