Working at Novo Nordisk is good only if you have NO future plans for career development.

Dislikes

I would like to write about Novo Nordisk cons as:
1. Working for Global safety department is a nightmare.
2. Compensation offered is par below the market trends.
3. Partiality prevails highly among team leads at Global safety department.
4. No recognition and no rewards.
5. Annual appraisal is only for the name sake as increments are directed towards the favorite employees of team leads.
6. Respect for people working at GS-GSC is null as the managers are irrational about their thinking.
7. As the per the top senior manager of GS-GSC, "Work performed by M.Pharm qualified candidates can be done by the watchman as well".
8. On top of that if you are a guy aspiring for career in GS-GSC, please do not as male employees are always treated with insult.
9. At the end, please do not look for job in this organization if you are serious about your self-respect and integrity.

The above points are experienced by me and I have worked for 4+ years at GS-GSC and I am happy that I have moved out.

Work

Work is hectic and the demands of team leads at GS-GSC is not at all practical. They want you to slog at work for continuous 10 hours a day and at the moment of annual appraisal the question posed to you will be : "What have you done for the whole year".

This company helped me a lot to learn about many HR tools and got a nice exposure to direct communicate with stakeholders. Company gives training to those employee who really need to groom themselves in the specific field depends on their skill set. If employee does well and became SME then they might get opportunities for off-shoring the upcoming processes. Novonordisk is very strong in their policies like maintaining in Work Life Balance. Company culture and Policy is excellent.

Dislikes

Here just we need to maintain professionalism or else people will drag you done. Need to be very careful and have to read the other's people mind before heading for your career goal because they might mislead you need to take proper information and approach to the right person on the right time without informing anyone. Just need to be aware of the human nature.

Work

To work work with an pharmaceutical company like Novonordisk was dream for me and this is such a company people have ever dream for. I have got many good friends and good foreign stakeholders whom I still connected with afterleaying Novonordisk also.

The finance center is more of a support function doing 95% of transnational work like AP, procurement, Accounting and Budget support.Good chance to interact with different stakeholders,Salary is good and is a challenge if you want to change job after Novo.

Dislikes

Work culture is used to scare people and to be used in the annual appraisal. Senior Management are gossip mongers talking about the employees on the floor. Politics is played at its best. people are asked to leave the organisation without any prior notice, Its more depended on the mood of the VP and Director how the finance department runs and treat employees as slaves treating themselves as gods. RUBBISH environment and a mockery of their own NN values

Work

work wise we had a good team and the right work balance

Novo Nordisk was my 4th company and i had come across with very bad management politics in Novo, compare with other companies.

Dislikes

Company arrange iwinn conferances frequently and give lot of importance on diversity but nothing work practically because i have been facing work harassment since 2013.And i had given written complaint in Novo Nordisk but managemnt ignored my complaint and i was not getting working atmosphere in Novo nordisk. I actually lost my currier in Novo Nordisk

Work

There is no meaning in work with heart because management blindly support to their people even they dont bring any business output still brilliantly they will give all benefits to them.This is my experience i dont know about others. Super partiality is

You will have great collegues here.
Great cash benefits if you achieve more
And i can learn sales from the bests in the industry, great leaders that you will be working with which needs lots of dedication to work on mental and physical levels

Dislikes

Not much that for disliking this company
Sales pressure on targets,lots of procedures, needs great capacity to follow up on dozens of works at a time each day
But they are the world leader so its neccesary and also quite normal in this type of job profile
So zero worries you do plan n get it done

Here the job security and opportunity will be more as they promote internal job switch. Salary is best in the industry and appraisal as well. There is chance to travel but unlike in IT, not more than 15 days, specially in my department. Work environment is healthy and they appreciate hard work.
Politics may be there but I have not been experienced one. There is a chance to grow by learning, they even sponsor.
They do not talk much about innovation or implement any.

Novo Nordisk gives you a platform to exhibit your professional skills and attributes freely and gives enough liberty to express yourself. There is no partiality shown to anybody. Your work will always be recognised and you will get enough co-operation from your team and peers.

Dislikes

There is nothing which I disliked about the company.

Work

Work will never tire you and you will get ample time to complete it, provided you utilize your time efficiently and judiciously.

NovoNordisk has a great worklife balance and the benefits ( though reduced with the increase in number of employees) is employee friendly. Salary hikes on higher side of the industry.

Dislikes

Every thing is on Managerial discretion. If your manager favours you, you will enjoy all the benefits, learning curve will be high.

Work

I was working as IT business analyst, helping the business to enhance the sales.

Great company. Excellent culture.

Dislikes

Leadership is of the utmost importance. One cannot have a leader who can’t speak for the team. Needs some improvement in having some good mentors but overall the company is great and so is the culture. They value their employees.

Work

100 % mediclaim and first ever company to have longest maternity leave and other benefits. Well they have paternity benefits as well.
