Where Are THe Folks From The 70s And 80s?





Wally Holstrum married into the Ciba family, so his promotions were handed to him on a silver platter. He was an arrogant clueless prick. Donna knew it and couldn't get rid of him soon enough. He was replaced by a reptilian "fast tracker" from Phoenix (forget name) who was one of Bill Sheldon's pets.

Steve Esch? think he's dead....
 




I started in General Drugs late 80s. It was a great place with experienced, highly educated, ethical people. HR was supportive and acted as our advocates. I remember when Mickey Mantle visited and was in Building U signing baseballs.

Complete opposite to how Oncology is run at Novartis today.

Went to an award dinner in LA, Mickey and Whitey were the guests, very funny guys, many stories, Mickey got bombed on "B-52" drinks and kept pawing on my wife whenever he could, I suggested he not do that and got a great "who me" photo........
