    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits good. Ride days are a check the box event. If you are willing to network hard and step on others to climb the ladder to a new title you will go far.

    Cons

    Management is hands off until upper management creates a panic. Intelligent managers are far and few between. Management turn over is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Polish your resumes. The real world is coming for you soon.
