Im a student and was offered a contract with GSK OC , I am a student doing the Pharmaceutical and Manufacturing Operations course. I was offered to do as well as the work experience I gained, a full work contract and I jumped at them experience .
If you are married or have kids its a good place to earn a consistant wage with great benefits if you dont mind shift work. Not suitable for someone just finished school. Ideal for people late 20s onwards.
Negative for me was doing shift work as 12hrdays/nights can take its toll on the body both physically and mentally, that is the only concern, other than that its an excellent working environment if you keep the head down and do your work
GSK is a good company to work for some great people working there.Very friendly working culture.From Line Leaders,Supervisors and Mangers very helpfull always there to help.Really enjoying working there.Typical day is working long side Line Leader keeping components in machine.EHS,Quality checks every hour.
I produced powder formulas to make denture cleaning tablets . We had targets and cleaning duties everyday which had to be reached. The management were very approachable and four. The most enjoyable part of job was reaching targets everyday.
Rewards for reaching targets such as free breakfast or lunches.
The place is quality driven, people are very nice. One minus is that because it is a huge company HR is not very well organised. When you are new to the place you might wait for your login and training a long time, even two weeks.
