Territory Specialist II Cardiology Specialty Sales in Rockville, MD
on February 11, 2016
The pay is great as well as the benefits and there is work life balance. It is a strong selling environment and the National meetings definitely get the fires burning.

Great co-workers, amazing benefits, feel like I’m making a difference. My boss cares about my growth and development within the company, and I feel appreciated.

The marketing materials, other supportive resources & continuing education are best in class at Gilead. Also, Gilead products are also best in class with excellent scientific data supporting widespread use. However, the company is very bureaucratic & micromanages all sales activities to the extreme. Middle managers are generally not good at Gilead. Annual reviews emphasize employees “perception” over performance & although the company says the incentive plan is not capped, there is definitely limitations implemented into the plan minimizing what one can actually make.
Senior Manager in Raleigh-Durham, NC

I have been at Gilead for a year now. I have meetings with my project leads 1 to 2x a week. I spend 3x a week working from home for my actual coding (my role is analyst). My coworkers and leads are friendly and accommodating. I also took in-house training of other programming languages as well as other company-paid workshops and conferences, learning new analytic concepts. However, since I am on the East coast and the company is in CA. I have to start my day in sync with Pacific time, meeting sometimes at dinner time.
