    Pros

    Stock doing well--much money to be made from stock benefits
    Great place to be trained--doing job of 3 people at once
    Really great scientific colleagues

    Cons

    Exhausting--work 24/7
    No work-life balance (no life period)
    Timelines and lean culture only getting worse
    Massive burn-out
    Every employee survey shows that an overwhelming number of people say there is an insufficient number of people for all of the work, but senior management has clearly stated that they will not change the culture
    Have a spouse and/or kids? Forget them--you'll never see them if you want to be successful at Gilead

    Advice to Management

    No advice--they don't care as long as the investors are satisfied.
