I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Open communication is welcome. I had many opportunities to showcase my abilities and skills to senior level management. Work-life balance is a high priority and AZ will accommodate your needs so that you and your family are happy. The company offers career advancement that I believe is more fair and just than other pharmaceutical companies.

Cons

I have seen people dismissed for actions that could have been resolved with improvement plans. They are quick to fire good employees.

    Pros

    Strong products and product recognition from our customers. AstraZeneca provides so many tools to help you plan and sell. I appreciate their high standard for ethics and emphasis, "Do the Right Thing".

    Cons

    Overemphasis on personal development which is a distraction to business planning and selling in the field. There is no uniform way how to sell pharmaceuticals or selling in general. Different managers I worked for had his/her own sales theory which made it confusing for the whole team and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Field Reps are paid to create and work a business plan in support of marketing's brand strategy. Let us do what we do best, sell in the field. Don't distract our business planning and field time with the individual development plan and confusing scorecard template.
