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

    Pros

    The compensation is excellent, benefits are good, many smart people working there. It really helps if you're Danish

    Cons

    In my personal experience they all too frequently hire individuals who routinely flout what are touted as core company principles. Those who speak out about this then get to confront the same HR personnel who made the dubious hiring decision(s) in the first place. Turnover is therefore high even by Pharma standards.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror.

    I worked at Novo Nordisk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I first started there, when Martin Soeters was President, it was fantastic. I completely fed into company culture hype and, at the time, it was a great place to work. When Jurek took over though, things changed. Your experience there will depend greatly on your manager and your department. It is highly competitive now... probably because of the "best places to work" designation. So, if you are not the type to knock your coworkers down and climb over their backs to get ahead, this is probably not the place for you.

    Salaries are also considerably lower than industry standards.

    Cons

    HR spends a ton of money to be listed as one of the Best Places to Work, but doesn't necessarily make sure they deserve to be there.
