I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good facilities, benefits and great people. Opportunities to work truly globally and positive work life balance.

Cons

Depending on function, there can be limited career progression opportunities, however if you work hard, and drive your personal career development, you are typically rewarded.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really think through change strategies before initiating. Give organisational changes a chance to embed before re-thinking and changing structures/ strategies. Engage with employees in advance on proposed organisational designs.

    I worked at AstraZeneca as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent working environment, very professional team, open to new ideas, empowerment of their collaborators, a very good work and life balance

    Cons

    In the region, they are not too large therefore there's not enough available spots for new entries at the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going like this!

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of people with a real passion for the work AZ does - this surprised me.
    Good pay and benefits
    Good development opportunities

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement as the company is contracting
    A little bureaucratic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help people plan their careers better and provide more structure - good seasoned professionals will work there and move on if there is no opportunity, the "lifers" and those with less ambition will stay and that doesn't help a company respond to changing business needs flexibily
