    I have been working at Novo Nordisk for less than a year

    Pros

    Great products, really care about employees - contractors are treated exactly the same as permies, great benefits, has a culture that really focuses on healthy living, social activities and lots of sporty things going on to get involved with. At Gatwick office, gym, free breakfast and lunch

    Cons

    Because it's a great company to work for, staff turnover is low, so permanent jobs don't come up often. Gatwick location is a bit grim, albeit convenient for road, rail and air travel.

    I worked at Novo Nordisk full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary Decent time off Beautiful workspace People are committed to the message Pretty good work-life balance

    Cons

    Senior leadership is poor - many are incompetent and promoted/hired for political reasons rather than any other. Bad behavior is easily excused here if you have political savvy, and I watched more people get promoted or offered opportunities due to who they were friends with rather than what they were capable of. Changes happen frequently and the company freaks out if the change doesn't go as planned quickly, resulting in more changes, and more changes, and more changes...none of them ever being given the opportunity to stick.
