    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.

    Cons

    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.
