    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Groundbreaking products that are making a big difference. A great learning experience.

    Cons

    The office culture is toxic. You are surrounded by unhappy people who are competitive and not supportive (there is little culture/camaraderie). The attitude of upper management seems to be that the products are so great that you should be happy to have no work-life balance or ability to voice your opinion. They are proud of running "lean" which means everyone is overworked and burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are unhappy and consider the importance of work-life balance in retaining good employees.
