Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good benefits, but that about it.

Cons

Weak management, definitely on the decline and looking hard to save money wherever they can. No pride in the work, just a paycheck mentality.

Advice to Management

No one believes you anymore.

    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!


  2. "Excellent company to work for"

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people... There is a fantastic culture at AZ and it shows in its people. They are good with work life balance.

    Cons

    The company is downsizing in the manufacturing market and the pipeline is not that great, but they are investing heavily in research
