Hi All,
I am going to join
Novartis in next month. Any suggestions for hotel to stay nearby. Also are there any constraints like only 25k or 30k will be reimbursed for hotel stay as part of relocation assistance. Can I take two more people (mom and dad) with me to stay there in hotel.

You and both your parents will be provided a free stay at the Marriott for 14 days (at least your stay is confirmed for 14 days; not sure how many days parents are allowed). This was so in 2019 Aug when i joined. 3 buffet meals covered during stay. Any room service and laundry will be reimbursed by Novartis. Yes, midnight icecream cravings too. We were told that if we pay for anything (without letting staff know that it is all meant to be reimbursed: the staff tokd me they will send my laundry & food bills to novartis directly, and i didn't pay anything to them; don't know about others as no one I knew took any extra services), that can be construed as bribery to novartis for job. I stayed alone and if I ordered room service, i kept it fair and within reasonable limits (a sandwich here, a burger there.. maybe some fries sometimes). I didn't order too many times either. Hotel cab will take you to work and back every day. You must find your own accommodation in those 14 days.


Can some one confirm if 3rd meal is reimbursed by novartis or direcly paid... since i am told only 2 meals are paid..

Connect with your HR partner he will provide you all the guidelines and stay arrangements


Thanks for your input.

Hey fishes,

Please note that you should NOT APPLY to a job on your own before asking for a referral at Amazon. In such cases the referral is deemed invalid.
Only candidates whose application is primarily submitted through referral are considered valid.

Note - Got a couple of such cases, so thought of posting this.

Hi! Looking to see what the average salary range is for a Workman’s Comp Adjuster with one year of current experience, in the northeastern NJ area. I feel as though I’ve brought value to the company, eagerly take on side projects and additional work if requested, but also feel underpaid.


Not sure if this is the right home. Urgently need recommendations for alternatives to Divvy. Brex and Ramp have come up in my searches. Any thoughts on these? Any other services to consider?
