I have been working at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Driven colleagues, career and personal development opportunities, meritocracy (at least in some divisions)

Cons

Former culture of prejudice based on pedigree and old habits die hard

Advice to Management

Stack ranking-esque review process can be demoralizing. Group heads should speak to associates about their managers more often. "Anonymous" 360 reviews are poor ways to learn about middle managers. Associates are not comfortable criticizing managers for fear of retribution.
