Manager (Former Employee) – Wilson, NC – August 1, 2018
I worked at Sandoz a few years ago in an executive level position. It was a cut throat culture. Out of the four Pharma companies that I have worked for in my career, this was easily the worst company for career advancement and an overall toxic culture. Most of the folks in functional groups that I had daily relationships with have left the company for more rewarding positions. It's a real shame as well. The company could be great for professional and personal career development if it changed the culture. Finally, in the four years I was there, they hired and fired 3 HR Directors. That speaks for itself.

Constant panic stations and a general lack of alignment. Make more but don't make mistakes. Take it easy but make your numbers. Managers need to stop taking themselves so seriously and start developing teams.
Worst Manager ever-old school, suppose to be a Specialty Mgr was more of a Primary Care Mgr
Sandoz-bad data set, tried to get contract off the ground but doomed, Management was very stringent on numbers & not realisitic when their sister company reps call averages were so vastly different than our call goals
Unfair balalnce of work load by DM creating unfair boundaries for reps
Retail Sales Representative (Former Employee) – East Hanover, NJ – October 3, 2017
Typical work day 8-5. Had a great boss who lived in Ohio. Only saw him Quarterly. I learned a lot about Drugs. Lots of training classes. HHQ responsibility. Very laid back. My boss was very supportive, allowed me to do my job my way. Hardest part of the job was going to an appointment and getting to talk to the person you needed to talk to. Not just leaving samples. Being rewarded for your hard work.
Senior Medical Manager (Former Employee) – Distrito Federal – September 5, 2017
Compliance guided all activities in the Company. Well oriented, wonderful directors committee, kindly employees, challenge work, lot of opportunities. One of the most enjoyable place to work inside Novartis.
Fun, easy office management job. Get very repetitive. Every day is usually the same. The clients are great, and easy to work with. Great manager who is always willing to help if needed, but prefers you to be independent and self efficient.
