Initially challenging and invigorating, then all about keeping your manager happy.

Global Medical Affairs Manager (Former Employee)
Wilmington, DE

ProsNice facilities and benefits. There are many systems in place so coming up to speed can be like following a template. Also, marketing budgets are adequate. They have a very customer oriented approach to marketing.

ConsSometimes the systems can smother you and they are always coming up with a new way of doing a certain aspect of marketing (branding, positioning, etc) that takes on a life of it's own. The biggest con is that people are in constant fear of their jobs and can't speak freely. The company culture changed greatly (in a negative direction) in the 5 years that I was there.

Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly listen to those closest to the customer and be open to ideas. Welcome that one who isn't going with the flow -- he/she might be the only one brave enough to speak up.

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

    Good People with Big Challenges

    Informatics Scientist (Current Employee)
    Waltham, MA

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


    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… Cons: A more complex web of matrix management you won't find outside of a government bureaucracy. This provides a huge cost in speed… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
