I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time

Pros

The company has a great pipeline and are currently selling great products. They pride themselves on pay for performance so if you do well, you will be nicely compensated.

Cons

A lot of pressure to hit weekly numbers. It's hard to have your own opinion's on how to execute, they only want things done their way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust the good people you have working for you.

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

    Pros

    Good salaries and benefits. Many talented and intelligent co-workers. Very profitable organization.

    Cons

    Management is proud to state that each employee performs the work of 1.5 employees. No work/life balance whatsoever. Employees will be worked until they drop, then replaced in the blink of an eye. Internal politics are the biggest downfall. Decision makers are set in their ways and are not open to new ideas or practices and manage through intimidation. High turnover makes productivity difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide development and training to managers. At least pretend to have concern for staff well-being.
    Company is too large to function with "old boys network" mentality.

    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have some good drug products in the pipeline that may really help people once approved. That part was exciting.

    Cons

    They still use the "whip and beat method" (to quote another previous employee ) of supervising and "mentoring." Everyone was so burnt out. I would never recommend this company unless they changed their culture, from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be respectful. Treat employees as people, not chained dogs.
