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

Pros

Met some of the best and brightest people here. The company has a great loyal work force despite the constant change

Cons

A growing feeling that commitment to the Company is 'old fashioned. Petty cost cutting has made it difficult to attend conferences, seminars etc to keep on top of the latest developments. Allowing Scientists to innovate and try ideas would work in any location

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop a blanket approach to re-organising the Company and being prepared to let the best go. Sort the IT out!

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good drugs to promote
    good company to work in CV
    promotion is somehow easy but only after 3 years of work with 100% average achievement

    Cons

    low salary
    bad management
    service made for doctors sucks
    dealing with other departments in the company is like dealing with a governmental organization in Egypt ( slow service, most of employees take a holiday randomly)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    higher promotions should be occupied by employees from the same scientific office , so not to lose loyalty to the company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
