Does GlaxoSmithKline pay for a gym membership?

Pros

Good work-life balance, on-site gym and cafeteria and ability to work from home for full-time employees (minimal ability to use this in an internship) Interesting work with clear rules to follow (may be a pro or con depending who you are!)

Cons

Lots of jargon to learn in the first few weeks/months Highly regulated industry and company culture means not a whole lot of room for entrepreneurial or innovative thinking.

Does GlaxoSmithKline offer an employee assistance or workplace counselling program?

Pros

Overall culture is improving. - Flexible working hours and working remotely. - Health and Well-being focused (Free Massage, Health Checks, Boxing class, and Lunch Walk group) - Weekly Morning Tea (Lots o' food) - Social Event (Xmas in July, Oktoberfest, R U OK day) - A shift towards to digital solutions - You will be surrounded with smart, hard-working people. - Decent Pay - EAP - Novated Lease

Cons

- Many forms to fill even for a simple access request - Long turnaround time (good luck if your support team is overseas) - Not agile (yet) as a company - Site is quite remote (lack of food options mainly) - Politics can still be felt and visible (inevitable in a company of GSK's size) - Won't push you to grow unless you are proactive about it.

Advice to Management

Leadership Team should not have favorites towards their subordinates and be objectives; open to feedback from all departments. I have seen people who talks big with no action gets promoted and kept as a manager. But, you're doing a good job navigating through the JV process.
