    GSK is staffing up a facility in Richmond, VA and created this page to share the info. It includes a link to search the jobs at that site, which will be updated with more new jobs.
    www.gskrichmondcareers.com
    What I see there now looks like mostly scientific roles, but there should be more coming. They said they’ll be hiring for 150+ jobs, and only about 20 are listed on the site so far.
    I don’t have any connections at the site and don’t know anything about the jobs - I just do some minimal remote support for IT stuff used there. Wanted to pass on the info in case anyone knows someone who is looking.

    would be nice if they included pay range, so i could see exactly how they'd not be paying me enough to move to VA with their current politics :)

    It was announced publicly in the recent past that GSK plans to split into 2 separate companies after a while - one Pharma and one consumer healthcare. The info at the URL in my original post says this Richmond site is one of 3 global R&D hubs for consumer healthcare (as opposed to R&D for pharmaceuticals).

    I’ll see if I can find official info for how that process works. I don’t know if you have to go thru the interview process to find out the pay offered. If I can find an update, I’ll post it here.

    Please keep this thread clean and relevant, or I’ll have to delete it and just ask folks to PM me if they want the info. (That’s the corporate rule, nothing personal. I don’t get anything out of posting this - I just heard that jobs were available and wanted to share the info.)

    I believe that is the case. They're a similar industry as where I'm at, and we don't post salary ranges. Offers are only made to candidates after an interview.

    Pay, however, in this industry is typically much better than the average salary for the respective regions.
