The strong attachment to the Values which all the employees live by and practicing it in their core business. The company provided lot many facilities to the employees, have strong focus on diversity and inclusion, lots of skill development program, employee friendly policies, long timers for whom GSK may b the first and last company many old generation people call it retirement company as well, GSK globally allows part time work as well to follow your passion, chances of international relocation ofcourse with your performance. Salary of the employees may be low but they seem to be ok doing the same job since ages with little increment year in year.

Dislikes

There is lot of good for the company but the numbers don't talk that way neither the business performance. There is always supply chain issue with shortage of some product or not. Highly process driven company so much so that business, people can also be put at stake when it comes to process. The processes have made people closeted and not to look beyond the scope. Most of the dept works around the fear of audit hence stifling creativity and innovation. From market perspective the old pharma company which is continuously sliding in rank, no innovation except in Vaccines, wants to play against the tide of market but with no differentiating strategy. 100% internally driven talent making it you scratch my back I will yours culture. Since this is global company most of the initiatives are global driven and may or may not align with local country needs. This is true especially for global support functions whose work is merely coordination and facilitation. Leaders do try to keep the morale high of employee by bringing in changes or stuff but the hygiene factors remains the same thereby maintaining the status quo.

Flexible working hours and work from home options are there but looked down upon if taken frequently. Company has to truly evolve as modern employer in practices and not just in paper

Dislikes

ZERO JOB SECURITY. CAREER GROWTH - U JOIN AS MR AND YOU DIE AS MR WHILE TRAVELLING ALL AROUND INDIA WITH TRANSFERS IF YOU DONT LISTEN TO YOUR HIGHER UPS. SALARY APPRAISALS FOR THE UNION HAPPENS IN 3 YEARS AND TAKES ANOTHER 3 YEARS TO COME INTO FORCE. SALARY APPRAISAL FOR MANAGEMENT HAPPENS EVERY YEAR AND THEY OFFER PEANUTS COATED WITH CHOCOLATE. POLITICS IS EVERYWHERE. GOOD PERFORMING PEOPLE ARE MADE TO LEAVE JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN HAMPER THE POSITION OF THEIR HIGHER UPS. VERY RESTRICTIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT. LOT OF BUREAUCRACY. SO MANY SOPS THAT ITS LIKE IN TRAINING YOU ARE TAUGHT TO TAME A LION AND ON FIELD YOU ARE LOADED WITH SO MANY SOP'S ON HOW NOT TO TAME A LION. WORK ENVIRONMENT IS COOL, ITS SO COOL THAT NO ONE ASKS YOU FOR TARGET DIRECTLY, HOWEVER THEY WILL PRESSURIZE YOU INDIRECTLY FOR SALE. NOW THEY ARE COPYING INDIAN COMPANY TACTICS SO AS TO IMPRESS THEIR sh. INNOVATION WAS LOST SINCE &REW CAME INTO PICTURE

World class company with ethics and work culture.
But few managers and Senior colleagues make this environment dirty and politicized the conditions.
If you can withstand in these situations you are welcome to this medical sales world.
This job is now no more respectful and no ethics left.
I suggest to pursue some other profession who are seeking job in this field.

Dislikes

Unnecessary work pressure, unethical work environment, low salaries, dominant Superiors and no self-respect.

Work

Very challenging job, meet 220 doctors in 3-4 towns per month, manage day to day sales productivity, cold calls to 12 customer per day, booking and some time supplies to same.
Require lot of soft skills and patients.
Waiting for hours to get 10 second.

The company having lots of politics. Managers not value the individuals unique strengths. Appraisal is in managers hand so if you are having good relation with manager then you get the good appraisal.
