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

Pros

Tremendous scope for movement & development. Great products across a broad range of healthcare solutions. Big, international projects with real impact.

Cons

Mismatched expectations across international teams. Inconsistent management quality across functions & divisions. There are different cultural norms for work/life balance depending on site & business unit. Compensation is middle of the road for most roles/functions.

Advice to Management

Create greater consistency in culture across divisions & sites. There's still greater tribal/functional identity than there is "One Novartis" - which impacts overall quality initiatives and performance.
