I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Full scale of career opportunities, support at district and corporate level to field are good as long as your manager supports.

Cons

Manager changes seem more frequent and each manager has own agenda and process. Once everyone is on same page then a new manager.

Advice to Management

Corporate level directors with 18-24 month contracts and goals cloud longer term vision at field level.

    Shame on you, for sending all the development jobs over to China and laying off thousands of professionals in the US. I hope it comes back to bite you.
