      Great Company and Benefits, Horrible Management and HR

      Pros

      Novo Nordisk as a company provides GREAT benefits, PTO, sick time, 401K is amazing! They give a great amount of time off, the work is not hard at all.

      Cons

      Management-To be a manager, you basically need a 4 year degree. Not every manager needs to be a manager, I would say that for half that I met out there in Purification. It's all about politics with a 4 star company... Managers play favorites all the time! HR at Novo Nordisk DAPI US in purification alone is a joke. RUDE, won't let you speak and when you do get to speak, she talks right over you like you don't matter. Politics, they preach diversity etc., and you do see a lot of different people, race & nationality, HOWEVER-all the things that they tell you that NOVO is as a company in orientation, goes right out the door as soon as you get to working your position. Can't get a regular soda anywhere on site, they will give you diabetes with all the sugar and junk food, you can even get sweet tea, but no regular soda... Short lunch breaks, a ton of down time-so if you like working, it gets super boring.
