Approves of CEO

Pros

Complex and challenging work
Intelligent and talented colleagues to work with and learn from
Strong corporate culture in Finance
Ample opportunities to climb the career ladder, if you so desire

Cons

Difficult to transfer quickly to opportunities in the US, because of the 18 month rule.
Some employees are '100% fat' ie. they give little value to GSK. If GSK was to make these employees redundant, they would most likely not find employment at the renumeration level they were on and would struggle to sell themselves in the wider job market.

Advice to Management

Review how much fat you have in the organisation and take affirmative steps to cut it out of the company.

    Pros

    GSK provides some of the best benefits of any job I know. Great exposure and cross-functional team working environment. Great educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Could use a little more transparency in the promotion process. Very frequent reorganizations. A lot of changes in the last few years as trying to remake business model to fit challenging times ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put efforts towards transparency in communication. I think the direction the company is headed in is fantastic. Stay focused and the company will succeed.
