    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline

    Pros

    I don't have any! I enjoyed the people but in general too much management overseeing...very little independence. I found that when we worked as teams people were able to do little work and rest on the laurels of others.

    Cons

    I would say the downside to working at GlakySmithKline was the inability to progress upward in terms of job opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that there would need to be better communication between UpperManagement and midlevel management. I think it's important for more open and better communication in general.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline

    Pros

    benefits package, helpful coworkers, beautiful campus, motivating atmosphere, state of the art equipment, amazing management, networking, versatility to cross train in various areas

    Cons

    politics, some nepotism, difficult to get interview, commute, no "park and ride", well-qualified workers easily replaced by new graduates, many positions start as contract positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to orient and train new employees, offer more permanent positions to increase feelings of security
