I have an offer from Novartis for data analyst position for 11.87 lpa ctc with 10.10 fixed and 1 lac annual performance bonus. I have over 2 years of experience. Is it wise to join Novartis ? Can someone working in Novartis in same position help list down pro's and cons of working here in terms of career growth, hikes, learning, job security and other perks and benefits. And also comment if the offer is fair? They also refused to provide any joining bonus, doesNovartis usually provide it?

Do you’ve any better offer at hand? Are there any more interviews lined up for you?

Pros - good WLB
Cons - slow career growth, office politics (which is pretty much everywhere)

Pay wise this seems in line with what most data analysts at novartis gets hired at. You can get a joining bonus only if you’re in a situation whereby you’ve to return your bonus at prev org otherwise they won’t give anything.


No other offer as of now but I am trying to get one

Bhut politics hai re baba ..technical and financial growth ke L lag jayenge bidu


Satya vachan prabhu!


Noticed everyone is mentioning about office politics here on Novartis, saw these comments in other posts also. What exactly is meant here by office politics , can anyone provide an example? Is it that bad and ubiquitous?

Highly depends on which team you are joining.

What is current CTC? How much hike are you getting. Depends on that
