Clinical Educator (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – October 7, 2018
An excellent company with great benefits. Great work life balance. This company makes you want to give 100%. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet new people and networking both inside and outside of the company
Associate (Current Employee) – Plainsboro, NJ – September 19, 2018
Managers are promoted for who they know, not what they know, and its catching up with NOVO. Everyone covering their own back and no collaboration between departments. Benefits are great, and a shame that leadership and ET are so lacking.
Manager (Current Employee) – Princeton, NJ – October 11, 2018
Good place to work but currently is going through layoffs, restructuring phase. Great benefits and overall good culture. Co-workers are supportive and the perks are good. I walked on eggshells every day feeling I could loose my job
Diabetes Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 3, 2018
Novo is subject to the evolving trends of Pharma. the name of the game is save money and cut sales people. I feel that the current leadership has absolutely no clue how to lead the company nor do they have a plan on how to be successful in the current environment.
QA (Former Employee) – Clayton, NC – August 19, 2018
The company had a lot of benefits. There was always a communication gap between the employees and management. The company didn't seem to care about the employees as much as other companies I worked for.
Poor communnication between employees and management.
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.
"Was" a great place to work but the culture has changed. Inexperienced US leadership across the board. Pricing pressure can significantly hurt Novo as insulin is now a commodity and new products may not get a premium with significant competition. Executives have expensive company cars and fly first class while people below do not get the same benefits. They changed retirement benefits without any grandfather clauses for those who were close to retirement. US employees are not treated the same as their Danish peers.
Fun but very productive in working with Novo Nordisk
Executive Professional Medical Representative (Former Employee) – Philippines – September 11, 2018
In Novo Nordisk a job is never just a job. Going the extra mile. Dedicated workforce in both sales, marketing, medical and regulatory departments. History said that it can be done. Great company to work with. I love the culture in working with the world leader in diabetes. Excellent products. The company does not just focus on financial also social and environmental targets. The company that doesn’t compromise quality and business ethics. A very great company.
Process Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Clayton, NC – April 5, 2018
not a bad place to work. 12.5 hour shifts with short breaks. 30 min unpaid lunch and 2 15 minute paid breaks. you are on your feet the whole time (so get some good shoes) Management is management they care about production which is understandable ( that's their job) the workers are good ( no all of them, you have your lazy ones) the pay is good and the benefits aren't that bad. all in all the company isn't all that bad.
I have been at Novo Nordisk for 7 months and this is by far the best company culture I've ever seen! Everyone is extremely friendly and respectful and I love coming to work every day. We are truly making a difference in our patients' lives and to see that on a daily basis is very rewarding.
Senior Diabetes Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Binghamton, NY – January 28, 2018
Novo nordisk was a culture that I enjoyed working for. Management, team building atmosphere, innovative products and constant growth were wonderful experiences here. I would recommend this company to anyone who wanted to expand their sales experience in the diabetic field.
healthcare, 401K, stock options, company care, great counterparts and company culture
I had to relocate for my husbands work, and I couldn't relocate my postion in Florida.
The role of the Novo Nordisk Diabetes Educator is to provide staff education to health care providers. A typical day consists of a lot of driving, scheduling and providing HCP lunches, delivering education in offices, dropping off educational resources, and collaborating with the sales team. There are a lot of conference calls, training, and administrative work. The hardest part of the job is ascertaining educational needs in an office when you don't know what they know or don't know about diabetes. It takes time and repeat visits to gain trust and to understand what education may be useful. Working at Novo Nordisk is wonderful. The culture is inclusive and the company highly regards personal development The benefits are AMAZING!
My time at Novo Nordisk was very rewarding. The elimination of the role of Instructional Designer was what led to my not being at the company anymore.
I was a consultant with the company for two years prior to becoming a full-time employee. The company has great benefits and was very great about work/life balance. This was very important to me. I could accomplish my work goals and take care of my family.
