    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, as long as you work it out with your manager. Executive Leadership is actually leading the company to scientific greatness - we're helping more and more patients - it's an exciting time to be a part of the organization

    Cons

    The constant re-orgs get tiresome.... even if there is no headcount reduction, we spend a lot of time trying to re-define how we work with each other

    I have been working at AstraZeneca for less than a year

    Pros

    It is a great environment and culture at the philadelphia AZ/Media site. Management are nice and you interact with the site leadership team. It is cozy and people tend to want to help you if you show you want to be there.

    Cons

    Since you are a contractor with entry level experience there isn't a lot of opportunities to be a fulltime.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for the entry level guys. Head count should not be reduced at the entry level but rather at the management level.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good people at the grass roots level. The pay is still very good. There will be growth opportunities at the core sites as other sites shut down.

    Cons

    Questionable direction from senior leaders; a high risk strategy with changes to sites. Morale is generally low even for people who have survived site closures because they know they could be next.

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

    Pros

    Great salary, onsite hair salon, store & gym--that's about it.

    Cons

    Pretty much all else; a once great workplace brought to its knees by the ill-fated merger with Astra; continuous reorganization, Byzantine layers of bureaucracy, nonsensical cost-cutting (to the point of workers' having to scrounge for basic office supplies, no $ for professional development of any kind, virtually all business travel cut for anyone outside of upper, upper management), leaders who are blatant in their...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old guard and bring in all new people with ideas of their own, less willing to delegate all decisions to consultants
