I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good working environment. Excellent prospects for people who are prepared to put n the effort. Some opportunities for travel. Scope for long term careers

Cons

Constant change in last 10 years has caused some loss of focus. A little too much focus on cost reduction without consideration of the impact that it may have in the longer term.

Advice to Management

Create a long term direction
