Professional work enviornment with excellent training,compensation and benefits. Thoroughly enjoyed working with all of my coworkers.
Senior Executive Sales Representative (Former Employee), Reston, VA – April 23, 2013
Pros: managed my own territory and business plan that enabled me to develop strong relationships, i gained an extensive knowledge of pharmacology over a broad range of therapeutic areas
Cons: too many meetings that kept the sales force out of the field
After working in the medical industry for many years I found GLAXOSMITHKLINE to be one of the best as an industry leader in product development and research as well as compensation. It was a wonderful work enviornment that provided ongoing training in a professional enviornment. My customer base was primarily Specialist in the Northern Virginia area – more... and after years of being gone I still maintain relationships with many of my former clients and coworkers. The corporate culture was family friendly lending itself to a healthy work/life balance. – less

Social Responsibility, Incredible Science and Great Place to Work
Senior Scientist (Former Employee), Waltham, MA – March 27, 2013
Pros: excellent science, strong sense of transparency, social responsibility and development of staff
Cons: slightly lacking in skilled scientific managers
I loved working here and would go back in a heartbeat. Excellent science, high-value placed on innovation, creativity and pushing boundaries, failure is an option, fluidic structure and approaches, recognition of achievements, just all around a great place to work.
GSK spends a lot of time and money developing their corporate culture as well and loves – more... it when people get involved. There is a huge value placed on social responsibility in the company and it shows. One example is Orange Day. It's like a vacation day to do volunteer work in your community. Every employee gets one and is highly encouraged to use them. If you organize a group, you can get a budget. When I worked there, I organized a group to help a special needs camp prepare for their season. With 20 or so people I got a multi-thousand dollar budget to pay for supplies and make improvements to the camp. I left the company two years ago and I still organize this Orange Day, and still get a budget....crazy... – less

Help Desk Analyst 2011 (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NC – February 13, 2013
Pros: constant smiles
Cons: 30 min lunch break
Each day I learned something new to apply to the next day, thus providing a solution as well. My co-workers were always friendly and willing to lend a hand if needed. I would have to say the hardest part of the job was not being able to help everyone when they needed it because I understand that sometimes you have to take a break even if you don't want – more... to. Overall I learned that you can never stop learning new things. There is always something new and improved coming in the future and it is my job to learn it, master it and apply it accordingly. – less
