I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (More than 5 years)
Successful company with good products that are improving the life of patients. Good pay and benefits, generous ESPP plan.
It is difficult to achieve work life balance. Some departments are very focused on the bottom-line and employees don't feel appreciated.
Advice to Management
Continue the great work in the areas of Research and Development. Focus on retaining talent and improving morale in the G&A functions.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences.
Typically HR phone screen first, the hiring manager phone screen, then onsite team interviews including the above plus team members, plus manager of the hiring manager. Typically each onsite staff is responsible for a set of questions (to avoid duplication).
