I worked at AstraZeneca

Pros

Department was a close knit group and management was very knowledgeable and fair. Fully matching 401K and decent company funded retirement plan.

Cons

Decision to close research site in Wilmington. Hard to get promoted in scientific ladder. Asked to do more with less.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember you need scientists to discover new compounds and to make sure they are safe. Don't close any mores sites in the US.
