Don't let this be the determining factor for you! I am speaking from experience -from someone who made the move to Gilead primarily due to the increase in salary, and all added perks (employee stock option program, bonus). Gilead has a very different corporate culture and environment vs. other companies. The bar is set extremely high- with even very tenured reps squawking at how unrealistic/unachievable the quotas are. The learning curve is also set extremely high so you better be quick to adapt because if you don't, since the company runs so "lean", you will be left in the dust. If you don't thrive in a high stress environment or are willing to dedicate your life to your job, this is not the right job for you.
