      Pros

      It's better than being unemployed.

      Cons

      This was the worst company I have ever worked for. The atmosphere felt hostile. There was very little collaboration between colleagues, and management were ruthless. Don't take positive reviews about gilead being at the forefront of science to seriously, they were not from my experience. There was a terrible blame, and fear based culture there. It felt like being in one of those dark work houses of old that you might read about or see on documentaries.

      For the most part, a professional work environment, with highly experienced/qualified workers

      Cons

      work politics, inter-departmental trade offs, management are invisible (or office bound). Too many middle management or "titled" layers.
