    Pros

    Nice facilities, well-funded labs, nice working environment, flexible benefits.

    Cons

    Forced-ranking produces toxic culture that focusses on picking on the negatives and finding easy victims. Works on a system of favourites and old-boys networks - it's more important who you're friends with than what you do. Culture is one of fear and paranoia.

    Constant reorganisations, cuts and closures.

    Rapidly declining revenues due to patent expiries make for a very uncertain future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forced ranking didn't work at Enron, it killed innovation at Microsoft and it's doing the same to AZ.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant  in  Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    Great benefits package, good colleagues to work with and a good place to grown and learn.

    Cons

    Horrible management, managers who don't listen or care about their staff. Also management is not open and honest with staff, thus not following the core values of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people, read the data from your surveys, the people are telling you something.
