I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Overall, the company is going in a positive direction under the leadership of CEO Andrew Witty, a young CEO with international experience. The benefits are amazing and under the right departmental leadership, your voice can be heard. I had several managers and the best ones inspired me to stretch beyond my initial goals.

Cons

It's a really big company so bureaucracy can seem at times a bit daunting. That said, there are a few initiatives that are looking to reduce the number of approvals needed. Promotions can seem arbitrary at time. The people who work at GSK have been there a long time so while they are very familiar with how things are done, change can be slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more opportunities for internal movement so people continually learn and grow.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, I would love to go back.

    Cons

    Little to no advancement opportunities and layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something so that layoffs are not 'needed', better utilize employees, especially those seeking more work/challenges.
