Professional work enviornment with excellent training,compensation and benefits. Thoroughly enjoyed working with all of my coworkers.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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 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.

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

Do not work there

They have high turnover and do not follow their own values. The people that work the hardest to prove their worth and that they can do a great job will get pushed to the bottom and they will hire off the street instead of hiring within.

Good workplace to do the job

Worked peacefully during the stay.People are very friendly. And personally, the organization helps people to the maximum.Nothing personal will be exposed. It is a very good company.

Trató injusto

En esa empresa hay favoritismo, los team leaders no te ayudan y si te ayudan ven que no das lo q ellos dicen q puedes hacer te despiden o hablan con la agencia y hacen q te despidan. Ahi hay personas que son hermanos de los gerenciales y se creen q son dueños también y no consideran los empleados .

Pros

Trato

Good pay and benefits, with high stress and hectic workload

For the most part it is a good place to work with lots of good people. Can be a very hectic and stressful work environment. You need to set clear personal boundaries or they will have you working around the clock trying to get your ever growing task list down.

Pros

Good Pay. Good benefits. Flexibility

Cons

Everyone is overworked, too many meetings, stressful work environment

Great Company

Fantastic overall company, flexible, inclusive culture, considerate and offer great work-life balance. Depending on your role immediate managers are receptive, positive and will assist in your development goals.

Pros

Excellent perks and activities for Full and Contingent Colleagues

Cons

As with any huge corporation, when drilled down, management does lose sight of the real day-to-day challenges employees.

Unethical Employees & Management

The ethical employees have left either by choice or through underhanded practices so the company doesn’t have to pay layoff packages. The caliber of those remaining rank worst in the industry.

Tech Roles are extremely federated

Great Organization and culture. However poor leadership in certain functions. Few leaders do not have any domain knowledge and they have sustained only through their network and rapport with senior leaders. If will be part of those teams, your career growth and learning will be very limited.

Overall good experience

Poor management but good for my career profession. I enjoy working with the people on my team. Essentially no yearly salary raise, not very competitive pay.

Great coworkers and patient focused.

Really enjoy working at GSK. They encourage employee development and a collaborative environment. They recently spun off the consumer health division and everyone is excited to be part of the next chapter for these two new organizations.

Great place to work.

Fast-paced with constant change and high standards but friendly and approachable people even up to senior leaders. Decent base salary but well topped with good bonus and benefits.

Poor management

Managers only promote family and relatives. If you are not related to someone else you will not advance.Beware of speaking up about others poor performance.

GSK has worst unprofessional Discrimitive Training Facility

GSK Rockville training team are the worst, Gsk will hire agency that dont tell nothing about what your postion or job task will be. Gsk facility descriminates people with disabilities, GSK trainers never help me with my small parts training, never gave me a chance to perform my task or pratice. never gave me an explantion why I was let go during training. expect you to just know everything right out of bate. and say your job is an interview process after you just got hired. and if you dont perform the small parts right they will let your Boss know and you get fired they will just threatened you. make you feel stress, worried and scared.

Pros

nice people

Cons

they rush and never take there time, they pick and choose base on fastness
