    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    AZ has flexible work arrangements in R&D, as well as other parts of the company. There are many opportunities to work on a variety of initiatives. The pay and benefits are very good.

    Cons

    They are continually undergoing a great deal of change. Also, this is a large pharma company which can make it sometimes difficult to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Be better at choosing who you place in positions of management. Provide better "people" management and leadership support and guidance to them. Be sure they have a yearly objective that ensures they are held accountable for how they manage their people.

    Pros

    Salary and growth opportunities are there in the short term. It is taking them too long to go through the interview process.

    I have other opportunities. And I am concerned about long-term success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to the hiring process and cut it down to 8 - 10 weeks maximum.

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good reward system, strong opportunities to develop, change to work with some top-in-field colleagues. Mobile working is great for work/life balance. Excellent mentorship opportunities.

    Cons

    Not a good place to coast as you will be challenged. Lack of investment into project management and IT systems can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Management of assignment and capacity can be short sighted at times - could we invest more in our technologies to forecast/plan better.

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture and good colleagues, in almost all departments Big campus with lots of exciting things going on and great services and canteens etc. Lots of exciting opportunities both in global functions for the company as well as for local Macclesfield site specific

    Cons

    Some HR processes are quite lengthy and non-transparent and talent programmes besides any graduate or apprentice programmes are non-existent or just not communicated. I have seen some great talent leave for other companies with more training opportunities. Processes are often unbearably complex and require documentation and written approval for almost everything. However, given that it is a pharmaceutical company it...

    Increase transparency into the organisation and increase focus on development in terms of training and certifications

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time

    Pros

    Good facilities Flexible working arrangements Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Some people had to work everyday of their notice period (3 months, 6 months or 1 year) and other get to have a year off on full pay. No consistency between functions which cause tensions. Career ladder limited if not in a Science based role

    Advice to Management

    Need to treat all individuals the same. Huge salary discrepancies
