I have been working at AstraZeneca as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing People, relaxed work hours, good benefits, good pay and scientifically challenging. Also lots of opportunities to help you develop as a chemist.

Cons

Company is in bad shape with regards to products, lots of fear about redundancies etc. Too many management initiatives i.e Lean six Sigma imposed on scientists.

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

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice colleagues, learning new things, nice restaurant, good possibility to change work area and still work at the same place. Good work environment - clean and high class.

    Cons

    Large organization, you can easily get lost. It is a closed world and you can easily loose contact with the "real" world outside. You can easily get spoiled and find it hard to work somewhere else.
