I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There 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.

Cons

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

Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Rich pipeline, name recognition... that's about all I can think of.

    Cons

    Must be liked by Mgr/Dir if you ever want to go anywhere. Micromanaged enviro, must be a robot and enjoy protocol/algorithms.

    Advice to Management

    No one is happy. Forced calibration on rankings/reviews will drive all your best to other companies. If there wasn't a recession you would see a mass exodus. Bonus structure is a pittance for the revenue we drive. Too corporate and fake. If i could find a job I'd leave today!

    Pros

    Interesting and important products, smart and friendly coworkers, and high standards for work performance which I think is important for a company's success. In my experience, salaries are slightly above industry average, and the stock grants have gained in value.

    Cons

    I agree with others that the workload can be very high, and result in no work/life balance. No work from home policy.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership should take time to talk to the people who do the hands on work - they have a lot of insight as to what's going on, and how decisions play out. Ask around some before making an important decision. I'm a mid-level manager, and I see a big gap between the people above me & the people below me on the org chart.
