Busy place and lots of experienced to gain.

I learned a lot from pharmaceutical packaging/manufacturing side out business. People take ownership of what they do everyday. Rarely see the higher management on the production floor only on special meetings.

Pros

clean environment

Cons

Work life balance

Productive, Team Spirit

It was a great place to work with lots of opportunities I was in a Global role with my manager based in Philadephia. I supported several countries with different requirements that made the job challenging and interesting. My peers were based around the Globe and we supported each other.

Do not recommend

Recruit via contract by advising just paperwork to move over which is not true. Big disparity between contract roles and company roles especially for maternity. Marketing advise of unethical procedure.

Productive & resilient culture

Great working environment Flexible & relaxed approach to tasks Lunch time walks No over time I learned that these global environments can be as fun as well as challenging sometimes. Specially when it comes to job security. Restructures are a hard reality of these times & when it hits you, it's not pretty at all. Although the benefit of working in the global companies is that they support you at every step including at your time of redundancy by providing outplacement support etc.

Nice colleagues, terrible management

There are a lot of nice and knowledge colleagues to work with, however, the management level does not have vision and does not see the value of technical stuffs. They expect leadership of everyone and do not respect the people who actually got things done. Good people tend to leave the company.

Pros

nice colleagues

Cons

poor management

Constant change

The company undergoes restructures every 18 months. The sales team no longer is assessed or incentivized on sales results but by how the sales call is performed. The culture has become very conservative and creativity is stifled by red tape. The focus is almost on what one should not do instead of what one should do.

Pros

Big organisation with great products.

Cons

Micro management on many levels.

Contract

I was contracted to GSK by a labour hire company on 2 occasions, great supportive team on site, learnt and shared many skills. It was an interesting time even though the short nature of both contracts

Pros

Great pay rate

Cons

casual employment

Half Decent place to work

Pays well for the most part in most areas of the business, there's worse places to work in the world. Get on and focus on what you're doing and you'll be fine

Pros

Subisdized lunch

Cons

Poor Management, Skeleton Staff

Biased company with only female employee in mind.

All female and male (employee) must be a science graduates in order to be consider a working chance to be review. Officer in charge do not understand the how the down line employee get the job done. They do not understand how work standards are logical and illogical.

Pros

company subsidies lunches

Cons

biased toward female workers only.

Great place to work - the people are brilliant and just like a big family

I joined GSK as my first job when I moved to Australia 6 years ago and the team made me feel so welcome. They are a great bunch of motivated and hard working individuals who really support each other.

Working at GSK

Every day is different, but with the support of both management and proactive behaviour of staff from different functions issues are never insurmountable. It is hard to maintain a good work life balance, however the atmosphere and friendliness of the team make being at work pleasurable, it is like having an extended family

Head office control

Work Flow

Working as a Project Administrator at GSK I have a variety of work to execute and I am constantly receiving more tasks. I always write down the specifications of the job to be executed and add to my list of work to do. I have co-works that are happy to assist me when needed, and I also make myself available. I have learned about program management and scheduling.

Pros

Good team work

Cons

Location

Room to improve

A typical day always consist of continuous loading of up to 15 trucks and the manager oversees the affairs of work which will be supervised by warehouse keeper but before that can be done, safety officers check and pass in trucks to be sure they follow the safety guidelines

Pros

No free lunch

Cons

Overtime
