AstraZeneca in a Death Spiral

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wilmington, DE

ProsGenerous compensation and benefits, nice facilities, business-casual attire.

ConsSuccessive rounds of layoffs offset only by new positions in China; recent product failures and weak pipeline including at MedImmune biotech arm; current near-ban on travel, relocations, hiring from the outside and use of outside consultants; timid, risk-averse management; in-bred, protect-each-other culture at the C-suite level.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in fresh blood from other pharmas and, ideally, other industries.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
