Pros

AstraZeneca cares a lot about keeping their employees happy. They allow you to be flexible as long as you can still meet the company's goals and execution guidelines. There is a lot if growth opportunity if you are willing to work hard and re- locate. There employ a lot of smart people so you can learn a ton.

Cons

There are not a lot of growth opportunities if you are not willing to re-locate or happen to live close to DE. The workload can get very heavy very heavy at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick with a specific strategy for a bit longer so you can truly evaluate it's effectiveness before changing direction.

    Pros

    Great people, for the most part good work-life balance, flexible schedules, diversity focused. Potential for remote working once/week.

    Cons

    Difficult to keep focused when the ax is always swinging over head, due to cuts or potential cuts. The uncertainty however is what most in pharma are experiencing today. Flatter and flatter organization good and bad. Promotions are taking longer and longer.

    It used to be a great place to work - bring on the re-org.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits, medical benefit is awesome

    Cons

    Cliquish and bureaucratic. Company on the decline; currently undergoing major re-org, hopefully this one is effective. Past re-orgs – same people still doing same thing, just new PPT slides with new bubbles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your going to restructure, make sure it reaches all areas - upside down and inside out. Plenty of dead wood.. Have employees reapply for their jobs; ensure they are compentent fit.
