Empresa com ambiente de trabalho muito saudável e colaborativo.

A empresa se preocupa muito com o bem estar dos funcionários. Os times são muito colaborativos e a liderança incentiva muito esse comportamento. Entretanto, alguns líderes não estão preparados para gerenciar profissionais em um nível mais sênior, atribuindo atividades nada desafiadoras e que não permitem o desenvolvimento do profissional.

Pros

O pacote de benefícios é excelente.

Cons

Há muitas reuniões desnecessárias, assuntos simples que poderiam ser resolvidos com um simples e-mail, são discutidos em reuniões cansativas. Além disso, o processo seletivo não é transparente com relação as atividades a serem executadas.

Opportunity to grow and advance; worked a lot

I was with Novo for almost 5 years. I worked hard, sometimes nights and weekends to meet deadlines. Wish they would have honored work-life balance more but I’ve heard it was better or average compared with other pharma. The upside of hard work is I did advance in a fairly short amount of time and the compensation and benefits were good. If you like pharma.. overall a pretty good company.

Pros

Travel, bonuses

Cons

Unrealistic, uncompromising deadlines

Educator

Great company benefits,Great schedule. Too many field rides but that’s the nature of pharma. A lot of animosity between sales and educators in many territories, however I had great sales teams

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Field rides

Attenzione

Il nuovo management ha pensato di buttar via persone che hanno dedicato vita, sacrifici e tempo all'azienda. Un tempo era una bella realta', ma veramente bella da far invidia a tanti.

Ecart de salaire

T'as beau à avoir des diplômes niveau salaire t'es comme quelqu'un qui est beaucoup moins qualifié que toi. Un pharmacien diplômé est payé comme un CAP qui fréquente des personnes bien placées dans l'entreprise. Pour le même poste et les mêmes missions on constate des écarts de salaire allant jusqu'à 1000€ par mois. Aucune révision n'est envisageable sauf si tu fréquente les bonnes personnes ou tu adhère au bon syndicat. Celà n'impacte pas l'image de l'entreprise parce que ce sont les bonnes personnes et ceux qui les fréquences qui sont sur la façade. Et le budget com est énorme.

Pros

Les responsables danois

Cons

Les critères d'évolution sont ambiguës

Lately it feels like Hunger Games - always feel like restructuring in the near future.

Both the Culture and morale have taken a downward spiral over the last 2 years. They give Impossible goals and there’s always talk of downsizing Managers have been downsized and so you aren’t even reporting to your original manager and the managers are not speaking up about goals, etc because they’re afraid of their job too

Pros

Unlimited time off, but everyone is afraid they will be penalized for using it

Cons

Layoffs, managers are also nervous…overall stress. Morale is terrible

Great benefits and people.

Overall, a great place to work. Communication can lacking. Production has priority over most things. It can be hard to project ideas which would help Production if in a support role.

Great people but too much politics

Great PTO and compensation. Not much opportunity for advancement despite high level of performance. Too many reps/managers politicking, unfortunately the ones who deserve promotions are overlooked most of the times. Culture is not what it used to be,

Pros

Compensation, Pto

Cons

Culture, Career Advancement

The job offers security because the company can not be bought out

Typical work day is like most work days as a pharmaceutical representative. You set your goals and work to execute them on a daily basis. It is gratifying to know that a lot of doctors want your product.

Pros

Free lunches, peers

Cons

little growth for women and miniorities
