    Great work/life balance; too top heavy however.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Gaithersburg, MD
    Current Employee - Engineer in Gaithersburg, MD

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The IT management is great. A lot of the bosses are either EU based or based in Cambridge. As a result, they have a very good work/life balance. Their philosophy of allowing you to work from home so you can get your house in order and allowing you to work on stuff while in the office lessens the stress and overall allows you to feel like management cares about you.

    Cons

    The management structure is very top-heavy. I report to a lot of different bosses and can rotate between managers very quickly for different projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your intentions on converting contractors clearly.

    Current Employee - Scientist I in Gaithersburg, MD
    Current Employee - Scientist I in Gaithersburg, MD

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Very patient focused, which is inspiring. A little bit unclear how MedImmune will fit into the AZ culture in the long run, but for now the MedI/biotech culture is alive and kicking. Fun happy hours. Nice people. Nice amenities on campus with more planned.

    Cons

    Some disconnect between AZ and MedImmune that can create problems, especially when dealing with late stage projects. Still figuring some things out on the late stage/commercialization side of development. Getting a bit crowded at HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sell the company.
