Lean focus and quality oriented
Operational Excellence Engineer Intern (Former Employee), East Durham, NYDecember 16, 2014
Pros: good pay/benefits. laid-back work schedule.
Cons: some difficulty with management
Good pay and incredible benefits (healthcare, etc. are some of the best available). Recent changes brought issues with management, particularly Operational Excellence department. Often saw my work with my (new) manager's name on it, and was never allowed to bring questions to anybody else. One newcomer in the right spot tainted what was otherwise an – more... incredible learning experience, and with excellent previous manager (still at the site, but different position.) – less

Investigator (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCDecember 11, 2014
GSK was a great place to work but has decided to significantly downsize R&D in RTP. It was a great place to work with flexibility for staff and good opportunities for advancement. The people who worked for GSK in RTP were some of the best!

Regional Office Administrator (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCDecember 9, 2014
Pros: best group i ever worked with.
Cons: can't think of any.
My current role in GSK as an ROA has been amazing. Worked with an Executive Director, whose leadership was caring, passionate, highly motivated to promote his team, trusting and lives the same values as myself, trustworthy and loyal to everyone he supported.
My Respiratory Care Educators (72 field based people) were the most passionate and caring people – more... I've ever met in my life. Their values were based on educating doctors to best assist the patients all over the country with disease management of their respiratory diseases, COPD and Asthma. It was a pleasure to support this team in any way. I was able to plan and attend National Meetings every year, along with smaller leadership meetings. I was made to feel an integral part of the team in every way.
The hardest part of the job was sometimes the processes for getting things done that required too many steps in what should have been a simple process. – less

Uncover needs with customers so I can bring value to benefit patients.
SENIOR EXECUTIVE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee), Louisville, KentuckyDecember 8, 2014
Pros: i am free to be me!
Cons: company is downsizing
Every work day is unique because every day is defined by customers' needs.

What have I learned? Attitude is everything!

Management? I am in charge of my world. As far as managers, every one has had an awesome relationship with me. Why? I am low maintenance!

Hardest part of the job? It's all an amazing adventure.

Most enjoyable? Making a difference – more... in the life of a patient I will never meet. – less

Great salary and benefits and work/life balance, but very unstable.
Scientist (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCDecember 5, 2014
I have worked here 11 years and only the last 2 years or so it has been an uncomfortable place to work due to the constant layoffs. I have been extremely happy with the salary, benefits and work/life balance. Even with difficulties with supervisors, HR responded well and took care of the problem. It has just been an emotional roller coaster with the – more... constant changes and layoffs. Hopefully in the near future this company can be more stable. – less

Great opportunity to impact people's lives.
Senior Executive Sales Rep (Former Employee), Dayton, OhioDecember 4, 2014
Offered opportunities to make a difference in peoples lives with outstanding drugs for respiratory ailments. I called on doctors and detailed them on my products. I enjoyed the interface with doctors and their staff. My co-workers did their job at their pace and had little effect on me. The hardest part was taking monthly oral and written exams, lasting – more... 2 hours and needing to get 90% on each exam or you lost your job. The best part was working on my own and having an impact on changing patient's lives for the better. – less

Definitely a Unique Experience
Chemist (Former Employee), SCNovember 8, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay
Cons: culture
A typical day at work is a very busy one. You were expected to work 45-65 hours a week as a salaried employee. At this site, you are expected to fulfill so many job functions that you are not able to focus on one aspect or interest to become a SME, in fact you are expected to be a SME on every aspect of the job in addition to others jobs. Extremely – more... challenging.

I learned that you do not have to have a degree to obtain a job and move up in the workplace.
Management..... a work in progress definitely.

The hardest part of the job was lack of effective communication throughout the site and the fact that the cafeteria only provided vending machines and sodas. I had to drive 10-15 minutes to get lunch everyday and go back to work. I was hired as a Chemist and the job description did not match the job expectation.

Co-workers at the site were ...... A lot of employees left the site while I was employed there. I did met some nice individuals.

I most enjoyed being a coach, leader, enthusiast for my immediate team. I enjoyed training others and working with Technical Engineers for method improvement. I enjoyed bringing the positivity into the workplace and inspiring others to accomplish goals and challenge themselves. – less

Housekeeping Cleaner (Former Employee), King of Prussia, PANovember 7, 2014
Pros: great learning experiene
Fun place to work very detail typical days work was to prepare your station and equipment for your daily duties.Double gowning before entering clean area was very interesting you had to make sure every thing was put on in a careful way not to bring germs into the cleanroom .Signing of log books before entering and leaving the room sanitized all surface – more... areas. Working for GlaxoSmithKline I learned to be very focused and alert because making mistakes was not welcome you had to be very on point.
My co-workers where great team players if we get behind we would help each other .Management was easy to talk to and they would try to help you with any problem they could very professional. the most enjoyable part was knowing that I played a important part of the company. – less

Supervisor, Oncology/Proj. Mgr. (Current Employee), Collegeville, PANovember 2, 2014
Pros: flexible, team members, benefits
Cons: overtime often due to deliverables
Good company benefits and average workday. However, overtime is required often due to compound deliverables. Co-workers are team players. We have constant change to SOPs, FDA Rules and MHRA audits and requirements. Multi-tasking keeps our staff up-to-date on process improvements, SOPs and department guidelines.
