    Pros

    Even in the midst of all the troubles with the change in organization, AZ has treated all of us well. There are lots of talented people working well together to do good science to help develop medicines.

    Cons

    As with any large company, the bureaucracy can be a bit unnerving. There is also more of a line between science and management than I feel should be in a Pharmaceutical company.

    Advice to Management

    Faster, clearer communications. Don't bother telling us what you are going to do regarding a unit, then wait fourteen months to do something about it.

    Hay days behind it, hard to watch the culture become more and more cutthroat with budgetary woes.
