    I worked at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    Nice campus. Hard-working employees dedicated to the science. Strong mission statement.

    Cons

    Poor management. No culture of accountability. Negative environment created by a few key management officers.

    Advice to Management

    Actually execute on the mission statement. Stop the petty infighting. Support the hard working staff. Take accountability rather than pushing it to whatever corner you can.

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

    Pros

    The people are fabulous, the perks are nice & the pay is more than decent in most cases.

    Cons

    You're part of (very) big Pharma and the business decisions being made indicate that more & more clearly every year. The "we're in this together" attitude is becoming "every man for themselves" which is leading to significant burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the brilliant minds you have invested in to drive the innovation you're hoping for. Spend less on cosmetic improvements and more on fostering a culture where people are allowed to think (and work) outside the box. This will improve retention more than a passion for people development.

    I worked at MedImmune (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks and nice people

    Cons

    Too many "other duties as assigned" to work on your main duties.
    Too much favoritism, bad management.
    Toxic work environment
    Unfair annual evaluation process
    Don't call the hotline or you'll get fired
    company spends too much money on building appearances than important things

    Advice to Management

    don't hire your friends/family
    give others a chance to prove themselves

    take time to listen to your employees

    Pros

    The benefits and salary are very competitive. Although the yearly increase is little to non-existent. They do have a bonus structure that makes up for the lack of salary increase. Tor the most part, the culture is good. I think the work/life balance is what you make of it. You need to set limits or you will be taken advantage of.

    Cons

    Management can be poor at communicating and it reflects negatively on the group.
