"My division was good in terms of values, benefits and compensation as well as being in a challenging work setting. However all of these topics differ heavily from division to division and country to country. Main challenge for the company is cultural differences and communication barriers across the globe. Considering a global company with over 120k employees, I guess, all of this is understandable."

"At Novartis, I was surrounded by people who are very bright and work hard, and felt they were doing meaningful work. For IT, the driving goal was supporting the scientists, not any bottom line, and the atmosphere was truly agile and genuinely collaborative. There was little bureaucracy - if you felt a new technology was the right one was a given task, you were free to argue for and use it. As a result, I was exposed to many new technologies and ideas."

"I've worked at Novartis for over 10 years in the Clinical Development organization. The pipeline is robust, the science is strong, however in the current cost containment age, there are numerous cost cutting measures that have been implemented and have led to significant undermining of talent and expertise. Employees believe in their products and their teams, however, they are broadly over-worked and under-motivated by bean counting. Quality is being sacrificed for short sighted aims - a pity!"
