Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Novartis use to be a great place to work but the culture has changed for the worst. Constant changes, management not supportive and HR non-existent. Pipeline gone and not much promising in near future. Very unethic with customers and their dealings.

Cons

Very unethic with customers and their dealings. Downsizing every 18 months and constant staff changes. No constancty for customers.Pipeline gone and not much promising in near future.

Advice to Management

Fire them all and start over!

    I have been working at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They did their best to look after their employees and stay customer focused in a changing industry.

    Cons

    They constantly changed direction, so much it would make your head spin.

    Advice to Management

    In the end, they treat people like a number, not a person. Don't loose sight of the people that keep the business running.

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

    Pros

    Still a nice company to work for, great benefits (though they are getting worse), mostly nice and well-qualified people

    Cons

    Shaky pipeline, bad decision making by management - remember Famvir? No way they'll find a substitute for Diovan cash cow so it will be one lay-off afer another. The company is going down, hopefully they have enough money in Basel it keep it afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back Kurt Graves and Len Kanavy
