Former Employee - Senior Scientific Investigator (Medicinal Chemistry) in King of Prussia, PA

I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Scientific freedom, flexible schedule, excellent bachelors/masters associates

Cons

Individual ambition overrides teamwork, can be some "backstabbing," constant fear of being downsized, lack of management support

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more guidance regarding job expectations and better feedback/encouragement about specific work responsibilities (paper writing, supervising, teamwork, etc.)

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

    Pros

    Better than working at a Fast Food Establishment!

    Cons

    Management is stepping on each other to climb to the top. Good old Boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful which positions you eliminate. Reward good, consistent performance fairly. Provide a career ladder for non-exempts.

    Good company... depending on your department.

    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline

    Pros

    The benefits are very good and flex time options are nice.

    Cons

    Extreme lack of career mobility depending on your department. If you end up in the wrong department, you'll be there a decade with no chance of ever advancing. It's a problem management didn't seem to be interested in addressing at all.
