    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    GSK maintains competitive salaries, a fun/fast-paced work environment, and great company values. They also hire and retain some of the smartest talent in the industry. This is a great company to work for as an new graduate or mid-career professional. I wouldn't want to work for any other company.

    Cons

    The pharmaceutical industry is volatile and, at times, there is not a great feeling of job security.

    Approves of CEO

    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
