I worked at GlaxoSmithKline

Pros

Well respected in the medical and scientific community. Excellent dedication to doing the right thing to help patients recieve the medications they need even if it meant providing it for free if possible.
Very Committed to World Wide Health Care. especially in treatment and elimination of disease in the 3rd world communities....HIV AIDS, Hepatitis, Malaria, elephantisis etc. Agressive research and scientific commitment

Cons

Legal & regulatory had too much control over operations. Employee often found out company news or product concerns with the public. Like many large companies employees became more of a number than a colleague ...stress levels placed on all employees is extreemely high 10 on a 1-10

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take company control back from the legal and regulatory department. Give sales and marketing more ability to do what they do best for the products, providers and patients.

    Pros

    You'll find good people at Franklin Plaza in Philadelphia. Employees are ethical and strive to be fully compliant to FDA regulations. A strategic focus dominates business operations.

    Cons

    Strategically strong, culturally weak. Morale has been battered by external issues such as Avandia and by never-ending corporate restructuring. Building is an absolute dump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You employees are the first customers you should focus on. Employees want this be a great, successful company, but it's painfully obvious that possibly except for Andrew, senior management is largely learning on the job.
