We are delighted to share our CEO Vas Narasimhan has been recognized in the Glassdoor 2021 US Employees’ Choice Awards, honoring the Top 100 CEO’s. What makes this so special is that the award is based on feedback from those who know Vas best – the Novartis colleagues! In 2018 Vas introduced the concept of ‘unboss’ or ‘servant leadership’ to Novartis so that, today, we are ‘unbossed’ to work our own way in a diverse and inclusive environment, where we are encouraged to learn and grow while supporting the lives of more than 769 million patients globally. Congratulations Vas!

  1. Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Novartis (United States)

    Interview

    Phone interview was very cumbersome, the interviewer didn't really care much about previous experience or how it relates to the role and was more "feeling out" how I would fit into the team personally. Odd experience, didn't come across as professional.
    Interview

    Do you have a lot of family obligations on the weekends? What do you do for fun, and do you like to go out a lot?
