    Pros

    Middle management lead effectively with vision and fairness for employees

    Cons

    Unfortunately the upper management act in a top down approach slashing a large number of jobs without understanding the cost to must win projects . Once the head count is reduced they attempt to reassemble a functional organization with key skills sets missing. The loyalty of the remaining generally lower paid staff is diminished and hence they seek opportunities elsewhere.The R&D morale is the lowest level it has ever been and this will impact innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your competitors who have outsourced their R&D and have since brought this work back in house. Since AZ has the facilities and equipment (Fixed assets) in hand the overall cost are lower to do the work in house, The gains in turnaround time and resulting high quality data are obviously essential for 1st in class and best in class medicines necessary to meet unmet medical needs.
