    I have been working at Novo Nordisk full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic products to sell, best in class. Very nice perks from management team with gifts, etc.

    Cons

    My district is a toxic work environment with extremely poor management with regards to bullying in the workplace. This seems to be a common issue- mgmt and HR burying their head in the sand with some issues.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are unwilling to pit employees against one another. Do not let one employee have the manager’s ear, which creates biased interactions with other members on team. Recognize that when an employee repeatedly calls HR on teammates and management and takes multiple leave days- that person is likely the issue.
