Well paid for roles offered with attractive benefits. Poorly managed at the ground level
QA Scientist (Current Employee) –  South East10 November 2018
GSK are an a barely adequate employer if you are looking for a 'basic' role in the GMS buisness. There is much talk of employee empowerment, living their values, engendering a culture of respect and trust and employee recognition.

The truth is at as a lower-level employee this is false. The staff turnover is almost unbelievable, especially considering the level of training and expertise that should be required to work in such and environment. The focus is solely on short-term money saving, to the extent that long term risk is disregarded in order to meet immediate targets. There is no clear direction from any level in the organisation.

In all respects, especially with safety, there is a growing culture that the craks are papered over with poorly developed CAPA with no thought to longevity or solving systemic issues.

In brief, in my experience, GSK values and culture work well on paper. However, the reality is that operations will do everything in their power to seem like the brief is being met with little regard to quality or safety with a specific disregard for employee wellbeing or development.
Pros
Best overall salary/benefit package availabe for entry-level employees
Cons
Terrible workplace and culture where politics come before quality or safety

Enjoyable.working under pressure. So many politics. Management does not encourage staff opinions. The very conservative mindset of the management. No progression. SO much staff turnover because of the management.
