Limited prospects for advancement depending on distance from hub

I had 12 yrs at pre and post merger companies both had their pros and cons. In the main a meritocracy until high growth meant quotas in promotion and led to the appraisal train which was often de motivating. Management by metrics sadly replaced true leadership and a peer coaching culture was viewed by some as alien technology and eradicated Loss of market share led to shrinkage in sales force eventually becoming largely a telesales outfit

Pros

Some good leaders and sometimes real engagement

Cons

Management by numbers

Process technician

Good at the time. Was contracting. Company was changing priorities at the time so ended up training my own replacement (was on a contract role) and lied to about it. Otherwise great company.

Good environment

Having been working on &off .at various pharmaceutical &nuclear sites .I've never really been asked the questions of how you rate your job .generally most of our tasks are repetitive. On some odd occasions you come up with a solving solution. Which is fine as long as your still willing to learn &someone is willing to teach you .which I've never found a problem with .I would call it industrial learning .on site . So I find my experience counts .

Boring

People 9-5 oriented money not to save the world .A lot of socialism.Not m.i.t spirit Not Harvard spirit.Standard jobs for standards people .But that mentality is not for everyone.

Meaningful manufacturing operations of lifesaving drugs

Great pay and conditions, pensions, share Save, flexible working, great development opportunities for those that want them. I worked for GSK for 30 years and changed roles 10 times from R&D to Manufacturing, Project roles etc. Lack of long term strategy for the Worthing Site has led to redundancies and reduced headcount and spiralling costs. Nevertheless I would recommend GSK as a great place to work.

Pros

Pensions, Shares, Generous redundancy terms, Development, Caring workforce

Cons

Site Leadership directionless and constant change of Site Director every 2 years
