Productive and Fun Work Place

A typical day at Novartis is just doing your job as everyday you will be doing the same things like collecting samples, taking the samples and measuring them.

Team based environment, barely get to interact with other teams

Managers are not transparent in their target setting Feedback from staffs to HR were not translated into action as HR is relatively powerless Pay package is competitive vs market

Good work life balance

Nice working environment. Good compensation package. as MNC, the job stability is an issue especially for the R&D sector. However, it is a good working experience.

Serious, Finite Resources, Process driven

I enjoyed my time at NVS, despite the many challenges. I learnt a great deal and made some wonderful friends. NVS was a career milestone in many ways.

Best place to learn things.

It would assure one to be better in all aspects when you pursue interest outside the company, such would be in work and people. It takes out the best in you. It would be a place so difficult to part from.

Productive workplace

Typical day at work usually involved by gaining additional knowledge regarding pharmaceutical companies and productions. I have learned how to produce tablets and how to measure the quality of the tablets using various ways. The management is good and the workplace culture is positively good. The most enjoyable part of the job is to manage the quality of the tablets.


Free lunches

Learnt many things here

I was attached to Novartis for my internship. I learnt many things over there with regards to quality assurance and operations. The management team was very approachable and friendly. They were always there to hold your hand when you needed help and they imparted the necessary skills in me for me to do my job as an intern effectively.

Working environment

Excellent and friendly working environment. Very helpful and easy to learn and cope. Good work life balance making working life less stressful. Although there is only one canteen, the food is relatively good and cheap.

learning and development was good

Result driven, collaborative and importance given to values and behaviours while achieving objectives . Leadership , coaching and talent development is given importance D&I is part of hiring and work culture Poor Managers with no respect for Ethics, Novartis Values behaviours in newly created divisions. Change management can be improved further
