    I have been working at Novo Nordisk full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive management
    Well structured role
    Great benefits - pension, car, gym, free breakfast and lunch, social events

    Cons

    Premium priced products makes it a tough sell to struggling NHS.
    Flexible working policy variable across the business and dependent on who your boss is.
    Limited opportunity for promotion.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Novo Nordisk in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for a position through TalentDesk.com for another company. I received an email from a third party
    whether I wished to conduct an online Yahoo IM interview with Jeff Frazier; as they were happy with my resume.

    I proceeded with the interview and was offered the position after consulting with some managers . The interview took about 1.15 hour to complete. I haven't received any confirmation in writing and haven't been able to find reviews on employees that work from home . I'm looking forward to seeing how it pans out!

    Negotiation

    No negotiations were needed , I was happy with what was offered
