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

    Pros

    Colleagues are some of the best people I have worked with in my career. Ability to telework. My manager is great - she is a great mentor, always offers suggestions, helps out when I am swamped with work and can perform my job if necessary - how many managers around can do that or would offer to help out?

    Cons

    Upper Management constantly changing operating models. Lots of talk about empowerment but when you empower yourself to change something your are smacked on the hand because you didn't consult management beforehand. Overabundance of SOPs - so numerous that it interferes with everything.

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits, talented people to work with, convenient location to shopping and airport, good cafeteria food and cheap prices, low priced exercise gym on campus.

    Cons

    Management could provide more opportunity for input from staff to improve operations and be more open with strategy planning, creating better buyin and reaping good ideas from emplyees. Then cut the beurocracy and implement the ideas faster. Operations could be more efficient with less competion between geographical hubs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the pipeline and enforce accountabilty of management from discovery to clinical development. Continue toward better intergration/communication between commercial and discovery.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
