    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great employee benefits and perks, we have a very nice facility with awesome services, the company spends so much on employees in training and development. Probably the most important to me is Diversity and Inclusion, making AZ a safe place out of discrimination in any sense and you can bring yourself to work everyday.

    Cons

    Work is very fast paced and some seasons it's hard to have a work-life balance. It's normal anywhere I guess...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    "People Oriented Company"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time

      Pros

      Upper management is focused on employee's internal growth, which has a great trickle down effect onto mid level management. The company invests in annual meetings for field-based employees to network.

      Cons

      Newer mid level managers hired recently, with inconsistent management styles and opportunities.

        The pay and benefits are comparable

        Cons
