    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Plainsboro, NJ (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was very detailed and well executed. Following a phone screening round with HR, there were 2 rounds of in-person interview across a period of 2 weeks. The first round was scheduled for 2 hours, which included interview questions from the team member (30 mins), hiring manager (1 hour) and HR (30 minutes). Second and final round of interview (2 hours, 30 minutes) was more deep-dive with the senior management and leadership within the department. I had to present a business case study with 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 10-15 minutes of Q & A. The next segment of the interview was scheduled for 30 minutes each with the senior leadership and vice president of the organization; final round was again with the hiring manager.

    Phone interview then face to face. Waiting for the phone call to schedule the interview took weeks because managers were not available. It's a great company to work for. The culture is amazing and so are the benefits.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk (Princeton, NJ (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Know all of your basic behavioral interview questions. Follow the STAR method: What was the situation (background), what was your task (role, requirements), what actions did you take, and what were the results. They like quantifiable results if possible.

    The people at Novo are very smart and mostly friendly. The different therapeutic areas tend to be pretty siloed--so if you work in Diabetes, you won't see much of Biopharm and vice versa. The building is small and space is extremely limited, but Novo is moving to a much larger office in 2013. Benefits are best in class. Free water bottles/diet soda. Jeans casual on Fridays, summer Fridays between Memorial and Labor Day. $1 BBQ on summer Thursdays. Various employee recognition events. Plenty of parking, bathrooms are always clean, but kitchen space is very limited (again, new building soon).

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to challenge the actions of someone on your team.   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time you had to complete a complex task under a tight deadline.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No room for negotiation, they rate your salary based on your experience level.
