I have been working at Gilead Sciences

Pros

If you are one of early employees, the stock option worthes something. In general I can achieve a balance between life and work.

Cons

salary is below industry standard. Very hard to find senior people to work for our people because of the lower salary

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to bump up the salary to attract talent. Offer more oppurtunity for the junior employee to stand out and be promoted

    I worked at Gilead Sciences

    Pros

    My specific team was great, a lot of support from direct supervisors

    Cons

    Upper management did not communicate or display any understanding toward employees as people; Gilead seems to think there are a million people who would be willing to work for them and don't care if you are unhappy

    I have been working at Gilead Sciences

    Pros

    Science focused company, proud to support efforts to fight diseases (AIDS, HBV, CF, etc.), good separation of medical versus commercial activity

    Cons

    Rigid and hierarchical management that underappreciates workforce. Very political and clicky atmosphere. I was told to stay quite in meetings for the first 3 months of my work. Micromanaging leaders. Huge turnover due to poor HR efforts. Critical thinking and creative solutions are not encouraged. Information sharing is difficult / non-existing. Really don't value/appeciate contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your workers, including contractors. Provide better feedback. Stop micromanaging.
