    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 3 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!

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ample parking and friendly security staff. Lot of good people who work there. Their jobs pay rate is top of the scale.

    Cons

    Lot of MAGA supporters who are not shy in expressing their political views. People there also love their GUNS! This facility in on its last leg. They are no producing new product through here and instead, build a new facility in another state. They already started to sell the rights to their drugs and maybe the plant will officially close in next few years.
