The culture was great & there were new learnings all the time. You had to deliver on your objectives without compromising. Quarterly performance reviews were conducted. Management gave you ownership to make informed decisions in the interest of the the company. Conferences were always the best, they made sure that we work hard and at the same time reward accordingly.

GlaxoSmithKline is currently a place where an employee is constantly under pressure, mainly because of poor planning. It is also because managers who do not have good leadership skills.

In the right team, job is challenging, exciting and highly engaging. Overall experience depends on the strength and open-mindedness of the line manager. Here, I grew professionally, gained extra experience outside my day-day job scope, gained a Master's degree through the company's support and were also more in touch with my personal life as the company has initiatives that support work-life-balance. At some point it becomes difficult to escalate the career ladder due to the flat structure and constant changes.
Pros
Lunch allowance, work life balance, Vaccines Assist
Cons
Biased management, Flat structure, Retrenchments

I spent 27 years working at GSK, from a humble sales rep to finally working as the Market Access Manager, liaising with Braclays/ABSA & various MOH north of the SA borders to develops ways to get basic medicines to the poorest of the poor. I held a number of different of different positions of varying responsibility during those years, reporting directly to EXCO for the final 15 years of my time there. There were many ups & downs, I survived many mergers & acquisitions etc. Personal development of staff was one of GSK's key focus areas. However, after all these years I no longer have the desire to work in the corporate - been there, done that!
Pros
Culture, work ethic, personal development
Cons
Work/life balance
