    I worked at Gilead Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company. 401k matching.

    Cons

    Favouriticism, stock has leveled off. Even though half of the team is remote, does not allow in house people to work remotely at least once a week.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your contributors rather than pushing your favorites who have not much experience other than what is gained here.
