    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good growth, fast paced, challenging environment

    Cons

    Bad atmosphere in some departments, with management having little regard for employee motivation and development, and being too aggressive and downright rude and disrespectful.
    Few options to move internally.

    Advice to Management

    Be demanding but not insulting and aggressive to employees.

    Pros

    Salary
    Benefits
    Free fruit, OJ, herbal teas and Muller light yogurts in the kitchens
    Generous catering for lunch time meetings and events
    Good products and senior leaders who are geniuses in their fields

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of staff
    Gilead prides itself in being 'lean' - what that means is that there are not enough people to do the work that needs to be done and as a result everyone is expected to do the work of two, if not more, people.
    Complete lack of work life balance
    Extremely long hours culture

    Advice to Management

    Address the resourcing issue so that people do not have to leave to get a better work - life balance.
