    Pros

    There are some really good people left in the organization, very good training and great benefits. The company treats employees fairly. There are some really good upper managers

    Cons

    The industry is changing, more medical facilities are locking out pharma reps every day. the company is very concerned about compliance so that cuts down on creativity. There is a lack of innovative new products. There are some really bad upper managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give local managers and reps the ability to adjust to the local environment.

    Pros

    On the whole, AstraZeneca has great people. There are a lot of smart people, particularly in R&D, who know their jobs and actually like working *with* other people.

    If you're interested in healthcare or scientific research, want a seriously challenging career and are among the best at what you do, AZ is a good place to spend your time...

    AZ also takes work/life balance seriously. So if you have a family, whether that's children or parents or siblings, AZ management tends to be sympathetic to those needs.

    Cons

    A more complex web of matrix management you won't find outside of a government bureaucracy. This provides a huge cost in speed of decision making and in accountability.

    Giant patent cliff is coming. Heavy reliance on outsourcing (though this has good points, as well as bad).
