drug safety (Former Employee), new jerseyMarch 21, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: low pay, poor management, bullying environment, poor training, unorganized.
This is the worst place i have ever worked. The environment is negative. If you are lucky enough to be with the"in crowd" you'll be ok, if not watch your back. They are back stabbers. They like for people to fail so they look smart. Pretend they are you friends and set you up to fail.

Manager - Database & Marketing Operations (Former Employee), Princeton, NJMarch 13, 2013
Pros: they honestly care about patients & the earth
Cons: hard for women to advance
I worked for Novo Nordisk twice. And would return in a New York minute. I believe in the triple bottom line (the company core values) is the right way to do business. The only area they fall behind is diverse leadership.

Great Benefits, Great Products, all depends on your manager
Sales Specialist (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CADecember 7, 2012
Pros: compensation, benefits
Cons: short sighted management
This is a great company but it all depends on who you manager and regional director is. Our director was more like a tyrant. Its too bad because the company itself has great values

Nothing more than a wolf in sheep's clothing. A tremendous disappointment.
Worker Bee (Former Employee), Princeton, NJ - Home OfficeDecember 2, 2012
Pros: medical/dental/eye benefits, 8%-9% 401k contribution, decent eoy gift
Cons: unqualified mgmt, little knowledge their group's processes, no recognition, unprofessional mgmt, inequitable compensation & promotions not based on performance, knowledge, skills & qualifications, based solely personal relationships w/ reports
The company offers candidates salaries that do not commensurate with candidates' academic and professional experience or skills, and instead focus on the excellent medical/dental/eye benefits, 401k contributions which are higher than industry standards, and its Value system, which includes a commitment to providing an environment where employees can – more... reach their full potential to lure them in. Once inside, those Values are quickly forgotten by some groups, with multiple levels of management actively discouraging the individual development of some direct reports. A recent review said the company was not what it was cracked up to be and that there was a lack of equity. Another reviewer mentioned the company's focus and money spent to make the "best of" lists. Both individuals are 100% accurate. Unfortunately, this company is far too concerned with appearances to make outsiders believe it is the best pharmaceutical company to work for, instead of ensuring that it actually is the best company by continually demonstrating its commitment to these Values so its employees are confident that what is preached is actually what is practiced. Sadly, the company's "Lives the Values" mantra should really be, "Lists the Values" since management in some areas fail to lead by example, and ET/HR either encourage or take no corrective action. – less

Great company in virtually every regard
Biopharmaceutical Sales Manager (Former Employee), Princeton, NJOctober 1, 2012
Pros: compensation, benefits (especially 401k), still less "big pharma' than big pharma
When company was younger there was much autonomy and input from employees. Still that way for the most part but "big pharma" mentality is beginning to pervade - ie, micromanagement, less autonomy, rigid rules, etc

Glad to have moved on
Senior Manager, HR (Former Employee), Princeton, NJMay 16, 2012
Pros: pet insurance
Cons: systemic corruption.
Novo Nordisk spends a lot of money and time working to get on the best places to work lists. They don't spend much on making sure they deserve to be. I have been very fortunate in my career and have had the opportunity to work across industries in some of the largest, most respected companies in the world. Novo Nordisk is not one of them. This is a – more... small company with a small company culture and values. – less
