    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    GSK has great values which I truly believe in and can stand behind. I'm proud to work for a company that continues to give back (be patient focused, Commit to transparency, Always demonstrate the highest integrity in our conduct, show respect to people)

    Cons

    As like all Pharmaceutical companies within the industry, this work can be stressful and very competitive. One could get lost, demotivated and frustrated if not grounded in knowing why they are there (patient first).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support a culture where, any individual within the company, no matter what level can speak freely and feel confident to raise their voice on any issue.


  2. "Primary Care Pharma is a dying industry"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    GSK has some really good growth opporunities working for such a large company and even better is the location for other Pharma jobs.

    Cons

    If you aren't Johnson and Johnson or Pfizer it is hard to compete with the larger Pharma companies in terms of size.

    Advice to Management

    Work on acquiring more products and licensing agreements. Work on relationships with sales force to have the best face of company in front of clients
