Just acuired 3 months ago
IMMUNIZATION SPECIALIST (Current Employee), NJMay 17, 2015
Typical day is you need to see 4-5 customers per day.

Hardest part is the Patient First sales commission structure.
It is not based on performance.

I still have my old Manager at this time from Novartis.

Shedding employees to cut costs
Investigator (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMay 7, 2015
Pros: Good benefits and salary
Cons: Closing sites and cutting jobs
Until 2013 GSK was a great place to work. I enjoyed my job and learned alot. But over the last 2 years the company has started cutting jobs to save money and keep it's dividend high. All my coworkers at RTP are gone and the people I know in Philadelphia are looking over there shoulders too.

Cronyism at it's best
Senior Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee), Manufacturing West ConhohockenMay 6, 2015
Pros: good amount of vacation
Cons: unfair promotional practices, understaffed on busy days, lack of proper sleep by third work day
I worked here for 13 years in this position. Didn't quit because I foolishly allow myself to keep getting strung along as though they will promote me this time and also I need the money. I have trained people promoted over me in simple things like sample submission and work order creation which they should have known how to do for years but because they were someone's favorite got promoted anyway. Some people get to work in the same area for years and get promoted for it while others get pulled all over the place and don't get promoted for it and in fact when they make mistakes in areas in which they are unfamiliar it is held against them while the same favorites get to stay comfortable making salt water for ten to fifteen years. If you try to get promoted and they don't like you because your not in the "in" crowd they will just make up some some lame excuse to not promote you, excuses that people who do get promoted never had to do. If you hate justice, fairness, and sleep by all means work here.

Good company but there are a lot of changes going on right now. Do more with less seems to be the mantra now. The people are intelligent, high performing, and want to do the right thing. The company also has great benefits.

Great company that is in transiton
Senior Executive Hospital Manager (Current Employee), Sacramento, Northern California and Northen NevadaApril 8, 2015
Pros: Great people. Benefits
Cons: Patient First
I enjoyed the opportunity with GSK, it has undergone extreme structural change. Compensation for sales based on test, survey's and managers observations which was interesting to say the least.

New launches have not resonated in the marketplace as quickly as possible. Given guidelines it is difficult to differentiate.

Every company needs to change or they will flounder. I believe that greater communication as to why the changes were taking place would have been beneficial.

Very enjoyable place to work. Great benefits and opportunity for advancement.
Manager, Leadership & Organization Development (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAApril 6, 2015
Pros: Great work environment, benefits, and the compensation.
Cons: The layoff of people over time.
I worked with Business Leads across the company to design, implement and embed training strategies to meet their departmental goals. I learned how to work with different groups of people as well as different training strategies. My coworkers were the best. We worked well as a team to help drive the training goals of the organization. The hardest part of my job was work life balance. You would become so involved with a project it was hard to let go an walk away. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people. I really loved working with such a diverse group of people who were passionate about their jobs.
