    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Novo Nordisk for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are ok

    Cons

    No hope for career development if you only know to work hard but don’t know how to flatter your manager

    Advice to Management

    The management team always claim to care about employees and keeping talents. The reality is about politics, if you don’t know how to flatter your boss, no matter how good your performance is, you can be let go any time without just reason. There are more and more such cases over the past few years since the company has put “let go without just cause “ as a standard termination clause in the offer letter that every... employee signs when joins the company.
