    Current Employee - Mid-Level Manager in Foster City, CA
    Current Employee - Mid-Level Manager in Foster City, CA

    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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
