Great place to develop your skills
Project Associate & Sales Execution Associate (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJNovember 21, 2016
This company operates differently than other places. Allows a lot of flexibility and also has great benefits. I have learned more about taking initiative and being solution oriented than I ever thought I could in a job. Every day my role was to make others around me better by offering innovative solutions to complex issues. From Field engagement to synthesizing complex numerical issues, there is always a solution to be found that benefits the end user; our field sales teams.
Pros
Outstanding benefits, amazing pipeline of products

Depends on what you do
Process Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Clayton, NCOctober 31, 2016
Novo Nordisk is either amazing to work for or a struggle depending on your mindset, your manager and shift. You won't learn much coming here technical wise but you will pick up clean room, lean manufacturing, and GMP skills. Hardest part of your job is not being able to do something due to a regulation that wouldn't restrict you at another job.
Pros
Benefits and environment are both very good.
Cons
Advancement is slow and job can be slow as well for high qualified people.

Learning workplace
PC Technician (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCNovember 16, 2016
I have learn a lot of new ways on how to fix something. I got to see Skype issues, emails problems with outlook on profiles, work with AD with reset password, adding info to their account. Setup new IPhone for clients also installing Air watch which works with emails on their phones. Also made notes on a lot of issues so in case I saw them again I would be able to fix it faster. Also learned about the Remedy ticket system.

Lost the small pharma feel and made poor executive decisions
Territory Representative (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 16, 2016
Zero job security and a very poor outlook. Second round of layoffs due to poor executive decisions is imminent. My territory was eliminated and I have customers calling me wanting to know when someone is coming. They had no plan in place to take care of their customers after making cuts to representatives.

process maintenance technician (Current Employee) –  Clayton, NCJuly 13, 2016
Management did not see eye to eye on a lot of topics, political company. Good co-workers, good pay and benefits were unbeatable. Very fast paced machinery but when it broke down management cared about documenting troubleshooting diagrams rather than fixing machines quicker.
