    Lots of change but more of the same

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, smart people who care for the mission of the company

    Cons

    Lots of change in leadership in the past several years with a promise to fix everything. Yet, more of the same: lack of development, poor managers, rigid leadership team, inefficient processes and systems. Not to mention HR is a joke.

    poor M&A decisions and big pharma leaders who don’t know what they’re doing

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, mission, purpose, and people

    Cons

    Work life balance is really bad and company not adding headcount. CFO is inexperienced and arrogant. M&A decisions were poorly made and future of Gilead is not positive. Wouldn’t be surprised if Gilead is acquired because stock is low and current acquisitions don’t look like they’ll take company to where it wants to go. Executive leadership team and CEO are very fake and inexperienced who have never been in similar leadership roles before they came to Gilead. They talk about “caring”for employees but actions don’t measure up and the board should look at bringing in more proven leaders. Do NOT work there. It’s doubtful if Gilead can grow like it wants to.
