    If you are a hard worker who is seeking a promising future and a good career path then Novartis is the place. If you are seeking a dynamic culture where your learning and development never ends, then Novartis it is.

    Cons

    You have to be able to work under stress..seriously. To have a sense of urgency because Novartis is know to be a stressful culture and works with very tight deadlines most of the time. You have to get a strong CNS to survive. LOL

    A good company to work and to be associated. Its employee freindly and shows nice transparency with a good HR team. its market image is really strong and positive.
