I have been working at Gilead Sciences as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Company has a strong portfolio, which is only going to get better. Company offers a happy hour ever week which is a good way to wind down.

Cons

Company is still developing so many of the processes have not been solidified. Most openings are for contractors and it takes close to a year to be converted to full time. New Therapeutic Areas piggyback off more established ones, so you don't always know what you're doing is right.

Advice to Management

Recognize strong employees who show the drive to move up. Offer them advice on expanding their careers and growing within the company to avoid turnover.

    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The stock is performing well and will most likely continue to do so. Convenient access for commuters on the Peninsula.

    Cons

    Middle management is a joke. Sr. Mgt has no idea what is actually going on below their level. There is a big push in HR to obtain new talent so I find it interesting that the positive posts are all by directors or sr. level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what the middle management is actually doing. Are they working or are they socializing? Are they delegating so much that their direct reports are doing all of the work and getting none of the credit for the timely deliverables?? Employees are burned out quickly. If you figure out how to reduce this you might salvage some employees.
