Good company with a questionable work culture

One's career development, progression and advancement are dependent on how skilful one butters up their functional and operational managers as well as their favourite sidekicks. The favourites are the ones who are regularly awarded even though their contributions are minuscule. Plus your fate during appraisal is in the hands of the Swiss team who are very opinionated. So not everybody is growing in the organization in spite of the hard work he or she puts in.


The facilities, training and global exposure are good.


Appreciation and choice of people who grow is not impartial. There is favouritism, bias and regionalism even though it's a global organization.

Official response from Novartis

June 23, 2022
Thank you for your comment. We are sorry to hear of your experience and take all comments of abuse, bullying, discrimination or harassment seriously and as such have passed this information to the Novartis SpeakUp Office (formerly the Business Practices Office (BPO)). We recommend you also contact our SpeakUp Office directly via if you have any additional information to share. Novartis strives to create a safe and fair environment for all its associates and thank you in advance for sharing any additional information with us.

Ungenunine, manipulative and questionable integrity

One's career development, progression and advancement is dependent on how skillful one butters up their functional and operational manager as well as their favourite sidekicks.We are encouraged to say no, to voice out, to reach out for support/advice/help but negative feedback will await you from advancing depending on your relationship with managers and their favourite sidekicks.


Still few genuinely kind and supportive people around, as long as one goes to the absolutely right person


Manipulative, double standard and aggressive working culture but team/manager dependent.

Fun workplace

Good place to work, very inclusive environment, a lot of opportunities for employee growth, however, depends on your zeal to learn and grow. Good managerial support

Internal Politics and External Bias.

It's a place where you need to be careful of your superiors. Not everything relies on only performance. Managers here prefer/expect additional nuisance, especially from female employees. Like: expecting coffee breaks, involvement in all the weekend getaways, all sponsored events even if one doesn't prefer it and they name it is as 'collaboration'. Not a decent place when it comes to politics and external bias.


None. Apart from the hiring event and first few days of orientation for luring the employees


As mentioned above

It's productive work place.

I am feeling great that I worked in Company like Novartis where work culture is too good. And seniors are very helping nature. In future also I am eager to work in Novartis. Because of unique quality research products inside clinic respect for sales person is totally different than other pharma people.

Employee friendly, transparent policies and work environment.

People are valued, cared for and there is a culture to look out for one another. Conducive environment for growing, learning, doing. Exhibits core values as an organization - unbossed, curious, integrity

Bureaucratic Culture, Yes Sir/Maam Culture

Extremely poor leadership. You cannot raise your voice against your boss although everyone is encouraged to bring issues. But if you do, you will be at the receiving end and ultimately have to leave the company. Even if you make a complaint to the redressal forum, nothing happens to the managers. They are protected and groomed to harass employees.
