    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People are very bright and definitely care about each other. Senior management seems set on getting the house in order, and if Pfizer doesn't acquire the company, I think the company will see success in 2017. Work/life balance is very good, with nice family events. Nice amount of vacation; every year I got a free week off between Christmas and New Year's Day. Challenging work on real science. Even with cuts, the benefits are still very good.

    Cons

    Cuts, cuts, cuts as the company goes through a patent drought. Research head has made clear that he does not believe in informatics, so the group has been heavily cut. Success of the company does not necessarily mean success for the employee or for their site. Layoffs and site closures are now frequent, and I don't think there is any company that is better at doing reorgs like clockwork every two years or less. Benefits and perks are cut every year. The company is focused on large molecules so the small-molecule sites, like Waltham, are even more at risk of closure. It's hard to advance here, particularly without relocating. There are deep cultural rifts between the US, UK and Sweden and they are not acknowledged or properly addressed; the result is a charged political environment where people don't understand each others' styles or meanings. A lot of people are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide whether you care about your employees. Maybe provide cultural training on differences between US, UK and Swedish preferences, although there have been many heavy-handed attempts at cultural training without much change. Train managers to look out for their staff.
