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

    Pros

    Good definitely outweighs the bad.. Good benefits, good pay. They take care of their employees. If you have any questions they have multiple ways to find answers.

    Cons

    Past your manager, they are out of touch what it’s like at the rep level. Upper management is more concerned with getting promoted.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance, Excellent Benefits, Great training, amazingly effective products

    Cons

    Management & Human Resources do not effectively respond to legitimate employee relation complaints. Culture is created on an environment of distrust and dishonesty. This starts at the Executive leadership and rolls down. Sexist, Good Ole Boys club Executive management

    Advice to Management

    AZ could be a great place to work if less emphasis is put on clocking hours and calls and more on results.
