    Former Intern - Downstream Manufacturing Science and Technology in Frederick, MD

    I worked at MedImmune as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone in the company is very welcoming and friendly, so it is easy to fit in, even as an intern. The company culture was fun, the people were sociable, not what you normally expect from a group of scientists and engineers! As an intern, I had the perfect amount of direction and freedom. I created my own project to work on and it was successful upon the completion of my internship. Safety is a big thing there, and that is something I specifically look for when applying to jobs.

    Cons

    I wish there were more entry-level job opportunities, so I could apply to work there full-time.

    I have been working at MedImmune

    Pros

    The company was very entrepreneurial and driven to do well for the end customers/patients. Allowed flexibility and drove for excellence.

    Cons

    Corporate reorganization and closer ties with parent company, Astra Zeneca, took away the smaller company feel and independence that the company had prior to the reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve the company's employees in the operations and activities of the parent company.

    Pros

    Great pipeline, committed and engaged people, focus on science and innovation. Good opportunities for growth. Ideas welcomed. Strong support from AZ Exec Team.

    Relationships matter more than they ought to in a science based meritocracy. Still evolving processes to serve scale. Support from AZ Exec team doesn't always extend deeper in the AZ organization.
