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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits.
    Adequate IT systems and remote access.

    Cons

    Dramatic declining interest in US markets and employees.
    Long term employees are viewed as a liability rather than an asset.
    Employees are now dispensable and discarded if they can hire cheaper or outsource the job. GSK has no loyalty to their employees.
    Lousy open plan working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Long term pharmaceutical expertise cannot be effectively replaced with so-called experts from unrelated industries. Short term gains will not last long.
