    I have been working at Novo Nordisk full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The Novo Nordisk Way is anchored in every way possible so it becomes not only a business, you feel like everything that you do is for a higher purpose and is for a good cause. This is reflected in every aspect, especially it creates a peaceful, long standing communication and collaboration between employees. It is really important to have this in your workplace where you spend most of your daytime anyway.

    Cons

    The salary policy aims a median benchmark and over time this will hinder competitiveness in the market.
