    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Parking, bagels, gym, FTE and contractors who stay even though they are managed by incompetent, over-reactive, and newly appointed managers!

    Cons

    Managers who can not manage staff as they do not have the confidence to develop staff vs. micromanage.
    Hiring by middle managers that have no idea what the position requires so they just put in bodies that need excessive training so they remain dependent on the manager for direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not allow middle management to continue treating staff like dogs and remove the new managers who are running in circles chasing their own tails in these groups. You are losing extremely qualified staff!!!

    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beer on Fridays, bagels on Wednesdays, ok salary & benefits.

    Cons

    Clinical staff is not treated with respect. Politics before practicality. Management by fear and threats. No time to see my kids because there is too much work to do. Long time Associate Directors and above need to be taught how to manage and treat people with respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in fresh blood at AD level and above. Old guard is more concerned with protecting their own assets than managing their function. SVP of Clinical needs to open his eyes and realize when he is being played.
