Great team environment with people who are proactively willing to help. It really seems that everyone enjoys being here.
Would like to be made permanent. That's the only reason that I didn't give it five stars.

Really has it all together. From the initial interviews to hiring and the on boarding process. The benefits are the best I've seen or had in my 25 years of working. Employees are truly glad to be there and make a difference in people's lives.
I have zero cons to write about! Maybe my own, that I wished I applied here years ago!
Advice to Management
Great job with orientation! I really felt it was all delegated with just enough information to keep questions down to a minimum. Excellent format!

Flexibility and culture. Lots of work keeps you busy. The benefits are great and if you work for the right manager flexibility is great.
commute sometimes too busy and you can get overwhelmed - hiring freeze does not help. The flexibility should be company wide - and managers should lead by example.

Very good company! I love the culture and the opportunity for advancement.
Site is too far from home
Novartis is a company that still puts employees first. Compared to other health/pharma corporations, it is ahead in keeping longevity and tenure due to many benefits, competitive salary, work life balance and work from home opportunities. Summer programs and health offices on site, Restaurants, credit union, multiple gyms. Great place to work! Culture is definitely one of its kind.Oncology in specific is a great place to advance if you are not an Admin. 80% of the people I work with have moved up in the company on an average of every 2-3 years.
There are not many development opportunities for Administrative Assistant who want to evolve. Workstream is also inconsistent within admins across the company.
Great working environment, friendly co-workers, lots of perks.
None cons as of yet.
