Pros

Novartis is a good company with good compensation and benefits.

Cons

If you do not work in Oncology, a lot of the benefits seem to disappear and job security becomes an issue.

    I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    . Good company for starting a career . Little perks like company picnic, lunches, etc

    Cons

    A lot of departments understaffed, overworked. Management pointing fingers at one another. Low-morale is evident but managers ill-equipped to handle. Difficult to professionally move around another department unless you are in the higher management level or unless you are within the group's "elite or hip crowd". Seems to foster a spirit of fraternization among managers rather than foster inspiration to future leaders. A lot of talented and efficient employees specially in key areas were let go without extensive consultation or planning. Use to be "honor-system" now, time-in/out clocks.

    Advice to Management

    stop with politicking and retain good and efficient employees.

    such a big company - often the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing

    more communication across divisions
