Novartis has a wonderful work environment. If you are interested in working in other departments, you are welcome to spend time in that department to learn more about it. Novartis has an “unboss” culture where managers treat you as an equal. There is an open door policy and managers are very easily accessible.

Novartis is a brilliant organisation. Working for a multinational organisation only opens doors of opportunities and exposure. Very, very fast paced environment, Great leadership and culture within industry. Everyday was something different. Working on new projects and news brands within SA, Africa, Europe, USA and worldwide. I worked with amazing people from all different walks of life and from all over the world. Understanding their culture and being exposed to vast range indirect sourcing within the industry. I got to travel worked on many international projects. The company always pride themselves on staff wellbeing. The hardest part of my job was employees always resisting change and not wanting to follow Procurement process. I loved in industry, working for a wonderful organisation, being instrumental in launching of new products and understanding our competitors. Procurement providing strategic souring strategies to the company and operational support. I've learnt and grown so much within this role and organisation.
Pros
Staff Wellness, Great Exposure
Cons
Better facilites for staff

Novartis Southern Africa Country Group is housed at the Novartis South Africa CPO office in Midrand in Johannesburg but looks after Southern African Countries. Typical day at work consist of cross functional meetings, aligning with commercial and franchise head on key tactical plans and activities update in all the 13 countries we look after. This is coupled with field trips for key activities on the ground in the various Southern Africa countries. Learned a lot at Novartis being my first Pharma jobs mainly how different cross functional divisions come together to deliver and win for patients. Also learnt how to operate and adapt in the different markets across Southern Africa as they pose different issues and also require market specific solutions that are tailor made for the specific countries. The management is very accommodating and nurturing and actively take interest in your career development also coupled with the fantastic and very collaborative and helpful co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job is bringing innovative medicines to the rest of Southern Africa and improving patient outcomes through collaborative partnerships which is very fulfilling as we make a difference for a lot of patients in need in Africa. The hard part was the gap in knowledge and also the delayed registration of medicines in Africa that made products available very late for African populations at times 10 years back so those products would lack a lot of Global support since at times they would be at the end of their lifecycles.
Pros
Great working environment, clear development plans. great coaching and mentoring
Cons
Operating in politically and economically volatile environments a big challange
