    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people for the most part and beautiful office. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Epitome of icky corporate culture at its worst. Fake, back-stabbing, leadership that act like sheep. Speak out against the grain and you risk being reprimanded or pushed out. The emphasis on transparency is complete and utter BS- people tiptoe around the truth. Unbelievably difficult to get information you need to get the job done at such an “innovative” organization. People are not open to change or doing things differently- everything is for optics. I have never worked with a more incompetent HR team, either. Totally siloed organization in a poor strategic position.

    Pros

    GSK has good people that are committed to the company and patients. Emma and Hal seem to have the Company pointed in the right direction and the pipeline is slowly filling. Jack Bailey has been an incredibly strong leader and led the US through 5 very successful years.

    Cons

    The next several years will certainly be tough, especially for those who have been traditionally focused on Primary Care.
