Key Account Manager (Former Employee) – Brentford, Greater London – 24 May 2018
GSK was an excellent company to learn the foundations of account management and much more. Heavy investment in training and development and clear structures. Excellent communication from top management and surrounded by highly motivated teams.
Compliance Manager (Current Employee) – Worthing, West Sussex – 19 July 2017
Worked for GSK for over 21 years in total. They look after their people very well and have a great structure for personal development. Take pride in their community investment both in the UK and overseas supporting employees who want to help others and actively encouraging participation with their Orange Day initiative. Highly regulated which can be frustrating at times however very satisfying knowing that whatever you are doing is adding value to ensure safe medicines are prescribed to patients.
Personal Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 12 July 2017
I worked at GSK for approx. Politics always change in a large organisation like this, but I always enjoyed working here. We were very lucky to have our own small scale supermarket, cashpoints, a restaurant, a coffee bar and a gym to name a few. A great place to work and I am proud to have been a part of the organisation for so long.
Pharmaceutical Assistant (Former Employee) – Essex – 11 July 2017
The people I worked were great. Sometimes the deadlines were unrealistic but I always hit my goals. Day started with opening emails to check updates from around the world, the to morning meeting. Then routine chores. Did my college course so learnt a lot about pharmaceutical industry. Management were very mixed some very good some no really around when needed. Workplace culture change from being very friendly and happy during SB reign to the merger with GSK it changed and not for the better lost its personal touch. Hardest part of the job was being held up waiting for colleagues abroad due to time zones. Knowing what I did made a difference to somebodys life.

Research Analyst (Former Employee) – Ware, Hertfordshire, UK – 22 June 2017
This was the ideal job, as you got to work from home but still be able to communicate with the team. the pay was very good for my age. however the change in staff and management meant my job was constantly under review and tactics were used to make sure people worked harder even though the progress we made was a lot better than it had ever been. too much demand and not enough respect from new management.
Interesting position in the pharmaceutical industry
Export Executive (Former Employee) – Brentford, Greater London – 13 June 2017
The role was extremely focused on the logistics side of the charitable programmes from GSK. I have learned a lot on how to trade with third world companies and found great rewards in supplying medicines from laboratories to people in need.
Dental Territory Representative (Former Employee) – South Wales – 12 June 2017
Great role selling to Dental Professionals. Good career prospects and well paid salary package. GSK culture was to promote from within and an ethical sales approach. Well respected by customers and competitors alike.
A typical day within the laboratory would be in a routine testing lane, performing one of the many quality assurance tests. This may consist of using automated equipment or more manual based test methods. From working in quality assurance I have a very keen eye for detail and following protocols and procedures has become second nature to me. The workplace environment is extremely positive and development is widely encouraged within the company. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is learning new methods and procedures within the lab and also helping out with investigation work where needed. The job can be challenging when business demands are high, for example a high workload in the lab at the same time as equipment issues could mean working in a high pressure environment for a few weeks which is sometimes hard to deal with after a prolonged period of time.
Huge sense of 'one team'
Occasionally working under pressure for prolonged periods of time
HR Data Management Analyst (temp assignment) (Former Employee) – Uxbridge, London, United kingdom – 31 May 2017
A good multi-national employer with many benefits and perks. I was only working in a temporary capacity, so this was limited. Good management, but as would be expected with such a large company there are areas that are somewhat disjointed. Good content but using the systems sometimes resulted repetitive tasks.
