    I worked at Novartis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good challenging competitive environment, which helps you learn a lot. Very good at creating leaders.

    Cons

    Can be a bit biased sometimes, very stressful. should pay more attention to feedback from employees. should stick more to their values and avoid compliance issues.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to feedback from employees as the is what helps any organisation to develop. try to develop employees more efficiently instead of just trainings and courses. Tailor training per each employees needs and areas of weakness, as it is not very productive to have a standard training matrix and schedule for all employees.
