The success of Sandoz and our impact on 500+million lives depends on the performance and dedication of each of our colleagues. We strive to be an employer of choice that attracts, develops and motivates talented and performance-driven people from all around the world.

A key element in building a successful company is providing an environment where associates are recognized for their individual contributions and performance, as well as provided continuous feedback so that they might improve themselves and their performance.

At Sandoz we foster a culture where all employees feel an inherent responsibility to contribute to the growth of their colleagues, by providing them with constructive and forward-looking feedback and in alignment with the Sandoz values.
