    I have been working at MedImmune full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Best paying biotech in the area.

    - Decent benefits, but I've seen better years

    Cons

    - People are hired and promoted based on who they know, not what they know.

    - Manufacturing is 24/7, with 10 hour days and overnight shifts. One of the worst night shifts works every Friday night into Saturday morning, which is a nightmare for any parent. Expect to spend years on the night shift if you start there.

    - Very slow to hire. Some temps have been working here years without full-time prospects

    - Growing company with a lot of growing pains that need to be worked out. GMP documents need a lot of work. "Fly by wire" manufacturing with a lot of pitfalls for technicians

    - Lots of overtime, could be a good thing or bad thing.

    - Upper management out of touch with the "donut makers"

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good place for biotech in MD area

    Advice to Management

    Work on gap analysis between upper management and workers. Lack of communication and guidance in most departments
