    I have been working at Novo Nordisk full-time

    Pros

    Since 1923, Novo Nordisk has been working tirelessly on improving the condition and status of people living with diabetes all around the world. Its Danish roots make it a fantastic place to work where personal and professional development is encouraged, strenghts are fostered and all employees share the same mission. Having been in at least three countries with Novo Nordisk, the same culture can be found throughout.

    Cons

    Like all pharmas, some processes and the culture of consensus building can slow things down. Overall, few cons .
