    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Colaborative work environment
    - Flexibilty

    Cons

    - Weak pipeline
    - Too top heavy with exec. management
    - No job security
    I had to reapply for the job for which I was hired three months after starting. I subsequently went through two additional departmental re-orgs, before I was offered another position at another company and left on my own and haven't looked back since. No one wants to work in such an unstable environment, if they can help it.

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

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

    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.
