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

    Pros

    Medimmune 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep having the entertaining company meetings. Its excites the company and brews camaraderie.

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Some 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 Management

    Promote based on performance, fire based on performance.

    I worked at MedImmune as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment was fabulous. As an intern, I would arguably say that I learned more there in one summer than 4 years at university. The people are so innovative, practical, and hardworking, so it was a receptive environment for progress and novel ideas to create realistic, efficient solutions. The team that I worked with showed me what true teamwork and collaboration is supposed to look like, and how it can affect the outcome and timeline of product and success. The happy hour every Friday is just icing on the cake.

    Cons

    These R&D positions require long hours and abundant sources of patience, but I feel as a scientist, that should be a given.

    Advice to Management

    The management that I saw was professional, incredibly patient, and willing to impart knowledge, and even make me (as an intern) feel included in the projects and gain insight into what it would realistically look like working there.
