    AZ is not the company Medimmune Was

    Sep 23, 2020 - Associate Director in Gaithersburg, MD
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, bonus, LTI. You can learn a lot and work with very smart folks.

    Cons

    No work/life balance with 60 hours/week expected or you will get a low job review rating. AZ has biases against the former Medimmune employees and has made an effort to push them out of the organization and was told that in 2019 60% of those such employees left company. Has become a big pharma company and very political. UK management calls all the shots over the USA staff.
