Good company overall

Principal Scientist (Former Employee) King of Prussia, PA

Prosdynamic, business driven, young, practical, adjust fast to the big environment. In 2008 it was the first big pharm company that dares to cut majority of discovery functions and adjust the structure orgnization to big extent. Good company overall. Good health benefit. Good dental benefit.

ConsExtremely low pay especially for those hired many years ago, do not encourage publishing paper, do not retain the best scientists. Need to have competative pay, do comaparable market analysis and equity research, so those at who have stayed at the same positions will get the same pay/ or even higher pay than those new hires.

    Pros: The beneifts at GSK are a great incentive. I have yet to see a comparable benefits package from anyone in a pharmaceutical organization. … Cons: Currently, there is a lot of bureaucracy at GSK. I would say this is specific to IT, but I hear this is an issue… Advice to Senior Management: There is a huge promotion by the Sr Mgmt team for empowerment.
