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

    Pros

    Good job stability.
    Great Benefits.
    Competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Challenging site culture.
    High turnover amongst hourly operators and salaried personnel.
    Lots of non-technical decision makers/influencers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on master-planning and driving towards future vision. Site leadership gets involved in far too many fire-fighting issues preventing forward thinking.

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

    Pros

    Hard working staff. The overall NVS benefits are good if you can survive the revolving door that is Sandoz. The A players are leaving rapidly or being forced out when they question any directive from the CEO.

    Cons

    Unethical pricing practices spearheaded by the NA CEO coupled with an overall lack of respect and trust by customers and employees alike for senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Perrigo has already been hit; Sandoz should be next and rightfully so with the unethical actions of its CEO.
