Thoroughly enjoyed working as a pharmaceutical sales representative for Novartis. Was with the company for 14 years.
Executive Neuroscience Specialist (Former Employee), New JerseySeptember 25, 2014
A typical day would include analyzing data to determine market trends and physician prescribing habits, preparing my call schedule, pre-call planning, clinical presentations to physicians and post call planning. My position also required developing thought leaders to be speakers, planning speaking events and conducting breakfast or lunch programs with – more... physicians. My managers over the years have taught me so much about sales. The hardest part of the job was getting products on formulary at the teaching institutions. The most enjoyable was seeing the results of my hard work. – less

Psychiatry Account Management - West Region Lead (Former Employee), East Hanover, NJAugust 25, 2014
Pros: developement opportunities for top performers
Cons: job security is tenuous
You will succeed at Novartis by being a Top Performer.
Performance is the driver in this organization that is very controlled by the Swiss.
It is an impersonal organization from a senior leadership level, but at local management the culture is supportive.
This company is going through a lot of change and reorganization and is more about the Share price – more... than their people. – less
