    Pros

    GSK tends to employ lovely people who are great to work with. The company has some great brands that can really help people.

    Cons

    There is currently a disconnect between the stated values of the company and some of the behaviours being conducted and accepted within the company. The recent poor results are causing great stress and anxiety within the organisation. Recent corruption scandals in China and elsewhere were very disappointing to see as an employee

    Advice to Management

    Compliance at GSK currently feels like a box-ticking exercise.

    Pros

    Overall GSK seems a good place to work with the Barnard Castle site set in a beautiful location. Most people are really friendly and helpful. Also good share and pension scheme.

    Cons

    Poor pay compared to rest of site, unable to get holidays and time off when you want. Morale seems very low.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on the cons!
