          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Good work/life balance. Reasonable benefits

          Cons

          So many restrictions. No chance for upward mobility if you’re in the field. Maybe after a decade you can move to a senior sales role. Resp products are good, but sales strategy is mudane and old-fashion.

          Advice to Management

          Hire people that truly want to do pharma sales only and not looking to move up.

          I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 20 years

          Pros

          Colleagues work harder, safety is taken seriously

          Cons

          Leadership doesn’t listen to its employees. Employees are strained and overworked. Barely any money to spend on employee engagement. Teams are asked to do pot lucks. At most you will get one lunch paid. It makes the employer look cheap

          Advice to Management

          Tell your managers to listen to their employees!!
