I have been working at Novartis full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The culture is quick to assess talent and provide opportunities. If you are driven and able to deliver real results, this is the place for you.

The culture is truly driven by a 50% weighting on performance and 50% on values and behaviors. It matters how you perform, but it also matters how you achieved those results. If you exhibit leadership traits, work well in cross functional teams and set a performance standard for the company, you will be rewarded.

Cons

The performance driven culture that is a benefit to some can also be challenging to others. If you are looking for long term career stability to "do the same thing for many years", you may be considered a hindrance to someone who may need your position as a stepping stone to the next level. High performers will always be rewarded and offered promotions, mediocrity and low performance will be frowned upon.

    I worked at Novartis as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great atmosphere. managers are really helpful as are the members that are within your team. great place to do a co-op.

    Cons

    Salary was not as great as what I was expecting.

    also, having people picket outside the workplace is strange.
