    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *great place to network
    *excellent gym
    *gorgeous campus
    *good stable job

    Cons

    *no room for upward mobility
    *if you're nostalgic for middle school, this is the place for you (need to be part of the "right" clique)
    *middle management lack experience and common sense, but I blame this on candidate selection from upper management and inadequate training
    *tremendous workload

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the people who do the actual work not those who report progress to you. Many great people have been lost because their managers don't know how to manage and who to recognize. Get rid of the dead weight cause the only thing they can do right is play the politics.

    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good product line - hepatitis, HIV
    knows when it needs to make acquisitions
    CEO John Martin is really intelligent - met him when worked in house
    easy to move up if you so desire

    Cons

    a lot of disorganization
    sales reps don't get their fair share of the pie in terms of compensation
    easy to move up in the company, almost too easy sometimes sacrificing skill-sets and maturity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was a top sales rep and would have stayed and worked hard for the company if I was paid my bonuses on time and fairly.
