      Pros

      Private health insurance, private pension, free breakfast,

      Cons

      No transparency. Managers stopped listening. Poor managers. Novo Nordisk Way has faded away. Culture of inclusion, respect to different views turned into a labelling of people. Things that cannot be said clearly to people's face have started being said to behind their back when they leave. It is so sad to see how a great culture shifted in a bad way.
