    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Overall culture is improving. - Flexible working hours and working remotely. - Health and Well-being focused (Free Massage, Health Checks, Boxing class, and Lunch Walk group) - Weekly Morning Tea (Lots o' food) - Social Event (Xmas in July, Oktoberfest, R U OK day) - A shift towards to digital solutions - You will be surrounded with smart, hard-working people. - Decent Pay - EAP - Novated Lease

    Cons

    - Many forms to fill even for a simple access request - Long turnaround time (good luck if your support team is overseas) - Not agile (yet) as a company - Site is quite remote (lack of food options mainly) - Politics can still be felt and visible (inevitable in a company of GSK's size) - Won't push you to grow unless you are proactive about it.
