    Pros

    The parent company Novo Nordisk A/S is a company with strong values and ethics. The market leaders in their area of expertise and hence good market performance which in turn makes the career rewarding Decent pay revisions annually and benefits like insurance is good but gradually eroding. Reasonably easy lateral movement within the company Financially strong company and hence work force reductions are quite low.

    Cons

    It is a Danish company with a Danish culture which is being messed up with poor Indian HR management outlook Core technology operations are outsourced and hence most of the roles are with vendor management Slow vertical growth

    Cons

    People management is very poor, Bad Managers ruin the motivation to work. To work on their culture, they need to eliminate people who are of old fashioned mindset sitting in the company for more than 15 years. Have a functional manager to review performance.
