Company attempting to make massive jump in how it works, but too much deadweight might pull it down.

No opinion of CEO

I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good working environment, some very capable people. Lots of growth potential. Not as open to new ideas as previously thought.

Cons

Pay is all over the place. Same seniority ranking can have over 30% difference, doesnt matter amount of direct reports or work hours. Company has restructured benefits, bonuses, and pensions to be as low and as cheap as possible. Work hours can be quite tense at time, and culture represents a hit or miss and you're out. Recognitions are a bit of a joke when they do happen. Organization very burocratic and slow to react at times, very seniority driven.

Advice to Management

Clarify and standardize salary curves per grade. Recognize long hours and real contribution or the business. There is a lot, a LOT of dead weight.
