Current Employee - Director in Wilmington, DE

Approves of CEO

Pros

Great collaborative culture. Good benefits.

Cons

"Globalization" mismanaged. Seems to come down as mandate in the guise of efficiencies, rather than a process that could be more inclusive. Regional differences are sometimes discounted.

Advice to Management

Manage change better. Sometimes initiatives are pushed down in the name of globalization that do not take into account the cultural differences between regions.

    Current Employee - Pharmaceuticals Sales Specialist in Durham, NC
    Current Employee - Pharmaceuticals Sales Specialist in Durham, NC
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation, Because Pharmaceutical sales reps are the most overpaid individuals for what they do.

    Cons

    There is no marketability to your skill outside of the pharmaceutical industry. Business to Business sales companies and medical sales companies laugh at the way pharmaceutical sales is managed and operated

    Advice to Management

    Outsource this position and make medication more affordable to the people of the USA. Because other the samples these representative bring to the doctors they provide no value. And while they may enjoy the money that they make when they get laid off or terminated for any little thing they will see they are the most unmarketable individuals known to other employers.

    Current Employee - Communications Manager in Wilmington, DE
    Current Employee - Communications Manager in Wilmington, DE

    Pros

    Benefits, work/life balance, quality of coworkers with regard to dedication and competence. AZ is committed to staying focused on bringing new medicines to the market and paying attention to any possible safety issues early on to enhance patient safety. While profits are important to all businesses, AstraZeneca puts patient safety first.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape involved with all aspects of job performance... many forms and processes for everything. There is a very corporate feel about AZ... it's definitely not a place where you can feel that you are part of a family (which can be both good and bad).

    Advice to Management

    Keep staying ahead of the industry with regard to how AZ handles the changing environment. Make the paperwork associated with performance management less of a burden on employees.
