Advanced medical representative (Current Employee) – Qalyoubia and Menofia,Egypt – 10 June 2014
Working at Novartis was a challenge, as It was my first time to work in a multinational company and off course in sales. I was former reserve officer in the Egyptian Armed Forces for three years after my graduation, So I toke no time to adapt and productively contribute in my new job and that was a benefit from serving in the army, raising the contribution of institution in my area from 3% to 13.5% and achieving my planned area target and market share, while facing tough competition from generics.I was working on Foradil,Miflonide and xolair(primary care business unit Asthma team.I was learning, building relationships with my team,managers and with healthcare professionals, I was first to introduce Miflonide in MOH hospitals and I still remember the mail from my manager thanking me because of my effort.
A good place to work in that allow employees to dream big.

Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Canada – 19 March 2016
Typical pharma company who believes they are better than all the rest in their competitive therapeutic arena despite bringing nothing of differentiating value compared to the competitors. Senior management has limited knowledge of the market atmosphere and possesses poor relationships with KOLs. People managers lack ability to stray from corporate direction and are simply the mouthpiece for corporate decisions. Marketing department is exceptionally slow to bring new ideas and marketing materials to the forefront and are generally reacting to market changes rather than having any proactive foresight.
You never knew what your day was going to be when you walked in the door every morning. The hardest part of the job was that you never knew if you would have a job next month due to frequent lay offs. So everyone would try to take on more and more responsibility to try to avoid the next round of lay offs. It affected the morale of the company. Great co-workers and great team atmosphere.
