    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    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
