    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Novo Nordisk full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good life work balance for the most part.

    Cons

    Executive leadership changes over the last 2 years has caused many changes and two major reorganization resulting in significant reductions of work force and questionable strategies for sales and educator team.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together management! Moving a significant amount of staff to health system models will not work, and moral will remain low.
