About Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation

Novartis is a world leader in the research and development of products that protect and improve health and well-being. Our global mission is to discover, develop and successfully market innovative products to ease suffering and enhance the quality of life of our patients.
Novartis has been recognized for its admirable reputation, commitment to ethics, status as a respected pillar of the industry and for being an outstanding workplace for its employees. In recent years, we’ve been named among the “Most Admired” (FORTUNE & MedAdNews), “Most Innovative” (Fast Company), and “Most Ethical” (PharmaVoice) companies in the world. With global headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, and U.S. headquarters in East Hanover, New Jersey, the Novartis Group companies employ about 100,000 people and have a presence in more than 140 countries.
Our campus in San Carlos, just south of San Francisco, is part of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp. It is unique because it is home to both a Technical Research and Development site and a Pharmaceutical Operations commercial manufacturing site which combined employ 250+ people.
Our TRD site is focused on developing respiratory products for diseases such as cystic fibrosis, asthma and COPD. It incorporates drug development, process development, clinical manufacturing, inhalation device development, and proprietary equipment design. The site’s primary focus is particle engineering in which the facility pioneered the use of spray-drying technology.
Our Pharmaceutical Operations commercial manufacturing site produces an inhaled form of dry powder tobramycin for the TOBI Podhaler, which is used in the prevention of chronic lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. It is approved for use in the United States, Canada, Europe and Saudi Arabia. The TOBI Podhaler not only gives patients a portable option for treatment, but also dramatically reduces their treatment time so they can live more independent lives.
San Carlos is a significant contributor to Novartis' growth in respiratory medicines, as well as continuing to actively support surrounding communities. We are constantly looking for the best and the brightest to join our talented team of scientists, engineers, operators, quality assurance and control, product development and support services. About one-quarter of the employees in San Carlos hold advanced science degrees. We offer a work environment that values innovation and the continuous pursuit of knowledge in order to provide the best products to our patients. Novartis offers a variety of competitive and comprehensive benefits for eligible full time employees.
