     in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline for more than a year

    Pros

    Pays well, nice working facilities, feels good working for a company that produces quality medicines and products

    Cons

    Canada is operated as a "satellite" office, with little decision making happening here. Strategy is handled globally, and adopted by local markets.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    GSK Vaccines has great potential and does place an emphasis on R&D. There are many senior scientists with valid experience and in general a positive level of ambition and team work. The pay and benefits are good and the environment for career growth - especially for younger employees is excellent.

    Cons

    GSK Vaccines has a huge bureaucracy which places too high an administrative burden on the business partners within the organization. More problematic is that all decision making powers remain in their original Belgian headquarters despite the fact the company has branched out to North America, Europe and Asia over the last 5 years. The work for many high level employees in satellite sites is not fulfilling.
