    Positive Outlook

    I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A great place to learn how a big pharma company works. Lots of experienced and smart leaders to learn from. Great offices and physical work environment. GSK does strive to have a great culture and preaches it effectively.

    Cons

    Can be a bit bureaucratic but that is to be expected with a company the size of GSK

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and don't let a few rotten apples to spoil the bunch (ie; find the rotten apples and get rid of them)

          Approves of CEO

          I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 10 years

          Pros

          Great Pay, Benefits and Work Life Balance. Great People You will learn a lot about the details of Pharma industry.

          Cons

          You will be temporary. Your personal life will be on hold while you await to see if you dodged the latest reorganization. You will never know when your time will be up. GSK has a fully staffed HR Severance division. It runs like clockwork and well tested. They have a displaced employee outsourcing company on retainer! No one works in the US for 10 years at GSK anymore. Keep your resume ready.

          Advice to Management

          You can not build a good culture when everyone is scared for their job during the yearly reorganization.
