Manager, Internal Communications (Former Employee) – East Hanover, NJ – July 24, 2017
The Corporate culture at Novartis when I was there was in its development stage, having evolved from a merger of two separate companies into Novartis. There was a definite European aspect to the culture, but it was energetic and positive.

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.
Company with good HSE culture and good manufacturing practices along with others beneficts.At this moment the company is in a close operation period so many of us are in the process to get job opportunities outside the company.
Senior Institutional Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – East Hanover, NJ – March 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.

Control Analyst (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 4, 2017
Largescale and ongoing upheaval and changes. Many levels of management and compliance. Not much interaction between departments. There is a very good and sophisticated accounting manual and controls matrix.
Team Member Specialist (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – March 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, IL – February 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, NJ – February 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.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – February 23, 2017
Great company and worked with some great individuals who really love their jobs. Hiring process is awful and as someone who was in management it was a huge headache when trying to train let alone work with the individuals sent to our site.

The work is challenging and competitive, but provides an important service in the health care field.
SCIENTIST - IN-VIVO GLAUCOMA RESEARCH (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – February 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.
