Executive Sales Representative (Orphan Diseases) (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – November 17, 2017
Smart, mature people at Gilead. Very progressive culture. Gilead has great products and a diverse culture with a nice balance of work/life. The only negative is there isn't much mobility from one product sales force to another.
Hiring FTE’s was a new benefit offered to employees.
Senior Admin Associate (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – November 17, 2017
Gilead is an incredibly successful company due to the products that is created for medical diagnosis that have been unmet. However they had historically staffed mostly with contractors through a temp agency. The support system for the employees were being developed but not in time for my time at Gilead. Disappointing.
Manufacturing Team Lead (Aseptic Filling) (Former Employee) – San Dimas, CA – November 16, 2017
Easy to get in and very easy to get fired. Management are not following the cGMP requirements and expecting you to follow it. The training is sucks. you have only 3 chances to learn the process and if you failed you are out and if you will make mistakes, you wil be out too.
Associate Director (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – November 15, 2017
Gilead is an excellent place to make good money and feel good about your product - helping patients with life-threatening illnesses. However, all else (the culture) is toxic beyond what I can explain in the number of characters allotted here. Go in with eyes wide open and have an exit strategy in place from day 1. Don't plan to stay longer than 1-2 years.
Research Associate 1 (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – November 9, 2017
While my time working at Gilead was short I enjoyed working with everyone in my department and whenever I had questions someone would always be willing to answer. I gained plentiful experience will analytical chemistry tools.
Therapeutic Specialist (Current Employee) – Indiana – October 3, 2017
Product will be going generic. there is no opportunity for career advancement or career growth. I am looking for a company like gilead that puts their people first, has strong products and a strong pipeline.
Research Scientist I, Analytical Operations (Current Employee) – Foster City, CA – September 22, 2017
Management can never seem to get consensus and consistently changes directions. They can never stick to the same decision. With regards to systems people new consistently re-invent the wheel and projects that have been progressing changes again. This often creates double the work with shorten timelines.
Validation Engineer (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – September 19, 2017
The location of this company is amazing. It is right next to the San Francisco Bay and the weather is always amazing. The workplace is hectic and the work life balance is a bit off. The management staff need a little improvement as well.
Sr. CTMA - Hematology/Oncology (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – September 7, 2017
I had a horrible experience with my line manager who was a newly minted Assoc Director. She was difficult, vindictive and unfair. Gilead was unyielding as they refused to transfer me to a new manager. I had to resign and they gave me a payout as compensation.
Senior Accountant I (Current Employee) – Foster City, CA – August 22, 2017
Gilead is a company that cares for the employees and that shows on the perks and benefits. However, it can be challenged to have a work/life balance. There are a lot of opportunities for advancement on your career since company is growing as well.
