Network Technician & Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Raleigh-Durham, NCNovember 19, 2018
Did not agree with the work being done at this company. There were several projects that were borderline ethical.

Day to day work was good but ultimately did not align with my morals.

The big money keeps you quiet doing the laundry
EHS Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) –  Aiken, SCNovember 19, 2018
Some unethical hiring practices (IMHO).

They claim they want you to "speak up" but when you do, you'll be gone.

The buddy system is big - find a few and hang on to them.
Pros
AMAZING money & benefits
Cons
unethical

Representative (Former Employee) –  United StatesNovember 16, 2018
Workplace culture has been lacking for some time now. Management can't seem to improve work environment. They have removed some of the unique qualities that made the company a great place to work.

Did not enjoy working for this company at all
PRODUCT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Township of Hanover, PANovember 9, 2018
I had a very bad experience working for GSK. Things changed daily and you were expected to learn it on the fly, and be perfect in your documentation. The speed in which they expected you to complete your calls is unachievable. Not only must you be quick but you must also be precise which is very difficult and I could not keep up with their demand.
Pros
Training was provided
Cons
Very stressful work environment

Don't look for promotions!
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Collegeville, PANovember 8, 2018
I've been with the company for over 15 years and have been trying to move up for the last 10 years. Once hired into a spot, plan on staying there, as there are very few positions you can apply for and there are no promotions. Working beyond your normal hours is normal.
Pros
Work from home flexibility.
Cons
No upward growth.

Senior Executive Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKNovember 5, 2018
Nothing but good things to say about GSK. The company has a good culture but the last few years has seen increasing active management of employees with little autonomy.
