I have been working at Gilead Sciences

Pros

Salary
Benefits
Free fruit, OJ, herbal teas and Muller light yogurts in the kitchens
Generous catering for lunch time meetings and events
Good products and senior leaders who are geniuses in their fields

Cons

Unrealistic expectations of staff
Gilead prides itself in being 'lean' - what that means is that there are not enough people to do the work that needs to be done and as a result everyone is expected to do the work of two, if not more, people.
Complete lack of work life balance
Extremely long hours culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Address the resourcing issue so that people do not have to leave to get a better work - life balance.

    I worked at Gilead Sciences

    Pros

    Mediclal/Dental Benefits, profit sharing and employee stock purchase (20% discount from mkt price). Company sponsored Happy Hour every Friday and bagels every Wednesday.

    Cons

    My incompetent Senior Leader was not engaged with the business and could not manage employees effectively. Over worked, under paid and not appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Leaders need to be more flexible and open to alternative ways of doing things. Also, improve on employee recognition/appreciation.
