Performance based organization
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
