I have been working at AstraZeneca

Pros

AZ was by far the best company I have worked for with regards to work-life balance and benefits

Cons

Accomplishments are not enough. It is a very political environment. Your day-to-day work will not be valued unless you are making people aware of what you do on a regualr basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior leadership knows what is needing and they continue to move in the right direction. Keep doing what you are doing.

    When considering a career in pharma, your manager and teammates are more important than the company you work for.

    Pros

    There are many good people at AZ hope one of them becomes your manager. If you are good at checking boxes and role playing marketing spew. You'll love it!

    Cons

    There are too many sales managers that are unqualified to be in the job and more importantly who are only out for themselves - they can careless about your development or sucess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating check box robots and stop managing by fear, all you're creating is a bunch of politically correct kiss asses who are praying they don't get fired for speaking their mind or being allowed to do what is really right for the business.
