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

    Pros

    Great company culture. Best severance package I ever received with plenty of advanced warning about the possible lay off. I enjoyed my time, team, and superior. Would not hesitate to return

    Cons

    Cant think of a thing. They communicated change at ever turn. The products where the best in the market with data to prove it. My boss was sent from heaven. She was the right balance of nurture and driver.
