    I worked at MedImmune full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong, profitable organization with great benefits and beautiful headquarters.

    Cons

    Management from imploding AZ HQ brought in to ruin the MedImmune culture. Organization is top heavy, and there's lots of place to hid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your team members have been at the company for more than 10 or 12 years, then they are most likely riding a wave that will crash, like Delaware did. So where are the fresh, great innovators you said you wanted to lead, to really lead, the company to new levels of discovery and commercialization? Go and find them...

    Pros

    Friendly work environment & majority of the people are great to work with

    Cons

    a lot of people work here think they are entitled to whatever just because they have been here a long time and promotions do not make any sense` the people who should be promoted and do all the work are overlooked and the ones who do nothing and do every little thing the boss wants get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair across the board with promotions and be open and honest and "transparent" as you claim you are
