Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than a year

Pros

If you have a good idea, you'll find there are resources to support it. It's really the only company I've worked at where this has happened. The benefits are great, within a year of working here,... my 401k was 12x higher than when I worked for a previous company for 2 years.

Cons

It's relatively new compared to other companies so sometimes processes don't exist.

Current Employee - Metrology Technician

I have been working at Novo Nordisk full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great people and benefits. The company cares about patients more than profit margins.

Cons

The GMP environment does take some getting use to.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you’re doing
