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

I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

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

Cons

Company 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 ManagementAdvice

Get away from micromanaging and allow representatives sell.

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for 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.
