wasted 3 years of my working life at Medi

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Cambridge, South West England, England (UK)

I worked at MedImmune full-time for more than 3 years

Prosthe benefits package is nice, but the base salary is POOR compared to other companies.

ConsPoor, weak & incompetent management right the way through. Undervalue and Overwork staff until they burn out. Huge competition between US and UK sites, leading to political situations which more often than not end up in doubled workload for the actual people in the lab. Horrific appraisal system, which is overhauled almost every year to no avail. All managers are strongly encouraged to give their staff a rating of 3 (on a scale of 1-5) which causes uproar at time of remuneration as practically everyone is worked to the bone and pushing themselves to the absolute limit.
A lot of people are looking to move to other companies, many people are unhappy, extremely low morale in the Cambridge site.

Advice to Senior Managementtoo late to salvage this sinking ship.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
