I did final 8hr Scientist interview with Novartis exactly a week ago and the recruiter called me 2 days after my final interview (just basic HR questions). When should I expect to hear back from them? What is the usual timeline to get the decision or offer letter?

I’ve been having a super hard time concepting lately, especially knowing that the “concept” will mostly serve as a sticker to slap on the cover of a CVA and the top of a website. I feel like every pharma concept I’ve ever seen or created becomes so cheesy once it appears in tactics. Does anyone have any examples of HCP creative (non-DSA) that is both impactful and translates well into pharma tactics?

Whenever I check time, it is always in some special combination like 12:34, 02:02, 11:11, 01:01, 10:01 and likewise. It is so common with me that now it feels uncommon.

Is it unusual to not read books? I don’t think I’ve read one cover-to-cover since I was 14.

I’ve read parts of textbooks for school/college, I vociferously read news and editorial articles, listen to podcasts, watch the news. I’ve bought books like “How to win friends and influence people” and “the inner game of tennis” but they just end up accessorizing my book case.

Im considered a top performer and can entertain in dinner conversations, but I just can’t pick up a book. What is wrong me?


Not a question but very discouraged. I asked for a 20% raise and they came back with “ and all of my years at (won’t disclose yet) I have never seen a 20% increase approved”. I’m thinking well can you ask for fuck sake… ugh so over this.

My husband complained that he can't ever think of what to buy me for my birthday - am I wrong to feel sad about this? I spend a lot of time planning out gifts (I always have a running list of ideas) and surprise him with things that he wants. There is so much that I would love to get as a gift and can easily make a long wish list... but then it feels like the time and effort is being pushed back on me rather than gift giving being a thoughtful act.


I just had my annual review with the company I’ve been working at for a year. During the review, I made my requests- one of which is to be promoted to Director of Marketing. (Which is what I’m doing already without the title) Now they are circling back and saying they want another year before promotion. And they want me to sign a non compete. How should I move forward before our next in person meeting? I’m not pleased.
