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

Pros

Great people, excellent benefits, generous paid time off, closed the week of Christmas, excellent opportunities to advance career, tuition reimbursement. I was downsized, but the severance package was extremely generous and sympathetic. I worked there for almost 20 years and had several positions of increasing responsibility, visibility and compensation. When they eliminaed my department I was sad to leave the company, but it was, objectively, a sound business decision. I would work for them again in a heartbeat.

Cons

High expectations and there a a LOT of processes. "Do more with less" culture. All global sites are truly run by Switzerland. I really have nothing bad to say about this company.

    unorganized, poorly written and difficult to follow procedures, management are forced into positions they may not necessarily be qualified for or want. I also thought the manditory monthly GMP trainings were a little much
