No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Very professional, organized company to work

Cons

The Management that began in Jan 2009 was horrible. Most of the management was downsized in 2012, so maybe the culture has improved.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees when they give advice. Have check and balances in place for management.

    I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pharmaceutical Representative positions usually offer good salaries, decent bonuses and great benefits. Add the freedom & flexibility that comes with working out of your home and it can be a good job.

    Cons

    Novartis is a very conservative organization that often takes too long to react to marketplace changes. They also face significant patent expirations on key products. So inevitably, the first thing a big pharma company does is reduce sales staff. And Novartis recently cut 65% of their U.S. sales force. During my 10 years in pharma, I had to face at least 7 restructuring/layoff scenarios. That is not a fun way to go through your career.


  2. "change and reorganization every year for 6 straight years"
