    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work environment. Intelligent scientific team. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from the top down specifically in PDM department. Hindrance of innovation and growth of employees. No investment in mentoring and recognition. Antiquated systems. No consistent respect for work/ life balance leading to employee "burn-out". Management greatly suffers from a lack of transparency and openness about the "big picture" which hinders the level of investment, contribution, and loyalty employees have with projects. Hoarding information to maintain a sense of power and control is not conducive to a team environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust employees to execute the job they are educated for and paid to perform. Micromanaging is textbook...worst management style ever. It exhibits a lack of trust in your employees and systems. Invest in your employees to allow for personal and professional growth. Be more open to change and innovation as it will assist with reducing attrition.
