I have been working at MedImmune

Pros

Coworkers are smart, hard working, and friendly.
Employees have many opportunities to work with people from outside their department.

Cons

Management does not care/ acknowledge good quality work. Only get involved when things go wrong.

Employees are underpaid and overworked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management does not fully understand the manufacturing process; how long it takes and effort to complete specific tasks. Schedule is unrealistic.

No opinion of CEO

    Current Employee - Manager in Gaithersburg, MD

    I have been working at MedImmune

    Pros

    -Nice cafeteria; expensive food
    -Nice facilities; temp control an issue in some buildings
    -Nice Fitness center
    -work at home allowed for some positions

    Cons

    --Employees stressed with multiple projects
    -They give out lots of 2's in evaluations (needs improvement ) so they don';t have to pay out bonuses.Many employees shafted this year
    -HR is not effective and slow to respond to basic HR issues. Who ever heard of an HR that does not review job descriptions. Why let managers hire people who do not have qualifications for the position
    -hiring freeze in place
    -no travel allowed, people cannot take external training anymore and they also balk at paying tuition reimbursement
    -many people I know are looking for another job but feel stuck in Maryland with few career options/companies in the area
    -inxperienced managers; bad behavior bullying tolerated
    -AZ collaboration not working out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Pay equal salaries and give promotional opportunities to females, over 40, experienced people and minorities
    -Ever heard of implementing policies to retain people?
    -Ever heard of equal opportunity?
    -Pay attention to dysfunctional HR
    -Don't expect people to perform after witholding bonus
    -Please read Focus reviews and make managers implement improvements and offer career counseling (if they are capable)

    Horrible Senior Management and HR Treats Employees with Disrespect

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - R&D Manager in Gaithersburg, MD
    Former Employee - R&D Manager in Gaithersburg, MD

    I worked at MedImmune

    Pros

    Ability to work on biotech R&D and close to Washingington DC metro area.

    Cons

    Terrible senior management team and HR. Discriminates against women and minorities at the senior levels of the company. Very much a "good old boys" club in management. Company is being completely mismanaged by senior management and has been rated by business analysts as a total flop of an acquisition by AstraZeneca.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would not recommend to work at this place. No long term career opportunity at MedImmune.
