Good company
Consulting Dietitian (Former Employee), montreal, QcNovember 5, 2014
I only worked for Novartis for a short period and only on a contractual basis .

I think it is a good company to work for and everyone I came in contact with was always professional.

Good Pay to compensate for
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Charlottetown, PEJune 30, 2014
Pros: excellent pay and benefits
Cons: long hours, no training, little support.
- Typical work week was 60+ hours with no paid overtime.
- Training for new staff non-existent, often directed to "find the written process online"
- Staff is unwelcoming to new employees.
- All staff events centered on alcohol related activities.
- Unrealistic expectations from Management - ie called in when sick, or on vacation because of short staffing – more... and no cross training.
- Overall atmosphere of unease and anxiety caused by poor management of people and resources.
- HR and Management (with the exception of HSE team) dismissive about staff concerns when they were identified. (ie - staff were placed on probation or dismissed if they raised concerns about work/life balance or questionable processes) – less

Waaay too much politics
Labeling Regulatory Associate Manager (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONOctober 3, 2013
Much too much politics, causes a toxic and non-productive environment. They're small and they could be great with the right people, but I don't see it happening.

Regulatory Affairs Manager (Current Employee), Mississauga, OntarioAugust 5, 2013
Pros: excellent local and international teams to work with.
Cons: long hours of commuting to work daily
A typical work day is full of fun with early morning teleconferences with colleagues in Europe (6 hrs behind Europe). This is followed by departmental, projects and products meetings. As part of the management team, strategic planning sessions would commence after the meetings. Regulatory Agencies' meetings to discuss ongoing submissions would follow.

Company went downhill with changes
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYNovember 20, 2014
A once dynamic work environment drastically changed alongside the pharma industry the past 5-10 years. Numerous cuts to field sales forces and development programs. Loss of primary care products to blame. Specialty (Oncology) has a bright future and is the place to be within company.

Great place to work for the 24 years I was there.
Executive Territory Mgr (Former Employee), San Diego, CANovember 19, 2014
Sadly, It really doesn't matter too much how they were, since Novartis Corp. sold the entire global assets of the Animal Health Division to Elanco Animal Health. Subsequent to that, Sentinel, their flagship antiparasitic product was again sold to Virbac Corp. due to U.S Govt. Antitrust regulations.
the transactions become effective December 1, 2014 – more... and Novartis Animal Health will cease to exist. – less

Team Member/Team Leader (Former Employee), Lincoln, NENovember 18, 2014
First shift kicks off at 6:30am. All of us fall into place and have our own responsibilities. Break @ 9am.....then lunch around 12:00. Loud noise on the theraflu line.l You better have ear plugs. It's great when the machines run as expected. We fly right through an order. At the end of the shop order we recap and get ready for the next run of Theraflu.
