    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals (More than 10 years)


    GSK is a good place to work overall. The company today is struggling and the work environment is much more reflective of the struggle and the stresses that accompany it. The company was much different in the past. That being said, it is still a good place to work if you reside in NC. Old leadership has been eliminated and new leadership is trying to find its way.


    The company spends far too much time on the little things. They live in constant fear of getting in trouble with the government and are afraid to take on any risk whatsoever. Virtually everything is questioned. They rank every employee by department and use a lot of subjectivity to arrive at those rankings. It creates competition between employees and, instead of trying to help one another as good teammates should, co-workers snicker knowing that at least one person will take the fall at bonus time. If I could change one thing, it would be the unfair treatment to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the decisions you make not only impact that employee but her family including her children. Be real with people. Shoot straight. Walk the talk.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals.


    There was an initial phone screen that reviewed the resume and qualifications. There was also some targeted selection based questions. The onsite interview was with 4 different directors who asked situational based questions and also required giving a presentation.
