OK

Bio Statistician (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than a year

ProsThere is always work, so no worry about job security. Most co-workers are capable and sincere. Convenient location. Salary is catching up w market. All kinds of clubs for different interests.

ConsWork load is heavy, timeline is tight, overtime is kind of expected. Coordination across different functions could use some improvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen timeline gets pushed again and again, employee either got exhausted or have to compromise quality of work.
