Arrivé durant un plan social global, mon expérience a globalement été entachée par ce point. Une ambiance globalement dure a est apparue et ne m'a pas permis d'apprécier complètement ce stage. Les missions étaient intéressantes et complètes, la relation avec mon responsable se passait globalement bien, en dehors de moments de stress importants.
Pros
Culture de l'entreprise, avantages en nature
Cons
Contexte social

Sinnloser und nutzloser Restrukturierungsaktivismus, der alle Jahre wieder kommt. Mit jedem neuen Chef beginnt eine neue Übung, die nichts bringt ausser Verunsicherung beim Personal.
Pros
gute Bezahlung.
Cons
Ständige Angst, den Boden unter den Füssen zu verlieren.

Novartis offers packages that virtually no competitor can match. Salaries and benefits are excellent, the work place is great on the Basel Campus, work-life balance programs are excellent. On the downside, the organization keeps changing, people get fired without notice, priorities evolve very fast and you have no time to adapt.
Pros
restautants, fitness, flextime, salary, shares
Cons
management, strategy, pressure, stress

Great place to work a build a career. Good benefits. On a typical day, I arrive around 8 to 8:30am in the office, go through my emails answering them timely and prioritizing. Extensive calendar management, as well people management, budget control, PO management, attend to meetings. The team is great which plays an important part on the day by day work.

As an external person you can forget about any benefits, bonus.. In so big company evertyhing depends on a place where are you, you have better and worse departments. My job is not really stressful and the campus is really nice.

This company was great in the past. I am working here since more than 10 years, and as trainer I have a good overview of the company and its departments. I am simply shocked how this company changed within the last years. Novartis externalize all services to save money. Very US driven, not at all a Swiss culter company anymore. They don‘t care about you, only about your performance. The managers are poorly trained and only interested into their carreer plans. Completely lost in conflict management. Communication is poor and there is a difference for internals and externals too. Externals are treated very bad. No benefits, no gifts, no paid vacation, they pay more in the cantine, not allowed to use the gym, not allowed to participate into training sessions, the welcome day is 1 hour! For internals 1.5 days. You are there to work and that‘s it. Your contract is extended at the very last day, maybe with less money (kate it or we call the next one culture) The colleagues are mostly great. Just due to the working hours they do not integrated into the Swiss life at all. They know nothing about Basel, the culture and how we use to treat each other. They hide on campus and complain that Switerland is too expensive so they all go to shop in DE or FR. They do not understand that the system only functions if we do not only take profit out of everything. But as the company only looks at their advantages, I do not wonder that the employees do the same. Culture here is American and all Swiss aspects are lost. Sad but I would not recommend anybody to work for this - more...
Pros
Internals have all benefits and higher salary for the same job
Cons
Externals are treated bad here, earn less and feel like „working bees“

Es wahr ein Tolles unternehmen. Aber mit der Zeit wurde vieles geändert und man war nur eine Nr im Geschäft. Keine Wertschätzung und streit unter denn Kollegen, jeder hat verschuckt denn anderen ins falsche Licht zu setzten. Die Firma ist nicht mer das was es einmal war. In der JAhren hat sich vieles verändert leider aber zum Negativen.
Pros
Gute Zusatsleistungen
Cons
Die obere Etape ist nur noch auf Profit aus und die Arbeiter sind nur noch Zahlen für sie

Ganz schlecht war Einschulung. keine Chance ohne eigenes Fachwissen. Schulungen nahezu Null. Mitarbeiterführung oder Fragen nach beruflichen Zukunftsaussichten am Anfang 2 Monate gut, dann wurde Headmanagement Abteilung versetzt und keine Nachfolger und Null. Sehr hohe Fluktuation der Mitarbeiter. Wichtiges Wissen geht ständig verloren. Kein Interesse befristete temporäre Mitarbeiter weiter zu verlängern, weil Vorgesetzte auch nicht wissen wie es weitergeht. Hohe Fluktuation und Wechsel auch im Headmanagement und ständig neue Ideen, die aber dann nicht wirklich neu sind. Es scheint, dass alle Einzelkämpfer sind, trotz langweiligen team-schulungs-meetings ohne Ende. PS: das waren die einzigen Schulungen. Onboarding und Teamplayer-Schulung
Pros
Kantine, Kaffee und ein paar Kollegen
Cons
No future feeling

Science environment. Top down hierarchical organization. Very good compensation packages and hence many people not undergoing change. Short term planning culture in daily business leading to compromised work/life balance. Multinational large scale organization with lots of organisational complexity and inefficiencies. Lot of organisational change not necessarily supporting the scientific approach.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
lot of organisational change
