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

    Pros

    used to be benefits, but not any longer

    Cons

    micro management, lack of SOPs and process guidance. No integrity in the drug development process. Individual departments work like a CRO, trying to please their customers while violating SOPs, FDA guidelines and ICH.

    Advice to Management

    make a decision are you a pharma company or a health care company..

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

    Pros

    Great salary + bonus and benefits package. Nice onsite facilities - multiple decent cafeterias, full service fitness centers, pleasant modern office spaces (even nice cubicle setups).

    Cons

    In IT and other technical areas, very heavy use of outsourcing to clueless offshore companies and also work shifting to India office. Extreme levels of bureaucracy, resulting in projects and technology moving at a glacial pace. Frequent high-level reorgs and layoffs.
