I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The people are great to work with. The pay and benefits are very good, with medical and prescription drug insurance being excellent. Work schedules are flexible, allowing for very good work-life balance.

Cons

There have been a lot of layoffs since I have been with the company, and the stress that comes with that is overwhelming at times. The work load is sometimes bordering on too much for the amount of people that are left, and management seems very reluctant to replace people who retire or otherwise leave voluntarily.

    Pros

    GSK maintains competitive salaries, a fun/fast-paced work environment, and great company values. They also hire and retain some of the smartest talent in the industry. This is a great company to work for as an new graduate or mid-career professional. I wouldn't want to work for any other company.

    Cons

    The pharmaceutical industry is volatile and, at times, there is not a great feeling of job security.

    Pros

    Benefits. Great people in the field.

    Cons

    Incentive compensation plan. You don't get paid anymore on territory growth. Upper management is very out of touch with the field. Upper management lies.
