Pros & Cons

  • There are so many opportunities to grow and gain new experiences. There is so much diversity in the workplace which means everyone is always respected.
  • Great culture, friendly people, supportive environment
  • GSK has a very good culture - very encouraging and always looking for ways to help people develop.
  • The people and culture make working for GSK very enjoyable
  • I loved the opportunities and responsibility given to the IBLs, we were truly valued members of the organisation and were a key part of creating the fun and supportive culture that GSK has
  • The opportunity to develop into areas that are of great interest, as well as the overall team environment.
  • Very fast paced environment
  • The role was sometimes too repetitive.
  • The work itself wasn't aligned to my work goals and career aspirations, possibly the job description wasn't accurate when I applied.
  • Complex structures and multiple locations made it hard to service all businesses equally
  • Time management
  • Pay is low, not many opportunities to move/ grow

Career Prospects
Unfortunately for many IBLs, there is no availability to stay on after the program. For IBLs who need to return to uni, it would have been nice if there was an opportunity to remain part time (whether in the office or in the field)

I was lucky enough to lead this initiative and we are doing so much in so many different areas including gender equality, cultural diversity, Aboriginal and Torres straight islander equality and in particular LGBTQI+ equality

Culture
GSK Australia, Abbotsford is an excellent office to work in and you are surrounded by passionate, outgoing, kind and intelligent people. Working in healthcare, people are typically very caring in nature, which I believe to be true of GSK. There are plenty of opportunities to go out and socialise, such as team lunches, "directorate days," office and cultural celebration days.

Location is great. Dress for your day has been implemented which makes the work day much more comfortable.

Recruitment
I enjoyed the assessment centre, however I found the online video to be a struggle and intimidating. I personally believed that if I was able to pass the video interview, I could show my personality and skillset much better than I could online.
