    Current Employee - Associate Director in Foster City, CA

    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    lots of responsibility, lots of work and challenge, always lots to do from day one; chance to make a real contribution to making people well with deadly diseases; real sense of satisfaction in helping people live better lives with the medicines we develop; also, a very ethical company.

    Cons

    old boy top management; same that was there 20 years ago when company much smaller; some of the same computer systems are there as well with antiquated IT systems--Microsoft 2010? really? And they just switched to that? And this is silicone valley?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust those below you more; micro management means you do not trust. Commit more than just lip service to grooming and hiring up from within.

    Pros

    Great pipeline, fast-moving, less bureaucratic than Big Pharma, flat hierarchies so lots of exposure to senior management

    Cons

    High workload, slow to adopt technological innovation, tendency of management to micromanage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace innovation and trust your employees to make good decisions
