    I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance and flexibility with the option to work remotely on occasion. Good benefits and savings options. Encourages learning and growth

    Cons

    Too much instability. Every two years or so there was a reorganization, so there was a lack of job security. And the work space kept changing from cubicles to open floor plans. The latest "smart space" with no assigned seating was not pleasant, and could be very loud.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off the people who know what they are doing. They are the ones who keep the business moving.
