    I have been working at Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of vacation time, Awesome 401K plan. Onsite gym, nurse, and even a part time doctor.

    Cons

    Techs spend most of their time being operators. Annual pay increases don't keep up with inflation. Management is obsessed with lean management schemes (their version is called cLean), but doesn't really implement any of it the way it's done in Japan. That would mean giving more authority to techs and operators, and dumping some of the incompetent middle management and that's not going to happen. There are advancement opportunities but they are few and far between. During expansion most of the good new openings are given to new hires. Don't expect any help from management with the promotion process. Helping people grow is supposed to be one of the planks of the company philosophy "The Novo Nordisk Way", but it doesn't seem to have trickled down to Clayton, at least not on the hourly side.

    Advice to Management

    The cLean department is way too fat. You can't replace experience and know how with SOP's and down time boards.


  2. "Very good people"
