Pros

You are working for a FTSE 10 international company during challenging time of evolution with highly professional and high calibre individuals

Cons

They are slow to promote and recognise contributions. Differing work life balance at each site with the London HQ fairing worse on both a work life balance and comparable salaries / bonus paid on a geographical basis. Highly political with various Kingdoms not working harmoniously

Advice to Management

You need a clear and credible strategy to grow the business. Cost cutting will not solve the main problem which is that 40% of AZ's current turnover will be gone in the next couple of years due to patent expiry. You have a strong sales force and have a pipeline which is still a couple of years from delivering siginificant returns as well as excess manufacturing capacity. Demerge the manufacturing business to compete against the generic manufacturers and utilise the sales force you have by increasing the toolkit that they have to sell.
