Ever changing company with a promising business plan.
Managing Director/Regional Director of Sales (Former Employee), East Hanover, NJMarch 4, 2015
NPC has evolved from a traditional pharma company to a more progressive and streamlined organization through restructures and downsizes. While the business plan is solid, the culture and employee job satisfaction has suffered.

Novartis Review
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 20, 2015
Novartis used to be the # 1 pharma company to work for and had a lot of drugs in their pipeline. After a number of drugs went generic followed by not gaining FDA approval for many drugs, they had to shave the work force dramacially. Great benefits and pay but job security is non-existent.

Novartis is a Great Workplace. The Novartis work environment attracts the best talent, and contributes to support the employee’s optimum performance.
CPO USA QA Complaint Specialist (Current Employee), East Hanover, NJFebruary 13, 2015
Novartis is a Great Workplace. The Novartis work environment attracts the best talent, and contributes to support the employee’s optimum performance. Every day is a nice work routine. Thus, every one works independently but at the same time you find the most cooperative people willing to help you whenever you need.
At Novartis I learned how to be the more secure of myself. I am very proud of been able to bring my knowledge and contribute to the company with my professional experience. I enjoy the opportunity of work with a very nice group of people and an excellent manager who is always supporting us and giving us her confidence. The hardest part is to know that I will be here for short time, not able to grow professionally as much as I wish, but making sure that my path for the company would be valuable.

Onerous Documentation Policies
Project Manager, Information Technology (Former Employee), East Hanover, NJJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: beautiful campus
Cons: overly oppressive and restrictive qa policies
Management apparently has no experience or concept of the volume of documentation that is required for FDA compliance. QA has taken over the documentation policy and has mandated the over documentation of projects. Since there a limited number of FTEs it is not uncommon for a number of consultants to work on a single project over the course of the project life cycle So continuity of documentation may suffer and is a risk. Employee turnover is heavy with many reorganizations. Limited number of FTEs feeling is that the company is being run by contingent work force.

Little guidance from higher up, but overall positive atmosphere
Lab Technician (Current Employee), Larchwood, IAJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: decent entry level pay, lots of overtime
Cons: lots of overtime
Great place to work, if you have no life or family. Early morning and late nights make for good paychecks, but no social life outside the people you talk to at work.
