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

Pros

A lot of latitude to submit innovative ideas and try new things

Cons

Approval process is slow and current company culture defers to no risk so some competative advantage is lost

Advice to Management

Generally I feel things are on the right track with structure and culture. One area to improve would be dentifying enrereneurial individuals and allowing them to progress quicker through career steps. This will allow for the cuture to continue to evolve more rapidly and catalyze more innovative ideas

    I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Replacing full time employees with off-source workers and contractors so historical knowledge is being lost. Those employees that remain are frustrated continuously teaching the new people. Little regard for the quality of products being delivered by IT, more concerned with being on budget and on time.

    Advice to Management

    There is no substitute for loyal employees. Replacing IT employees that know the business and truly care about the quality of the delivered product with outsourced workers/contractors who have no vested interest in the company will lead to frustrated end users.
