I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great people overall, employees generally have a sense of purpose. Company is doing great financially, employees are reaping the benefits of growing stocks. Great pipeline, respectable world mission, ESPP have two year lookback. Weekly happy hour, growing company.

Cons

Overworked and undervalued. Salaries are often not as competitive as companies like Genentech. Promotions, recognition is hard to come by. Middle management can get pity and childish, clique-y and often impacts employee moral. Often hires from the outside, assigning outside hires higher leveling/compensation than internal candidates. No work life balance. "Lean" means that they refuse to hire until it's too late and things hit the fan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on being proactive instead of reactive and perhaps turnover will decrease.

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Good cafeteria and the gym is not bad.

    Cons

    Employees do not live their values. Pack dog management with ongoing fights over the leader of the pack. Culture encourages power plays. Senior management retained for longevity and for being lapdogs. Short cuts taken to meet milestones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house at the top.
