Company was wonderful for first few years but as company grew it micro managed and did not reward efforts appropriately.

Professional Sales Specialist (Former Employee)

ProsStarting salary was competitive with other companies. Benefits were very good as well as the Company Car. R&D kept pipeline full of new drugs.

ConsCompany grew and lost touch with Sales Representatives. Reduction in bonus payouts. Micromanagement hurt productivity. Some managers were not good in management role. Just because someone was good at sales it does not mean they will do well in management.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet away from micromanaging and allow representatives sell.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Wilmington, DE

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for 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.… Advice to Senior Management: If your going to restructure, make sure it reaches all areas - upside down and inside out.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
