    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time

    Pros

    No one can argue that the company is strong; stock skyrocketing; benefits really good

    Cons

    Manager has no experience in what we do yet tries to tell us how to do it; the threat of job security is always there; very high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What is the cost of turnover? the company pays very well, yet people leave continuously; take a look at increasing retention.

    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time

    Pros

    It feels good to work for a company who's products save lives. The campus and buildings are under constant renovation and improvements.

    Cons

    Independent thinkers need not apply. Differing opinions are not appreciated by management. Blindly following management's without question is required. Yes people will do great!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing was so yesterday. Read current white papers and see that those who outsourced are now insourcing once again due to lack of quality and performance in third world countries. How can you not know that!

    Don't just be happy that managers below you are following the party line. Look into the details of what is really going on.
