Does Novartis offer massages?

Pros

Free office bus, working hours 11-5pm, no timelines, free biscuits, coffee/tea and sometimes food, unlimited sick leave, creche with reasonable fees, 100 dollars aka spark points every year ofcourse taxable, free coursera courses but no where to discuss the learnings, free coffee and tea if machine is working, sleeping room, free gym, omg how can I foget 6 months paternity leave, too good place to settle down for middle aged folks

Cons

Line managers don't know the IC responsibilties, IJP exists but a lot of times it's a trap, too many managers line manager, functional manager, portfolio manager (sometimes 2 even if you're more lucky lol) and they themselves are never aligned as each ones objectives are different and they focus on their growth not IC growth, service based promotions not talent/skill based, butter line managers and share their mundane work like sending team invites or do ppt slides for them you'll be on radar for promotion, you can't escape lovely office politics, single digit hike sometimes less than 5 percent even you're extraordinary

Advice to Management

Please don't give false hopes on IJP and conduct interviews and at the end don't come back and tell the role doesn't exist. All managers should be role models but line managers don't know what IC is doing. This workplace is definitely not high performance place as the goal post keeps on changing. Please give priority to the talent not service. Scrap line management it's a redundant role atleast in this part of the world.

Does Novartis have a pension plan?

Pros

Good benefits, annual leave, pension, car allowance, Global leadership has a good philosophy that needs to trickle down to the rest of the organization

Cons

Some managers play favorite and this affects growth prospects. HR in my station was not supportive of the associates

Advice to Management

Put in place better structures on Reward and Recognition in place and talent development to avoid the effect of favoritism or unfair compensation schemes based only n HRs input. Yuo are losing a lot of good talent.

Diversity and Inclusion
On the 18th September, the United Nations observes Equal Pay Day, bringing attention to the disparities in pay between men and women. Four years ago, Novartis signed the Equal Pay International Coalition (EPIC) Pledge to ensure that we truly enshrine the principle of equal pay for equal work for all of our associates globally. Our Chief Diversity Officer explains more about the commitments we made in our EPIC pledge and the great progress that we have made to date. Novartis.com/careers
