Very poor leadership
Executive Director, Technology (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMarch 23, 2017
Leadership has no vision, no strategy, make decisions based on perceptions and not facts. Culture is very poor, employee engagement at its lowest I have seen in 7 years.

A maze of wonders
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMarch 23, 2017
Information that was vital to know was presented at the last minute before it was in effect. Throughout the day improvisational skills had to be used to get over the waves of inconveniences and collaborate to make things steady. Management could use more communication training to align a functional environment for the employees. Some days where smooth when all those key elements where executed by a percentage in the work place.

Review of Novartis
Senior Institutional Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  East Hanover, NJMarch 17, 2017
Novartis was a great company with market-leading products. I always felt there were areas for me to advance, until several products didn't get approved. My sales managers were always great and the teams I was aligned with were strong. We all wanted to win and worked toward the same goal.
Pros
Great products
Cons
Patent losses, products taken off market

This was a great company to work with. I was allowed to do other tasks that were not part of my job that interested me. You need to be adaptable to change.

Awesome company
Team Member Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMarch 1, 2017
Being a pharmaceutical manufacturer, they seemed to have money falling out of their pockets. All of the employees were paid well with excellent benefits. Supervisors did not hover over and monitor what everyone was doing because everyone was always doing their jobs. I guess that's what you get when you pay your employees well.

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 27, 2017
Novartis is always coming out with new products which allows its sales force to constantly engage in launch mode. Large company with nice benefits. Management constantly changes so it takes getting use to.

Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  East Hanover, NJFebruary 24, 2017
Novartis is a huge corporation with many faces and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. There may be disconnect among functions but that's expected at most companies. Their pay could be better and advancement is usually the reason people move on to other companies. Diversity is great.

TERRITORY SALES CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVFebruary 23, 2017
Long days and evening work, but the field is growing and the coworkers are fun.

An entry level pharmaceutical sales representative works for a drug manufacturer. She provides information and marketing materials about the company's medications to doctors, increasing awareness about the products. The work is challenging and competitive, but provides an important service in the health care field.

Average place to work
SCIENTIST - IN-VIVO GLAUCOMA RESEARCH (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXFebruary 22, 2017
It was a great place to work, until a few years ago. It seemed that productivity, innovation and quality has suffered substantially. In fact if you talk with our longtime customers, you'll have the consensus that Alcon is no longer the go-to company for eye care products.
Pros
Not a bad place to work
Cons
Quality for the most part has suffered
