  1. "GSK CHC overview."

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefit package compared with other industries. People are nice.

    Cons

    Working at GSK CHC can be very nice if you are able to look beyond the internal politcs. Promotions are given to friends of managers and not to people who have the ability to do the job. There is low turnover due to benefits and associates without education, who would be hard pressed to obtain the same salary and benefits package elsewhere. With the many layoffs and uncertainty, GSK is a very stressful and an uncertian environment to work in. GSK used to be about the people, now it is a company with bottom line concens as the main focus. People are an after thought if thought of at all.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with people, you will be respected more for that. Do not take satisfaction surveys if the intent is to really make no improvements.

    Pros

    - great co-workers
    - Committed to work together
    - Flexible work environment
    - Better than average benefit package
    - vacation and holidays

    Cons

    - weak management regarding transition
    - Senior Management below C-level - weak at best. Seems as if they are just waiting to retire.
    - Communication lacking

    Advice to Management

    Need to be consistent in times of change. Too many VPs and Directors who lack knowledge about their respective businesses. Talent is wasted due to poor decision making by divisional leadership.
