Disapproves of CEO

I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are great, Pay is average to above average. Some very capable professionals working there. Lucky to live in center of my territory - minimal travel

Cons

Very poor leadership! Pipeline is not nearly as robust as it was 5 years ago. Constant change of direction regarding sales approach. Typical pharma - lots of busy work! Always the feeling of looking over your shoulder, waiting for the next lay off!

Advice to Management

Stick with a selling model instead of checking with the experts! These "experts" are only trying to keep their jobs - of course they are going to change their selling approach every 6 months!

    Get rid of the old guard and bring in all new people with ideas of their own, less willing to delegate all decisions to consultants
