I worked at GlaxoSmithKline

Pros

Overall a good working environment and friendly competent people to work with, but with cost cutting in IT they are constantly laying off staff every year since 2000. IT is no longer a place to be at GSK.

Cons

Everyone is worried about their jobs in IT. Morale is low, productivity is adversely impacted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management does not value IT as a core business at GSK therefore is cutting it to the bone. IT has been cut to the bone, therefore we are not able to complete project work requested by the business. If looking to cut staff, it is time to look on the business side.

    Pros

    - great co-workers
    - Committed to work together
    - Flexible work environment
    - Better than average benefit package
    - vacation and holidays

    Cons

    - weak management regarding transition
    - Senior Management below C-level - weak at best. Seems as if they are just waiting to retire.
    - Communication lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be consistent in times of change. Too many VPs and Directors who lack knowledge about their respective businesses. Talent is wasted due to poor decision making by divisional leadership.
