    Current Employee - Scientist I in Gaithersburg, MD

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Don't sell the company.

    Disappointing Company

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant II in Gaithersburg, MD
    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant II in Gaithersburg, MD

    I worked at MedImmune as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent salary for a contractor.

    Cons

    Office culture is bad with gossip and office politics. Hires from the outside instead of hiring the contractors. Middle management is not good..poor communication. Contractors are treated like second-class citizens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid the lazy employees and hire the hard-working contractors.

    A company with no standard and fairness

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Gaithersburg, MD
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Gaithersburg, MD

    I worked at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    The benefits and bonus are not bad for the past few years. The gym is pretty good if you use it.

    Cons

    There is no cross board standard within company, within department. The head of the department is the king. Whatever policy or working standard can be override by the king.
    Promotion is a mess, only based on whether you are the favorite of the boss. No fairness at all, even relatively. Boss likes you, he can hire somebody for you even you work part time with a bachelor's degree. If boss does not like you, even you have 10 years of experience with a Ph.D. degree, you are on you own.

    Salary is below industry average.

    HR really sucks. No respect to employees. They can promise you something when you are hired and later on would not honor it. So be careful, make sure everything is on paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moral is so low but I guess management does not really care. There is employee survey every year but the concerns from employees are the same every year.

    I worked at MedImmune as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great office building, interesting company, good perks of being an employee. I had a good experience with my manager and group.

    Cons

    Hard to go anywhere without an advanced degree. There are a lot of levels of middle management. There is a lot of time spent on meetings.

    Pros

    Great company with smart, motivated people. Company on the upswing and serious about its mission.

    Cons

    Maryland. Maryland is not for people that enjoy freedom of movement. Its small, urbanized environment (with speed cams, stop cams, traffic cams) can be confining to folks that like wide open areas and don't like the idea of "big brother". Also, the cost of living, especially housing, is ridiculously high.
