Has the potential to be a good place to work, but old school mentalities take over

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A company that has the right ideas but being led by managers that have been there way too long and wont adapt to change/time. Work life balance is poor as there is a lack of trust.

Pros

Good Salary, benefits

Cons

Lack of trust with remote working, old school culture, not great work life balance

Definitely going the wrong direction

Used to be a very good company to work for unfortunately the company appears to have taken the wrong direction in the ways of management and now lurches from one catastrophe to another

Pros

Productive Employer

I have completely enjoyed my 7th month of working with GSK and so far its beaten my expectations. Having previously worked 8 years with British Petroleum, I was sceptical about joining a new Organisation but so far GSK has surpassed my expectations. I have enjoyed myself and the work life balance is very good. I have found my team very collaborative and the team spirit is outstanding. Leadership at GSK is also something I want to commend. GSK is an Organisation that looks after its Employees from my perspective.

Great Company - Slow Progression

Great place to work. People are nice. Some focus on skill progression but largely tick box when talking progression. It’s a large corporate ie. everything is slow.

A great cause

GSK is a great company to work for as you are working as it is a company focused on saving lives. This is such a rewarding part of the job as you know that no matter what you're role is, you are contributing to something so important.

Great place to work!

Expect to work hard and be pushed and also reap the benefits of a large organisation. Company is going through a phase of transition for the better - becoming much more collaborative and is generally an enjoyable place to work.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Can be long hours, but where isn't these days!

Decent but do not know for how long. Poor HR

Good flexibility. Decent benefits. Often goes through big change. Weak HR. Not enough opportunity for progress. Weak middle management. Poor HR Process.

Love the place, really good culture to work.

Most enjoyable aspect of work is the sense of accomplishment, especially when you work with Non-Finance individuals who need Financial guidance to help with decision making. Sometimes due to the size of the company and its nature, it can be perceived to be bureaucratic. Would always love to work here

Wonderful place to work

Great company culture. Huge investment in people. many opportunities for advancement and development. Large corporation so change can be slow and sometimes it is decision by committee.

Perfect!

Worked in GSK for 1 year and 2 months as contractor. Very flexible company and excellent training. One minus is that it is really difficult to become permanent there.
