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

    Pros

    MedImmune has a great internship program. There were about a 100 of us this summer from many different universities. Everyone at MedImmune is friendly and willing to help. I truly learned a lot from the three months I was there. The company has a good balance of work life and social life - there is happy hour every Friday. Also, the cafeteria food is delicious. Overall, fantastic experience!

    Cons

    The internship program does not extend full-time offers to any of its interns, so there were no career opportunities for us.

    I have been working at MedImmune

    Pros

    Good benefiits, satisfaction of working for a company that is developing life-saving medicines.

    Cons

    Uncertainty abounds as a result of IT's major reorganization/transformation. Some processes that Medi IT had developed are being replaced by new processes for the global AstraZeneca IT organization. In some instances IT has taken several years worth of steps backwards. There's more uncertainty with the possibility of a takeover by Pfizer.

    If you can navigate the bureaucracy you should do well, otherwise this company may be a challenge to work for.

    I worked at MedImmune (more than an year)

    Pros

    You are brought to believe you are doing good work as part of the team that brings life changing drugs/therapies to patients that need them.

    Cons

    The lifestyle at home office is seems to be based on who you associate with, who you go to lunch with, and who gets in earliest and stays the latest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let creativity in a bit more, legal runs the show and that kills innovation fast.

    I have been working at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    Good science, cutting edge facilities, nice benefits packages.

    Cons

    Be prepared to go elsewhere for a promotion unless you are in the right crowd, but that's likely true at most larger biotech/pharma companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more communicative.
