Good workplace but very less chances of work advancement
QA (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 May 2017
Till date it is the best pharma company i have ever worked in. They actually care about their employees and products they produce rather than quantity. Only downside is that they usually hire people on contract. they may renew it once or twice.
Pros
good food in cafe and free gym on site

Feel like the heart of the company
Global Program Manager (Former Employee) –  London, UK4 April 2017
GSK puts their people and patients first. It's a company striving to ensure everyone had good work life balance, while also ensuring you develop skills to carry you forward. It is a huge company and sometimes challenging politically, however everyone is aware of their contribution to helping people do more, feel better, live longer.
Pros
Good development
Cons
Lack of job security as the organisation expands into the emerging markets

Horrible team and culture at the Medical Information department
Medical information specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 March 2017
The medical information team is unsupportive and unprofessional. Honestly the rudest people I have ever worked with. Their knowledge is definitely subpar/not up to date. They are far from drug experts, and I would never call them for drug information, just read the product monograph instead.

GSK is a good company with good pay, generous benefits including a subsidized cafeteria, good work life balance programs, fitness centre onsite, comfortable work area.

Too much change continues to happen so it feels like a very unstable environment for managers and employees.

Demanding and highly dynamic work environment
General Territory Representative (Current Employee) –  North York, ON29 April 2016
Fairly typical, home office, sales role. You can make your own hours but expectations to perform are high. Sales management is very good, but overall GSK leadership is mediocre. Sales representatives are no longer based on sales, but on more subjective "good sales rep behaviors".
