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.

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

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.

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.

bad company culture though they desperately tried to salvage the situation. low morale, not engaged and motivated at work. feels like everyone just wants to get over and done with their job to go home everyday.

poor management. decision making process is too long due to indecisiveness and nobody dares to take responsibility. promote the undeserving people. no career progression.
Pros
none
Cons
poor management, bad company culture, no career progression

It has an engaging, relaxed atmosphere, where during lunch hours you can choose to relax over a game of pool, foosball or table tennis. However, some departments seem particularly busy and there should be more cooperativeness amongst different departments to ensure that effective work is in place
Pros
Pool Table, Foosball, Table Tennis
Cons
Workplace Location is far
