    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, stable employment for the foreseeable future, high respect and high integrity environment. The company is patient first focused. Any company that puts the customer first is more successful and a better place to work than the alternative. Opportunities to change jobs occur surprisingly frequently both temporarily and permanently.

    Cons

    It is a highly regulated environment so it takes more time and effort to accomplish new things, which can be frustrating at times. Some areas are understaffed.
