Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Global culture, helping support the development of innovative medicines, and raising disease awareness

Cons

Poor executive leadership and accountability...the global culture is based in English and Swedish values and can be frustrating at times.

Advice to Management

Standards for performance and executive leadership accountability seem to change once you hit the glass doors of the USLT. Serious changes are needed at the executive level in the United States and in London

    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.
