Pros: People, rigor in strategic processes and resource utilization, long term incentives (401K, stock ownership, and pension), convenience in Philadelphia area

GSK is a great company full of fantastic people. It has enabled me to grow immensely as a leader by awarding me ownership of large-scale projects, providing fantastic feedback and coaching from leadership and peers, and enabling me to participate in formal development programs. I have learned how to leverage its matrix of stakeholders, resources, systems, and processes.
However, its recent performance and future outlook have had adverse impacts on company culture, resources, employee compensation, and career development opportunities.
