Management at GlaxoSmithKline

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

Open plan office so very approachable and friendly. Depending on the individual offer mentorship proactively or reactively. Very good internal communication (open and transparent) and a well-defined and embedded feedback and recognition model.

My manager was often in meetings so I would need to arrange time to meet up if I wanted to. Praise and recognition was done every week during the stand-up meeting

Managers are friendly and always accessible. They are not secluded from the area you're in and are always about. They're easy to just walk up to and ask questions. Recognition is always given at weekly meetings where everyone is encouraged to recognise one another.

Lower level management are very accessible, but higher level management are less so. However they do try to be more accessible however time constraints occasionally does not allow.

Overall I think that the leadership team interacts with the rest of the organisation well and people are recognised for their contributions informally or through the employee recognition program (cash awards)
