Current Employee - Director in Foster City, CA

I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Company strives to be the best in its field, while not always on course, eventually does make corrections

Cons

Have to be "in the network" to be appreciated

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walk around office to office more, give reports coaching on how to deal with senior management, then give them exposure

    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time (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.
