Pros

The company researches, develops and delivers medicines to patients around the world. Great benefits and one of the few big pharma companies that seems to be in the right direction while the industry faces major change.

Cons

As is the case with any large corporation, it can be easy to get lost. Company is undergoing significant change.

Advice to Management

We are doing a great job adapting to the changing external environments (regulatory, heath policy, globalization), but there are also risks of turning employees off with so many changes over a short time.

  1. GSK can be a good place to work. Restructuring makes it feel unstable for workforce.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great pay and benefits. The work is always challenging and interesting. Opportunities for development have been generous in the past.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring leaves employees with sense of fear. Middle management is not clear in communicating their strategies. Long hours and some departments are not willing to allow flexible work options.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push middle management to follow the changes Andrew is trying to implement.


  2. Good place to work, just don't get stuck.

    Pros

    - Good pay and benefits, even compared to the rest of the industry. - Worthwhile mission of developing useful products which prolong and enhance life.

    Cons

    - Highly instable as of 2008. - Senior management touts common sense approach to business and then makes decisions that lack foresight and seem to defy any sense. -Company is too politics driven, and deserving people are often passed over for promotions or lateral assignments. - Over-outsourcing destroys employee morale and leads to lower quality service.

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate more with teams that directly interface with the customer base, and do not outsource to the point where you alienate both employees and customers.
