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

Pros

Passionate people who care about healthcare. New direction to drive better medicines through innovations. Bringing in a lot of new people and new skills.

Cons

Matrix organisation, and lots of change. Lots of TLAs (three letter acronyms). Obviously the patent cliff is coming but they have an external focus now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be bold !

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Relaxed atmosphere. Fantastic site and facilities at Alderley Park.

    Cons

    large number of people who have only ever worked for AZ/Zeneca/ICI. No idea of outside world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the right decisions in the clinic. Invest more in scientists and getting young hungry people in rather than relying on an aging non engaged workforce.

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great perks, Science oriented environment, Opens up great future prospects, Known for its brand value in market, A good mix of experienced and fresher crowd to work with

    Cons

    Can sometimes be pressurized situation, need to keep up with certain expectations that are unrealistic in terms of time-frame as well as nature of work, Very little exposure outside of the assigned area of work which can in long term be impeding to growth; inspite of being science based, this role is still ends up being marketing and sales driven

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better define the expectations and nature of work from medical advisors, involve the RMAs more in sceintific activity, give more hands on exposure in things apart from just marketing activities for guys at regional level
