Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada Inc.


http://www.novartis.ca/index.shtml

Size of company: Large (More than 500 employees)

Industry: Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology

  • Not a female friendly organization, very male dominated, very white, bullying is a problem in some departments from what I saw when I was there. If you are male perfect organization for you you will go far especially if you think like an alpha male or like a "hunter" and speak like one in a very simple way. I did find they were generally ok marketers and found that they had some of the most talented & attractive women in the pharmaceutical industry which surprised me as the women never had any development plans or career plans for their future in the department I was in while I was there it was strange but they worked so hard much harder than the men who seemed to always be lost as they kept being promoted to jobs and not knowing what to do or having competencies in the area in which they were promoted. Fortunately these men always had these amazing women under them that were much more competent so everything would get done and their careers would flourish while the ladies never seemed to go far beyond manager jobs no access to director jobs. very frustrated pockets of women-not surprising this company had a major lawsuit in the united states that did not surprise me after I left.

This is nonsense. Disgruntled liar.

The person who typed this should have spent more time showing up for work and less time on the Internet. Taking 2 days off a week is unacceptable.

Could not disagree more. As a woman currently working at Novartis, I can say that I have never experienced this and know of absolutely no one who has in the 6 years I have been here. I was frankly shocked to see this post here. It is completely contrary to what I have personally seen and experienced.
