some good people; very distributed and "remote" management
system administrator (Current Employee) – emeryville, ca – 7 January 2014
Novartis in US, in Emeryville specifically, was a fun environment. Well thought out, but badly implemented projects, however, were the norm; communication was totally top down and from afar; co-workers were very nice, informed and smart.
good parties, great co-workers
far away management; duplicity; non-direct communication
I am very honored to be working at Novartis, for me personality it has given me the experience to become a great leader, and use my day to day skills, to constantly grow, The management team encourages you to grow, and takes the time to assist you. There are many courses you can take to exceed at the level you would like to reach. The most enjoyable of the job, is knowing Patients come first.
