Featured Review

Current Contractor - Project Manager

I have been working at Novo Nordisk for less than a year

Pros

Great products, really care about employees - contractors are treated exactly the same as permies, great benefits, has a culture that really focuses on healthy living, social activities and lots of... sporty things going on to get involved with. At Gatwick office, gym, free breakfast and lunch

Cons

Because it's a great company to work for, staff turnover is low, so permanent jobs don't come up often. Gatwick location is a bit grim, albeit convenient for road, rail and air travel.

"Excellent"3 Apr 2020

Former Contractor - Talent Acquisition Partner

I worked at AstraZeneca for less than a year

Pros

Professionalism, technology, communication, honesty and overall excellent company that you should take up the opportunity to join without any hesitation.

Cons

Not much, it is a busy working environment but otherwise not many Con's to highlight.

Advice to Management

Continue to do what you are doing, great company and excellent management. Approachable, professional and excellent communication.
