    I worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary & benefits OK, but not keeping pace with industry. Continuous downsizing.

    Cons

    Jobs being shed and outsourced, but individual responsibilities continuously increased. Non-technical managers making bad technical decisions. No accountability at top. Weak management of offshore vendors. You are a commodity and constantly reminded of it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop covering up your mistakes. Admit them, learn from them and improve you processes. Let the technical folks (who have hands-on experience) weigh in for better decision support.

    They move you around to different territories and change products on you yearly
    Promotional opportunities are not there. This is a shrinking industry and manager jobs are few and far between.
    Sales goals are usually out of reach, and the pressure to attain them is always there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reps in the same territories to foster relationships and have attainable goals.
