Reorganization of company structure. I really enjoy the position.
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.
Many great things at Novo Nordisk, but collaboration with peers one of the best.

Decline in company culture
EXECUTIVE INSTITUTIONAL DIABETES CARE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  OklahomaSeptember 29, 2018
10 years ago the company had a great culture. Not so much now. Once a great company but have lost their way.... I wish they could work to help the patient. They have lost their mission for the patient.

Management needs revamp
Associate (Current Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJSeptember 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.
Pros
Flexible work life balance
Cons
Management not great

Fun but very productive in working with Novo Nordisk
Executive Professional Medical Representative (Former Employee) –  PhilippinesSeptember 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.
Pros
Travels, incentives trainings
Cons

Used to be the place to be
Diabetes Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PASeptember 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.
Pros
good benefits and people
Cons
poor leadership, no opportunity

The NN way only applies to certain levels, not to upper management
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJAugust 24, 2018
A company that is extremely fearful of taking risks. They strongly promote the Novo Nordisk Way which insists on respectful interactions, etc. Meanwhile, upper levels of management definitely do not follow the NN way. They seem to have lost their way and are flailing around looking for how to regain their share and status.

Good place to work if you like to work for a cartel
Validation Lead Quality and IT Audit (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJAugust 5, 2018
The worst company I ever worked for! This company is very lucky, it has great product line and enjoying a therapeutic area which does not have much of competition. The company has great profit margin and making money hand over fist.

The management is obnoxious and arrogant. Zero value for talent and managers don't even think once before rewarding their favorites for the hard work done by those who are not in their inner circle.

It is run as a cartel, if you are in you will enjoy upward movement and all perks without having any talent, otherwise tough luck. Many employees especially hard workers (work bees) are kept at the same position for many years and are told they need to do better to be promoted. If you are talented stay away from this company it is not for you.
Pros
Highly profitable
Cons
Incompetent and obnoxious managment
