    I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time

    Pros

    - Values based organisation
    - Fantastic opportunities if you're mobile (able to move countries)
    - Flexible Working, work life balance is achievable
    - Salary

    Cons

    - Consolidated decision making in London and US, if you're not based in a key location expect to spend a lot of time in teleconferences out of hours
    - Large organisational change currently going on, great opportunities, but also a large amount of uncertainty.
    - Slow decision making
