I worked at AstraZeneca full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

this was an interesting work environment but the goals were always changing. The people were great, very dedicated, and committed to making things work.

Cons

The direction of the company was never clear. There was a lot of change at the senior management level resulting in shifting policies and seemingly constant downsizing. Everything has a process or it doesn't exist.

Advice to Management

There is a need to refocus and communicate the direction of the company.
