    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice facilities, well-funded labs, nice working environment, flexible benefits.

    Cons

    Forced-ranking produces toxic culture that focusses on picking on the negatives and finding easy victims. Works on a system of favourites and old-boys networks - it's more important who you're friends with than what you do. Culture is one of fear and paranoia.

    Constant reorganisations, cuts and closures.

    Rapidly declining revenues due to patent expiries make for a very uncertain future.

    Advice to Management

    Forced ranking didn't work at Enron, it killed innovation at Microsoft and it's doing the same to AZ.

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

    Pros

    People are dedicated, motivated and intelligent. Employee compensation is very good.

    Cons

    Company has no R&D to speak of with limited prospects near term. Financials are driving re-organizations across the company. Talented folks are being let go. IT innovation is starting to develop but that will take a few more years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting a positive spin on everything. Tell the realistic truth.
