Thread regarding GlaxoSmithKline PLC layoffs

Senior Management

At GSK there was a distinct void in leadership at the Senior Management level that showed a lack of expertise and care in their field.

While i was there morale was constantly low because seasoned employees were constantly looking over their shoulder for fear of being pushed out by management who showed extreme favoritism and felt threatened by their progress.

Also there is an appalling lack of coaching by the senior management team. They have preached “ open door “ policy, but that is far from the truth. Instead of mentoring those under them it’s a “sink or swim” attitude. Very disheartening for someone who truly wants to make a difference within GSK.

I started working at "Glaxo" back in 1989, It was a fabulous Company to work at, They spent Money like it was water, They didn't care about how much stuff cost, Then in 1995 they Merged with Burroughs Wellcome and the Moral was still high, But after the Merger with SmithKline Beecham the whole operation went in the toilet, After that they went OTC just to survive, Very few "Blockbuster" Medications, Then came the layoffs, The sale of Buildings, etc. When I started with "Glaxo" it was the second largest Pharmaceutical company in the world, Now it's like Seventh and sinking like the Titanic, I wouldn't be surprised if the leave the U.S. altogether.
