    It would take a lot for me to leave this company.

    Research Associate II (Current Employee)
    Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsGood salary and benefits. The biotech culture is alive. Happy hours, off hour functions, and a real sense of family are some of the things you notice that make MedImmune stand out from other companies.

    ConsSome of the management isnt the strongest. Its very hard to get into MedI but once you get in, its also hard to get people out. It seems like with all the potential out in the workforce, MedI holds on to some people who may not be worth holding on to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote based on performance, fire based on performance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    As an intern, my group was very helpful around the lab and the workload was challenging but not overwhelming.

    Co-op Student In Analytical Biochemistry-Development (Former Employee)
    Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsMedimmune offered very good financial compensation for its interns. At $33 per hour and opportunities for overtime along with a $1500 per month living stipend. Also, the parties that Medimmune had for Halloween and big launches are second to none. As far as working at Medimmune, work space is plentiful and supplies are always accessible to allow for great science.

    ConsThe only downside of Medimmune was having to leave and go back to finish school.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep having the entertaining company meetings. Its excites the company and brews camaraderie.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great work/life balance; too top heavy however.

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsThe IT management is great. A lot of the bosses are either EU based or based in Cambridge. As a result, they have a very good work/life balance. Their philosophy of allowing you to work from home so you can get your house in order and allowing you to work on stuff while in the office lessens the stress and overall allows you to feel like management cares about you.

    ConsThe management structure is very top-heavy. I report to a lot of different bosses and can rotate between managers very quickly for different projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare your intentions on converting contractors clearly.

    Great company with innovative biotech pipeline

    Scientist I (Current Employee)
    Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsGreat benefits. Very patient focused, which is inspiring. A little bit unclear how MedImmune will fit into the AZ culture in the long run, but for now the MedI/biotech culture is alive and kicking. Fun happy hours. Nice people. Nice amenities on campus with more planned.

    ConsSome disconnect between AZ and MedImmune that can create problems, especially when dealing with late stage projects. Still figuring some things out on the late stage/commercialization side of development. Getting a bit crowded at HQ.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't sell the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
