    Contractor

    Contractor (Former Employee) Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsLess stress and just need to follow what they ask you to do.

    ConsEasy to lost job any time. Very less sick and vacation leaves. En-organized work environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever got a chance to get involve with the management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great work/life balance; too top heavy however.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsThe IT management is great. A lot of the bosses are either EU based or based in Cambridge. As a result, they have a very good work/life balance. Their philosophy of allowing you to work from home so you can get your house in order and allowing you to work on stuff while in the office lessens the stress and overall allows you to feel like management cares about you.

    ConsThe management structure is very top-heavy. I report to a lot of different bosses and can rotate between managers very quickly for different projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare your intentions on converting contractors clearly.

    Great company with innovative biotech pipeline

    Scientist I (Current Employee) Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementDon't sell the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
