Great place to start in a corporate setting
Project Director - Research & Development (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAApril 14, 2014
Pros: open networking welcomed, great training, and fantastically talented people
Cons: its the pharma business
Great place to work with some very talented people. Most people have had some level of graduate/PHD level education and can sometimes have a academic vibe. Seem like the focus has shifted overseas to the corporate HQ, but that is to be understood following the merger. Overall a great company.

Dept Coordinator/Administrative (Former Employee), Rockville, MDMarch 24, 2014
Pros: the people, the occasional happy hours
Cons: long hours, working through lunches on a regular basis
Each day was a whirlwind of activities, projects, deadlines and the unexpected. You never got bored. The hardest part of the job was multi-tasking 3-4 things at once (on a regular basis), frequently working through lunch and leaving each day tired. The best part of the job were the people.

Very Good, Formal Training
Pharmaceutical Sales Rep (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOMarch 6, 2014
Pros: financially rewarding
Cons: no work/life balance
Perhaps the best sales training I have ever received in sales to this day. I still apply the training techniques I learned. Very formal training, as pharmaceutical is that kind of industry. Expect to have 7-9 interviews and be flown all over the country for them. Training is 3 weeks away from home and you cannot leave for the weekend. It is difficult – more... but very financially rewarding. Not much of a work/life balance. – less

Great company overall
Associate Scientist (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMarch 6, 2014
GSK is a great place to work. They really take care of their employees with awesome benefits and rewards. Albeit, it is hard to get a promotion, but it's like that everywhere. A vast majority of the people are very pleasant to work with. My only issue is that it seems like every two years they decide to shake things up by reorganizing the company yet – more... again (and inevitably lay off a few more people). I've only been here five years and I've been through two rounds of layoffs that directly affected me, and countless others that went on around me. It's getting old! – less

Excellent Training with Great Management
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative-CNS Division (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOFebruary 24, 2014
This is the most professional training you can ever receive. Pharmaceuticals is well known for being difficult to get into but it is so worth it because the training is excellent and rolls over into any industry and can be used for pretty much any service or products you sell in the future. They make sure you learn your information and build your confidence! – more... Management is certain to be there for you and support you whenever you need it. Great company! – less
