AstraZeneca offers the kinds of benefits and rewards that boost morale, ease your mind, and allow you to concentrate on the things that matter most.
Benefits at Astra Zeneca are comparable to other large pharmaceutical companies. There are a variety of medical and dental plans from which to choose.
Best: Great pay Worst: Recently ended the pension plan and medical post retirement. A lot of employees were counting on this
Great benefits at a low cost
tuition reimbursement, 401k match, lti
401k match is great, time off is ok but no real sick or personal time given. It takes 7 years to earn another week vacation
No pension plan in the package
Benefits are excellent and employee contribution is minimal compared to other companies
Great 401k package, company car, great salary, great bonus. 2.5 months maternity/ paternity leave and ability to work part time afterwards
Health insurance, 401k, and vacation are all very fair and competitive. They are also very generous with time off for family issues.
Paid-time off is below average and no carry over is allowed - use it or lose it. Swedish site has many government mandated holidays that either stall projects or shift work to other sites. All sites have gone to "open space" with no fixed desk assignment (reserve them each day up to 2 weeks ahead) - ratio is ~1.5 people per physical desk, but the remote work plans are highly dependent on your manager, some of them still want to see you in your seat regardless. This is last-century management - when 90% of the team is spread across the globe. Dental benefits provided are poor relative to industry and region. Provider and cost are barely worth it. Network limited. Coordination of benefits (look it up!) means that i can't even buy my own insurance and supplement it. Health insurance is only 'ok' compared to peers in the industry, in the Greater Boston area. There are better networks offered for less employee cost. Long-term incentive (stock) awarded above a certain job rank. Up to 6% 401k match, 3 year vest on the matched portion. 401k managed by Fidelity so that's pretty good. On site cafeteria has gotten far more expensive for less appealing options - no convenient close options without fighting Winter St / Totten Pond traffic. Bring your lunch! Professional development at the mercy of your manager.
