Great career up until last 7 years when company culture changed
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FL21 September 2017
Post CIA GSK changed management and lost focus of how to motivate ad drive sales. Leadership became too involved in self promotion and rewarding those that "gave good meeting" instead of those that produced results.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
poor senior leadership

Very laid back
Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PA21 September 2017
GSK is a very laid back place to work. With it being so large though there was a lot of bureaucracy, and it was sometimes difficult to collaborate across groups because it was global.

Opportunité de développement
Délégué médical (Former Employee) –  Abidjan19 September 2017
De nombreuses opportunités de développement existent à GSK.
J'ai participé à plusieurs formations ( alert driving, code of concuct, ijsfa etc....)
Le management de l'entreprise ainsi que la culture du lieu de travail ne sont pas bien comprises par les employés par manque de sensibilisation ou d'information.
La hiérarchie semble un peu loin de la réalité de la force de vente.
L'aspect le plus agréable est la formation et l'environnement sociale
Pros
repas subventionnés
Cons
manque de communication

Has work to do
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Kansas19 September 2017
Company realigns all the time. Managers are inconsistent. Great starting salary but bonus structure is determined by your relationship with your manager not your skills. They have unfortunately created an atmosphere of cut throat selling among teams. Teammates are pitted against each other to have the highest rating to receive a bonus. Territories are large and there is no mentoring, flexibility or good relationships among teams. If you land on a close knit team, you will be excluded from activities. I have had 6 managers in less than 3 years.

Field sales with a lot of support.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Eugene, OR17 September 2017
It has been many years since I have worked for SmithKline Beecham. The pharmaceutical industry has changed since I have been a part of it. At that time the company was an industry leader with fantastic benefits, company cars, expense accounts, and product and customer support. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to talk about pharmaceutical products to my customers which became friends.
Pros
company car, benefits, expense accounts, nice meetings
Cons
a lot of time spent on your own doing paperwork and research
