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

Pros

Good benefits, but that about it.

Cons

Weak management, definitely on the decline and looking hard to save money wherever they can. No pride in the work, just a paycheck mentality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No one believes you anymore.

    Big Pharma, small pipeline, uncertain future - poor management!

    Former Employee - Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative in Boston, MA

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (more than 5 years)

    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!
