    Working at GSK is like jumping into a shark tank.

    I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I cannot think of any.

    Cons

    Deceptive management, made my position redundant in order to employ the clinical director's wife whose position was being eliminated by the creation of a new company. I have since found out that the company's redundancy method was *illegal*, offering me no opportunities for redeployment. GSK is a company bereft of ethics, and I would not hesitate to recommend a friend or colleague to avoid them like the plague.
