Pros

Knowledgeable co-workers, professional attitudes, wide variety of training provided, and earnest effort to provide tools needed to carry out work.

Cons

Two tier staff system with excellent benefits for GSK staff but no benefits, no security, no advancement for contract staff - very clear 2nd class status for contractors particularly total lack of parking. Lower level managers often poorly trained.

Advice to Management

Contractor staff make up an increasing percentage of staff so consider giving them some of the more no/low cost extras that all staff normally get. ie use of gyms, parking.
