I have been working at MedImmune full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is high compared to similar positions elsewhere. Benefits are sweet - medical/dental/stock options/bonus/401k. Interesting work.

Cons

The company says there is a career ladder but they would rather hire from outside the company than develop talent.

Advice to Management

Start hiring from within the company and develop talent starting all the way at the bottom.

    Pay does not always feel commensurate with level of work

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of employees as individuals while dealing with business decisions that affect the company as a whole

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

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, flexible work schedule, good compensation, friendly people, able to learn and have discussions on new scientific information, free fruits and breakfast items.

    Cons

    political, very little mentoring and support, not action oriented, not many people smiled in the hallway, many scientists were not necessarily aligned with the business goals so they worked on their own projects.

    Advice to Management

    Smart, scientific people don't always make the best managers and leaders to drive the business to success.
