New group
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CAAugust 8, 2013
My group was new when I joined Gilead. My group lacked direction and leadership. Our Director was a lame duck that liked to search the internet for Giants tickets. I really liked the company but I felt the lack of leadership in my dept. would end with my job disolving. So I found another job outside of Gilead.

I would go back in a minute if I could find a good fit. I learned after my year at Gilead not to take a job just because it's there, make sure it feels right.
Pros
Alot of great people and great benefits
Cons
one bad apple can ruin a dept

Clinical Data Management Associate II (Former Employee) –  Foster City, CADecember 1, 2017
Most of my career was working in a start-ups environment so when I started working at Gilead I thought working for large organization would be less stressful but that wasn't the case. The corporate structure was very isolating and interaction with your co-workers was not encouraged.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Stressful work environment, long hours, no support
