Safety and quality are always of paramount importance. There are very exciting training opportunities provided by Novartis. Overall they are an excellent company to work for."
"I've worked for Novartis Vaccines for almost a year and a half now. I joined the company in interesting times when they announced the company was for sale. Now, the company is sold to GSK and the company is gradually transitioning. I've had a great experience working for this company and with everyone here. This company indulges in good science and practices ethics in research. I would recommend applying to the new Novartis Vaccines (GSK vaccines) as the company might change but the people will not."
"I have been a loyal, dedicated employee for Novartis Pharmaceuticals for over 19 years."
"I worked as clinical data manager in oncology at Novartis."
"Good place to work however, the IT staff is outsource."
"I have contributed to the TPM solution for UK Market."
"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."
"Great company to work for."
"For almost eight (8) years working as a Desktop/Laboratory IT Support at Novartis Institutes of BioMedical Research, Inc. in Cambridge, my responsibilities included purchasing, designing, setting-up and testing to make sure all system is working properly including PC Workstations, PC standards and laptops for entire Cambridge facility."
"Good location, nice place to work."
"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."
"Overall great company with great benefits. The downside very low opportunity for advancement once you're employed."
"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!"
