"They have their own way of doing things. And most of it stems from the fact that the headquarters is in Switzerland. It may take time to adjust and learn the lingo, but it is a great place to work."

"No. The culture is very stifling. The conformity expectations are too high. Novartis has to expand its sense of 'acceptable masculine' in order to build the skills necessary to support a range on 'acceptable feminine'. "

"Senior level female here. I can assure you that the company does not see males and females as offering the same degree of contribution to the company. I could write a book. Really. "

"Eyes open -if you have real career ambitions, be careful about the jobs you take -and negotiate hard for titles, salaries and benefits. There's little chance to fix things once you are in the role"
"My chosen profession is generally a male dominated environment. However here at Novartis I have had to female IT leads which has been refreshing to say the least."
"We are all a product of our environment. Implicit gender bias by both men and women exists however there are attempts to balance the disproportionate gender inequality."
"I've worked for 3 different managers so far and my manger has the biggest impact on my work happiness. I worked for 2 men who were workaholics and would make me stay super late very often. Now, I work for a working mom who prioritizes family. My life is so much better working for her! Managers change frequently so don't panic if you get a bad one at first."
"Be ready to compete with men culture and be set aside. You will fight for every thing even to be treated fair. You have to have a coach and a top manager to protect you and help you or it will be almost impossible to grow."
