Awesome culture and great people!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The best job I've had, the team and managers are overall very supportive, fun and easy going. The company culture is one like none other, especially in a time like this with COVID. The culture is amazing and they really value work-life balance. Best part of the job is definitely the individuals amongst the company!


Great team, amazing work culture, great work-life balance, fair pay!

Unhealthy work culture

Management pretends to be transparent and open to suggestions but as soon as you make them or speak up, they will find a way to get rid of you. They want robots who can recite their marketing pitch, not people who think for themselves. They pretend to be ethical but you will be pushed to do and say things you are not comfortable with.


good pay


Toxic culture

My job is seasonal. Hoping to be "rehired" on permanent basis. The opportunities of growth do exist but we have to be proactive. We have to follow a lot o protocols and GSK invest a lot of time on training. I enjoy very much my work and the team I work with. Very respectful work environment.

good place to work

ok place to work, with a some what human approch.Open to letting you get some advancement, The scheduel 3-2-2-3 are brutal on family life and was the reason for me leaving. If no other Cie uses that schedule mabey there is a reason ! It might work (schedule) in Europe but it's garbage for me and others. If it wasn't for the working hours (12 hour shifts on rotation) I would still be there! It's a great place to work at with a proper shift.


free coffee


3-2-2-3 12 hour shifts

Loved the people, Hated Workflow

GSK was very firm on the way they did things even if it meant hurting the end user. They would not allow me to really troubleshoot a problem but rather wipe the machine . for all cases. I worked as a Contractor but Would not recommend this job to anyone who wants to grow and further advance in their field.

Excellent place to work

Friendly environment with great challenges for a developer who wanted to explore. Most of the work are based on Microsoft .Net technologies and progressing towards agile environment.

I place to work like no other

GSK is more than a place to work. With its cafeteria that’s more like a restaurant, it’s gym with free classes. There are people constantly cleaning the place. It also has a parking garage to protect your vehicle in the winter and keep it cool in the summer. Always up to date on technology that makes it easier to do your work. The people are a pleasure to work with. Safety is also a priority.

strong work/life balance and focus on development

management really cares about your health and development goals and needs. Fast-paced work with collaborative and fun people. Somewhat risk-averse to trying new things.
