Constantly Restructuring
Senior Diabetes Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 12, 2018
Novo Nordisk was once a great company to work for several years ago, but recently has gone through three years of restructuring with no end in sight. Very low growth opportunity.

That being said, the company has good benefits and solid products. If they are able to "right size" themselves and finally settle in, things should get better.
Pros
Benefits, Bonus
Cons
Layoffs, Poor Executive Team

Stay Away from Manufacturing
Filling Technician (Former Employee) –  Clayton, NCNovember 10, 2018
I cannot speak for office/specialist positions, but if you are an intuitive and ambitious person that is going in at a floor level position, then be mentally prepared to be lulled to death. They are managed very poorly and have gone downhill over the past 5 years. It went from being a great place to go into to now a very toxic environment. They do not pay well at all compared to the triangle and do this because of the location. They know that Johnston County doesn't have much else to offer so they don't mind negotiating packaging, filling, or even core techs as low as 14/hr to work for them. The progression is also non-existant unless you are willing to compromise on integrity and make friends with those who have influence.

Good place to work
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  CopenhagenOctober 27, 2018
It's a good place to work as company has sharp focus on solving chronic diseases like Diabetes, Obesity and other chronic diseases. Company dna with regards culture is quite strong across the globe. Sound Executive leadership in the organisation currently focussed on taking the steps to steer into future. Good time to be part of the company.

Novo is a great place to work, some departments travel much more than others. Great benefits. They do promote based on tenure vs experience or skill set.

Good company, hard to advance
Diabetes Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Westchester County, NYOctober 18, 2018
Good company, there are a lot of changes going on at Novo and the bonus structure is never transparent but overall I’ve been happy here. A lot of great products have been launched recently, so it is a very competitive and fun selling environment.

Very busy position.
Training Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJOctober 16, 2018
Worked with great, hardworking people. Each day was different depending the level of sales rep training. Management was open to suggestions. There really wasn't a "hardest part" of the job, it was all very challenging and required attention to detail. Most enjoyable part was my co-workers, great people!
Pros
Excellent working conditions.
Cons
Building was always cold in winter.

Senior Diabetes Educator (Current Employee) –  Florida State, FLOctober 9, 2018
Excellent place to work. By far, my favorite job in my career. The only reason I may be leaving is reorganization and may be displaced.
