Peu de tâches et on doit toujours se faire vérifier

Si on a envie de prendre son temps et presque rien faire c'est une bonne place. Il faut pas oublier que tout doit être vérifier et donc on doit attendre constamment après les collèges pour qu'ils signent. Beaucoup de règlements et on doit constamment se justifier. C'est un bon premier travail pour quelqu'un qui sort de l'école, mais je vois pas vraiment d'avancement

Pros

Cafétéria sur place, bonne assurance, café gratuit, travail tranquille vu qu'on a 8 heures pour faire une tache

Cons

Ambiance de compétition entre les gens de jours et de soirs, on doit toujours attendre après les autres, très surveiller et aucune latitude permise

I got bullied by the director on a weekly basis, in front of my colleagues. There is gossip, favoritism and a lot of micromanagement as well.

Typical day was taking calls, answering emails, doing follow-ups, entering new patients, meetings and reports.I hated my job because I was promised a supervisor who didn't supervise and instead referred to me for questions. I was not recognized for my effort. Finishing the day 1-3 hours past my normal work hours was considered "normal".

Pros

Work from home. That's about it.

Cons

Toxic upper management, Micromanagement, Too many hours (not fairly compensated), Not much work culture since COVID, Favoritism and gossip

Good

I learned a lot working at this company. I recommend to take this experience if you dream to work in pharmaceutical industry. Because working in CRO and pharmaceutical company is two different things.

Great company

My best days were in Novartis. It is a great company that has a lot of growth opportunity. Salary and benefits are great.Performance evaluation process is not good. Talent review is subjective. Overall I was happy there.

Novartis was a good place to work as a sales rep.

Novartis was a good place to work. Immediate managers for the most part were excellent. Downsizing was to frequent, and the job security and sales force motivation was negatively affected.

Bon entreprise, recomandable

Bon rémunération, des bonnes avantages sociales. Le Bmol de l'entreprise est la pression sur les employés, l'attitude négative du département de RH, la culture malsainte de la part de ceux qui gèrent les employés. Le ritm de travail et le stress est vraiment au delas de l'imagination, mais j'ai beaucoup appris , professionnellement ! Profss
