Try cuting costs on senior management levels.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    People are wonderful and egos are really checked at the door most of the days to get things done.

    Cons

    Not much of a future for the company in the next 5-7 years. All downside with CEO David Brennen being forced out in the next few months. If he wants to or not, he's out. This will change culture, direction, and the exit of talent.

    Advice to Management

    After years on the current strategy that clearly is not working, isn't time to admit it's not working, change and move forward. Global priories message was too funny, #1 sell drug. LOL. Too late. Its probably a violation of some code of conduct.

    Pros

    AstraZeneca provides an employee with many opportunities to advance ones' career. They have in place many valuable tools for one to be challenged.

    Cons

    The communication at times could be better provided by upper management. Some times rumors get the best of people and wrong information is released.
