Toxic corporate culture

Senior Research Scientist (Former Employee)
Alderley, England (UK)

I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 10 years

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

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

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