    I have been working at GSK Biologicals

    Pros

    Fantastic product innovation. Leading edge brands. World class scientific background. Great place to work if you want to learn in a fast moving environment.

    Cons

    Silo mentality. Thinks itself above and beyond the rest of GSK. Stuck in the past with very old management style driven by senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to change ........ to really embrace change and be part of the larger GSK organisation. Time to throw off the shackles of the past and look to the future.

    Very dissapointing, although the possibility for change was enticing.

    Pros

    Product set is fantastic, and the challenges are great. Some of the people working there are super smart and want to take on the challenges. These are the people that are getting dissapointed and dissillusioned by the rest.

    The IT team there is fantastic, although they do not have enough engagement with the business, and this is a key area for improvement across departments.

    Cons

    Management culture is one of fear and stagnation. One would hope that the new Operations CEO Christophe Weber will put some rocket fuel in and also loose some of the dead-wood. They look like a potential Nokia with many of their current management staff.

    Managing by looking upwards to what they consider management expectations rather than downwards to what is actually happening on the ground is a critical issue.

    Real growth will come form emerging markets, and profitability from moving production from Belgium to overseas. Also remove the 'scientific' approach in management, to a more business based approach will be key.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out the people that are just making it look like they perform, and replace them with performers. Ways of working need to be carried out not talked about.
    Blocking behaviours are your challenge as there is much collaborative covering up of non-productive work.
