Pros

Good benefits, good people... There is a fantastic culture at AZ and it shows in its people. They are good with work life balance.

Cons

The company is downsizing in the manufacturing market and the pipeline is not that great, but they are investing heavily in research

    Pros

    Benefits are great, Pay is average to above average. Some very capable professionals working there. Lucky to live in center of my territory - minimal travel

    Cons

    Very poor leadership! Pipeline is not nearly as robust as it was 5 years ago. Constant change of direction regarding sales approach. Typical pharma - lots of busy work! Always the feeling of looking over your shoulder, waiting for the next lay off!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with a selling model instead of checking with the experts! These "experts" are only trying to keep their jobs - of course they are going to change their selling approach every 6 months!

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

    Pros

    Salary and annual bonus, flex-time

    Cons

    Most everything else, especially culture of rank and yank

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the old guard and bring in all new people with ideas of their own, less willing to delegate all decisions to consultants

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
