Current Employee - Associate Scientist in Research Triangle Park, NC
Current Employee - Associate Scientist in Research Triangle Park, NC

I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay, excellent benefits, the people I worked with were great!!!

I'd like to go back...

Cons

I would have given 5 stars except there is ALWAYS the threat of layoffs.

Andrew Witty took over, he got on stage and bragged about how good a job we had done, how good a shape the company was in, how much cash the company had available. Then a week later he announced 5,000 jobcuts. You guessed it, my "position was eliminated".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No company ever cost-cut its way to good R&D.

    Pros

    People are great, work was meaningful, teamwork was impressive (Environment, Health & Safety Department)

    Typical corporate red tape. Takes longer than needed to get simple things done (i.e. need to email 2 or 3 people to track down an invoice)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay personable and continue to attract the good characters that you already do.
