    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Struggling to think of any

    Cons

    Clique culture. Senior leaders only promote their friends, or demotivate their teams by under valuing them, and over valuing external talent. Upgrade job roles when people leave, by as much as 3 grades with no change in the actual work, so that they can provide roles to their chosen ones. Completely out of touch when it comes to resourcing, everyone is overworked and over burdened.
