    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brands, highly intelligent people, and really good work life balance. I have never seen another company with almost 100,000 people that respects each employee as much as GSK. I am sure not everyone in the company would agree, but for the most part GSK treats employees with respect. I do wish pay was a little more. For how intelligent people are I think we deserve to be paid a little more. I love the direction of getting back into Oncology, that where we need to compete.

    Cons

    Few, but changes happen quite often. Stick to a strategy and see it through. Lowish pay

    Advice to Management

    Stick to one strategy and keep with it. Open doors to more diversity in executive management, lots of diversity in the managerial positions but as you keep going higher there are fewer diverse senior executives.
