    I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work place environment and self aware about the need for improvement in certain areas such as career development and lessening lengthy decision making. This is refreshing to see a company looking to improve and make their work place better.

    Cons

    Too process oriented, lenghthy decision process and can be hierarchical....but they recognize this and are putting steps in place to address this. The Sr. Leaders credibility has been questionable...but with the new CEO and re orgs in place, they are addressing this too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop over managing people...give people the accountability to get things done on their own. Reward reasonable risk takers. And, value what people are bringing to the table. Just because you may not know the person, recognize what they are bringing to the discussion - it doesn't mean they can't provide insight and value just becuase you don't know them or they haven't networked with you.
