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

Pros

Conservative company with long history of success. Senior management team is strong and has vision for future return to growth. Good benefits and many opportunities if willing to be flexible. One of the best "big-pharma" companies to work for. Historically very stable and fair place to work.

Cons

Very difficult to advance in the sales organization. Limited pipeline and loss of patent exclusivity leads to feelings of job insecurity. Lower pay than other pharma companies. Slow to make changes. The technology and IT support in place is challenging to say the least.

Advice to Management

The senior sales leadership team is very good. Middle management lacks vision and leadership. Work to improve communication and do not rely on the company's home page and email alerts as the main vehicle to provide faith in the future.
